We are now just a few days from opening! The past few months I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the most creative people who have all been involved in the opening preparations of Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown. More recently I had the opportunity to meet our new Resident Stylist April Yvonne.
April has been styling since she was a young girl in grade school, which over the years progressed into a part-time gig with her co-workers and friends. Later, her styling passion and skills transformed into a full time career that has taken her to New York Fashion Week and throughout the world. Traveling from Tokyo to Buenos Aires and even landing a styling job for Dior, April has developed a keen understanding of fashion and personal style. In 2010 April brought this fashion knowledge to D.C. and established her blog MyDCStyle.
Recently I had the chance to ask her a couple questions about her role as Capella Washington, D.C.’s Resident Stylist.
What are you most looking forward to about being the Resident Stylist for Capella Washington D.C., Georgetown?
I’m truly looking forward to being a part of an amazing team – which in my opinion is comprised of the best-of-the-best. There is absolutely nothing like the Capella Washington, D.C. and I’m eager for guests to see first-hand just how fabulous this hotel is. As the Resident Stylist, I’m excited to work with the guests to bring them the finest fashions and introduce them to the fashion scene in DC. I also can’t wait to partner with some of the hottest designers to deliver high-end fashion shows for the guests. There is much more planned and I just can’t wait to get started!
What unique personal style services will you offer for guests?
I am here to fulfill all of their fashion styling needs! I can arrange exclusive shopping excursions including private after-hours shopping at some of the area’s finest luxury stores or should they wish to remain in the comfort of their suite, I can curate a selection of amazing looks to bring to them to try on and choose from. I also have a great relationship with many designers (even those based in New York or Paris!), making it a seamless process for me to obtain unique pieces.
