5 QUESTIONS IN 5 MINUTES: LAURIE BRUCKER
Hills Penthouse member, Laurie Brucker, is a certified image consultant, personal stylist, motivational speaker, and brand ambassador. She believes that style can be empowering not just for your wardrobe but for your life.
1. What Do You Like Most About Working at Hills Penthouse West Hollywood?
It’s chic, it’s stylish. There is just a really laid back vibe where everyone is hustling at the same time. So when I come here to work that energy infuses me so I hustle a bit more. When everyone else is doing their thing I get to do my thing.
2. What made you want to start your own business?
I was a fashion designer for 7 years in New York City. I loved working in wardrobe but I just felt I had a greater purpose in the world. When I decided to leave New York I went back to school at FIT, got a degree in Image Consulting, and moved back here to Los Angeles where I am originally from. I started an image consulting business because I could use all the knowledge I had in wardrobe and style and apply it to the individual. I found over the course of my business the tools of style can empower people. I specifically work with women to empower them through the art of wardrobe so they can be their best selves.
3. What does a day in the life look like?
A day in the life of Laurie B style is very different every day. Sometimes in the morning I’m doing yoga and getting my day started at home and then I head out to Hills and start getting to business on emails and pitching proposals or working with clients and putting style books together. I’m currently working on an exciting project, so when I come to Hills I am working on this project specifically.
4. Early Bird or Night Owl?
I tend to be a night owl but I kind of wish I was an early bird because I really like morning air!
5. What do you want to accomplish by the end of the year?
Well, I am working here specifically because I am doing something very exciting in my business. By the end of this year I will not only have finished this exciting project but I will be able to give it to the world to change lives. By the end of this year I will be changing lives and changing the game of fashion and style with my work. That exciting thing I’m working on will be a fun surprise, so stay tuned!
