On June 1, Julia Farr Collection unveiled a new direction for our company – recruiting and empowering women around the country to start their own business selling Julia Farr Collection in their city.
Two months later, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Fall 2015 Collection with our brand new wardrobe consultants. Last week, we kicked off shows in two cities – Wilmette, IL and Kansas City, MO.
We thought it would be fun for all of our You Look Pretty readers to meet our new team, since we think they are an incredible group of women! Every one of them has an impressive professional background – in finance, public relations, and, yes, fashion – and all of them bring a fresh perspective, sense of fun and incredible energy to our company.
So, without further ado, meet Mimi Brault
