For these five fabulous ladies, fashion isn’t just a state of mind; it’s a lifestyle.

Stylish Strokes
For fashion designer Mimoza Windisch, dressing well is both business and pleasure.

The best way to describe my approach to fashion is… You always need to be comfortable in your own style and never let trends or fads convince you to wear something that isn’t you.
A piece I wear that empowers me is... a Dolce & Gabbana black pinstripe stretch suit.
If I could swap wardrobes with anyone, it would be… Carrie Bradshaw.
The most cherished piece in my closet has to be… a vintage Chanel dress.
In Orange County, I shop at… Intermix, Neiman Marcus and Elyse Walker.
I don’t leave for the office without… a pencil skirt and black pumps.
When meeting clients all day, my favorite style is… my own creations—handknit, A-line dresses—I accessorize them with loud, chunky jewelry.
My ultimate fashion splurge is… a fabulous Hermès fuchsia pink Niloticus handbag.
The ultimate trendsetter of today is… Stella McCartney.
Stilettos or blocks? Stilettos.
Black or white? White.
