Fashion is public, but style is personal. In this article feature, we're going to be discussing the formulas of style and elements of sophisticated fashion to glam up your wardrobe selections. We have a prestigious doctor on this edition of NEECEE LEXY to guide us through this laboratory session.
On our selected list of Top 100 Self Made Entrepreneurs from around the globe, we have the gorgeous Dr. Charlene Lawson as our special guest for this feature interview. Dr. Charlene Lawson is a chemist PhD holder from Howard University. In addition, Dr Charlene is a certified wardrobe stylist, CEO and, founder of Style Chemistry Consulting based in Houston,Texas.
We are thrilled to have her here on the NEECEE LEXY blog to discuss her journey as a chemist and as a certified wardrobe stylist. Not to be biased, but as a fashion model and a kinesiologist major myself. I've been super excited to release this interview with Dr. Charlene Lawson.
The main reason we've created the TOP 100 SELF MADE ENTREPRENEURS from around the world is to showcase these talented and inspiring entrepreneurs' platforms, many of whom positively impact our communities with their civic duties, technological development, social media marketing and the breaking of barriers as female-founded enterprises. These are truly remarkable breakthroughs that are worth sharing. For instance, despite her career in the oil industry (a well-known male dominated field) where successful women struggle to express themselves outwardly, Dr. Charlene has proven, she can stay strong in a male-dominated career field such as a chemist and still run her business! Now, THAT'S a boss move!
I too find it hard at times to explain to people me being a Kinesiologist and Fashion Model is possible. Today, I am honoured to have Dr Lawson to decode the elements of fashion and introduce us to her styling formulas. Get your papers, pens and, let's get ready to be inspired and empowered.
Please, tell us about yourself short intro?
I am a PhD Chemist, Certified Wardrobe Stylist and Mom of 2 outstanding young men
WOW! What is the inspiration behind the STYLE CHEMISTRY CONSULTING?
I worked in the oil industry, a well-known male dominated field. Many of my female colleagues were accomplished and successful but struggling to express themselves outwardly. I revamped a few closets and truly saw the power of Style. They strutted differently and had a new level of confidence! When we look good we feel good and when we feel good we perform better in all areas of our lives! Style has the ability to transform and build confidence!
The name came about when I realized that most women struggle to put together outfits. - so I've developed “styling formulas” to help busy, driven women streamline their morning routines, and get dressed effortlessly!".
