Topic: How to create a beautifully organized closet and then go one step further! 

Beth will lead an interactive presentation focusing on organizing and designing closets for maximum efficiency. Whether clients have a closet system or just a bar and a shelf, rent or own their homes, she will discuss creative solutions for a variety of client needs. She will also provide tips on how to design a closet from the ground up.

Leslie will discuss how to help you and your client feel empowered when walking into a closet from the use of accessories to creating new outfits.  She will also give some hints about creating an efficient travel capsule for the travelers in our midst.   It is all about confidence and style!

About the speakers:   Leslie Coller and Beth Levin

Leslie Coller is a Native Floridian –- She was born in Miami Beach and graduated from the University of Miami with a BBA.    She has 2 children and the same hubby for 33 years.

For the first 25 years of her career she worked in special events and the travel industry.  She also owned a children’s clothing business, taught Mommy and Me, and was a substitute teacher. 

But then she found her passion:  Leslie has been a stylist for 9 years.  She has helped nearly 1500 women find a new way to shop for their wardrobes. This has been both rewarding and exciting.    Leslie has a great desire to help women conquer their fear of the closet –she does this by helping them find the confidence needed to get dressed every day.  Most of her clients will tell you that before Leslie they purchased clothing because it fit or because it was a bargain.  Now these women shop with a purpose, unafraid of embracing a new sense of style.  With Leslie as their stylist they enter their closet each morning knowing that when they leave it for the day, they will look and feel beautiful.
