Welcome to season 2, episode 46 of the Today is the Day Changemakers Podcast.
This week my guest is Jes Ruzic, Certified Personal Stylist & Image Consultant. She has been helping women discover their styles for nearly a decade.
Jes has styled Covergirl Models at New York Fashion Week runway shows and dressed Comic-Con models. In her day to day, she dresses keynote speakers, revitalizes wardrobes and helps her clients recycle clothing in the appropriate way.
Jes helps clients with color analysis, so that they look and feel their best. She will come into your home, clean out and evaluate your closet for relevancy. During the interview she shares how so many times we keep things in our closet that do not bring back fond memories or make us feel good when we put them on. She also speaks to the importance in loving ourselves for where we are right now in our personal journey. We may not be at our ideal weight, but that doesn't mean we can't feel good in what we leave the house in every day.
Our conversation goes from undergarments to red carpets.
Did you know that textile dying is the number two leading cause of water pollution! Listen in to hear Jes talk about how Helpsy is doing all they can to keep clothes out of the trash. Jes has a true commitment to sustainability and passion for textile recycling that has led her to partner with organizations such as Dress For Success, Soles 4 Souls, and H&M to name a few. She enjoys going out to speak on the importance of sustainability in the fashion industry to organizations.
Listen in to hear the footprint Jes is creating now that she wants to leave behind. You can also find Jes on Instagram @jesruzicstylist.
