The latest edition to Fashion at A Plus comes courtesy of Personal Stylist & Fashion Blogger Silk Allen.   Keeping reading to find out more from the Cleveland native & her company The House of Fly by Lady Silk LLC.

Allen initially got her start during her time at Central State University helping her fellow students get dressed for homecoming, business days, job fairs and other important events on a college budget.  She styled outfits by way of thrift stores and Wal-Mart.

When it comes to her clients Silk makes it her personal mission to find out the most about them.   To get a better idea she asks about their interests, where they work if they have children and etc.  This helps her come up with a style plan for the individual.  “If I just pulled a trend off the runway and forced it on my client, that’s considered fashion styling- styling you for the moment in the trendiest looks, whereas a personal stylist styles you for your current lifestyle or the one you want to have.”

As a plus-size woman herself, Silk started styling scenes for local fashion shows for fellow plus-size women.  She has even utilized her own clothes and accessories to create killer looks on the runway.
