Bridgette Raes is one of the most respected, seasoned and sought after personal stylists in the country. She is the president of Bridgette Raes Style Group and author of the book Style Rx: Dressing the Body You Have to Create the Body You Want. Her witty, down-to-earth advice has made her a sought-after writer, spokesperson and style expert for countless media outlets worldwide.
In her 20 years in fashion, Bridgette has worked in every area of the industry. She worked in retail fashion while getting her design degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology and spent nearly a decade designing. In 2002, she decided that her expertise would be put to better use showing women how to wear clothing that brings out their own unique style, rather than simply designing it. It was this revelation that inspired her to start Bridgette Raes Style Group. Since starting her company, Bridgette has worked with clients all over the world.
Bridgette’s popular blog has been called “The thinking woman’s guide to style” and is read by hundreds of thousands of women monthly. Her book, Style Rx: Dressing the Body You Have to Create the Body You Want (Perigee/Penguin 2008) was written to relate to the “everyday woman”, including realistic advice and over 250 photos of real women with real bodies, many of whom are clients, not professional models. In addition to her own book, Bridgette has contributed her expertise on image, style and wardrobe management to many other books.
