Dana Asher, stylist extraordinaire, is available around the clock to help you with all you sartorial needs. Read below and check out her profile in the “Styling” section of the site.
When did you know you wanted to be a stylist?
I have always been into clothes. I went to fashion school and worked in the fashion industry for 10 years before I got married. I was married for seventeen years, and one day my husband came home and told me I had to get a job because he lost his job and couldn’t find work. That week I ran into another mom at my kids school and she told me “you always look so great, can I pay you to shop for me?”. I now shop for most of the studio executives, and as they say, the rest is history.
How would you describe your own personal style?
Fun, sophisticated and great shoes. It’s all about my shoes.
Recent luxe buy?
Obviously it falls into the shoe category. I bought Christian Louboutin black suede platform boots. I kiss them every day and don’t take them out of the box.
Recent budget buy?
Target socks. No one makes better pima cotton socks.
I have a weakness for collecting purses and shoes. I got my first Gucci bag on Madison Avenue when I was thirteen years old. I still wear it.
Worst fashion faux pas:
Wearing spandex in the eighties
Monogramed sheets from Pratesi and a crocodile mini Birkin
Watching reruns of Get Smart and seeing what Barbara Feldon wore.
Target and Neiman Marcus
