A graduate of FIDM, Brittany works as a colorist assistant for Nordstrom; her job is to sample the season’s colors for the in-house brands, making sure that the manufacturers send fabrics that are spot-on with the design team’s vision. To stay on top of current trends, she studies a wide range of fashion and style blogs daily to get inspired.

Describing how to put a closet together, Brittany tells us it’s all about basics. “Not trendy or bright colors and patterns; I like my pieces to go with everything and not have to worry about specific items that only go with one other piece. I love things that mix and match easily – then I can throw in a little pop of something if I want to.”
