We had the good fortune of connecting with Daun Green and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daun, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
My favorite affirmation is do good onto others and others will do good onto you!
As a fashion stylist, one more the most important things is the way you treat another’s brands garments! You return the piece the same way you would want someone to treat your garments!
As well, as the way you conduct business for yourself it’ll reflect on the way you do good business with others!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m currently working on a project with Detroit is Your Couture (I’m 1/3 of the team) we’re showcasing our designers in September NYFW! As well, as a few movies I’ve styled for are available on Amazon Prime Weight The Movie, Child Support, Instafamous and Sincerely! We have an upcoming movie releasing soon “Narc”
Starting off as a wardrobe stylist in Detroit was not easy because a lot of people are not familiar with what we do regarding pulling items for clients and extending the brands clientele more with our customers! The hurdle was making brands more accepting regarding what I do as a fashion stylist and then making a turnover with my clients becoming customers at the stores I was pulling from…it definitely turn out that way and it continues to give my business a good reputation!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting me in Detroit we would definitely have to do brunch at The Block, then we would go shopping at Detroit Is The New Black, Dose, and have to do dinner at East Eats! We would grab some drinks at Campus Maritus too
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My goodness sooo many people deserve a recognition in my success story but first and foremost I give praises to the most high God, my Mother whose always been a fashion icon in my eyes, my supportive family and friends, and the designers and boutiques owners I’ve worked with!
