From effortlessly classic to fearlessly fashion-forward, these San Diego women are taking care of business, one stylish step at a time.

With effortless elegance that’s more East Coast than West, this interior designer is subtly refining glamour for a modern era.

The best style advice I ever received was... Intrigue is created by leaving certain things up to the imagination. My favorite designers are... Cecilie Bahnsen, Nicky Zimmermann and Dries Van Noten. When it comes to footwear, I always... invest. Shoes are my thing. I never leave the house without... my earrings on. Usually plain gold hoops. My first fashion moment was… arriving in NYC to attend Parsons School of Design and bearing witness to the industrial side of the fashion industry. It takes so much to create and produce, but from the outside, all you see is that which glitters. I’m currently working on… a contemporary take on a rustic ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyo., a modern high-rise home for an art lover in Palm Beach, Fla., and a historic renovation in Coronado for a family who loves to entertain.
