An avid runner and yoga enthusiast, Donna has lived in Austin since 2005 when she moved from her hometown of Phoenix. Donna has always been drawn to fashion, and has fond memories of dressing up with her older cousins and staging runway shows and photo shoots in their childhood bedrooms.
Although Donna’s love affair with fashion continued through college, she graduated from Arizona State University and used her networking skills as a fundraiser for various companies, non-profits, and educational institutions. Having never lived in a so-called “fashion city” like New York or Milan, it hadn’t occurred to her that the job of fashion is everywhere! And so Donna left fundraising in early 2011 to pursue her dream of helping women and men feel great about their appearance through personal wardrobe styling.
Donna’s husband, Lon Ingram, shares her exuberance for life. The two met in Austin and married in 2009. Together they love running, entertaining at home, exploring new restaurants and going to concerts. Donna says Lon was her first “client” when she helped him go from a fashion-stalled ex-Airman to the fashion-forward man he is today.
Donna uses fashion to express herself and interact with the world. She draws on the creative power of clothing to show her best self. Donna wants to promote her clients’ sense of self and give them a healthy view of their bodies. She isn’t interested in changing her clients. As long as they look good and feel good, Donna has done her job. Donna says, “Life is too short to fret about sizes and what people will think of you — just have fun, love yourself and wear what makes you feel beautiful!”
