Occupation Director of public relations and social media, Boston Ballet
Residence Warwick, R.I.Has your style changed much since you went from working in fashion to a nonprofit?
It hasn’t, actually. I still wear the same types of things to work that I would at Marc Jacobs, though I have more of an opportunity to dress up at Boston Ballet due to nights in the theater.What did you learn about personal style from working in fashion?
What’s interesting about being on the inside of fashion is that you see that the people who look great all the time are the people who really march to the beat of their own drum, who dress to please themselves.Has Boston Ballet shaped your style?
Being in a creative environment like this gives you a freedom to dress however you feel inspired that day. I do think there’s an influence, especially when we’re at the theater and there’s a little bit more makeup and costume.What spring trends do you like?
It’s nice to see all of the black-and-white high contrast. I think there’s going to be a lot of stripes for a while. Black and white is looking so fresh, and even just wearing a black skirt with a white blouse or T-shirt looks really new.
