We had the good fortune of connecting with Dawn Cirone and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dawn, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I knew from a very young age that I have always wanted my own boutique. Over the years of being in retail, I enjoyed building the relationships with my clients and bringing their own spark through fashion. Its dream come true to be able to do this for a living.
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 studied at FIT in NYC, abroad in Italy, worked for various fashion companies throughout my career from sourcing, to sales and lastly in luxury retail. While styling many women from New York and Palm Beach where I truly shine, I got sparked.
The meaning behind got sparked, is when you get the feeling of pure joy running through your body and its contagious to others. That is the feeling I get when I style my clients. My passion of seeing the spark in others comes through my creative and unique styling techniques.
Was it easy… Absolutely not! I am still learning everyday about myself, about my business and the fashion trends around me. It is only making me stronger and wiser as I conquer the newest ways of the industry.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Gosh, this is a difficult question, we have so many amazing places to see. My friend would definitely go home exhausted. From our wonderful restaurants to our gorgeous museums to our paradise beaches, Palm Beach is a beautiful place to visit and even better to live.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My mom has always inspired me. She has juggled some many hats, raising four daughters and has pulled it off in a fashionable way.
