Here at HQ, I work with a wide variety of people, but there is one thing they all have in common and that’s great style!
In fact, when I’m not writing about fashion and style, I’m usually analyzing theirs. Everything from their new tights to their latest purchases, never go unnoticed when I’m around and with good reason.
They’re my style inspiration on the daily and I bet they’re about to become yours! Ready for a dose of fashion inspiration?
Today, meet Alyeska, our Chief Operations Officer!
1. In a nutshell, what do you do in your position at From Rachel?
I take care of logistics and operations for the company. I make sure that all orders are processed and that customers receive what they ordered, and are satisfied. My job also includes inventory management and sourcing from our suppliers.
2. What’s your favourite thing about your job?
The fact that everyday is different and that my days can always change! As soon as we’ve finished implementing a new project, we’re developing new things to improve our customer experience.
3. Describe your personal style in 3 words…
Chic, timeless and elegant when I have events, and natural or sporty the rest of the time.
4. Who’s your style icon and why?
Kate Middleton: She’s elegance at its purest form! Even in a simple pair of jeans, she is always so chic.
5. Which items are currently in your From Rachel shopping cart?
Rachel's new shorts. They're perfect for staying active, and I can easily slip a pair into my purse for my Bixi rides.
6. Your spirit animal is…
Sheryl Sandberg: An inspiration in terms of professional success. Her vision of women's place in the workplace and their success is very much alive today! To succeed, you have to want it and go for it!
7. Which fashion items could you not live without?
I like small, chic and discreet patterns that make all the difference. That’s why I can’t live without my printed tights with polka dots and hearts, as well as our Back Heart Seam Tights.
8. Fill in the blank: When I’m not at work, I’m…
I’m staying active! I can’t spend a week without my usual dose, especially in the summer. This summer, you will find me at the pool at Parc Jean Drapeau, along the Lachine Canal running or on country roads cycling, and doing just about any other outdoor activity. When I’m resting, I will be on a terrace with my friends and my boyfriend, or spending a weekend at a cottage on the countryside. During the winter, I’m more into cooking and watching Netflix.
