Fashion Stylist & Personal Style Coach: Steffany Bready-Edwards aka SteffanyAllen
Steffany Bready-Edwards knew early on she was destined for a career in fashion. Her grandfather Benjamin Allen, an exceptional tailor, was an initial source of fashion inspiration. Wanting to stand out from the crowd in school, Bready-Edwards made her own clothes and ultimately created her distinct fashion style and voice.
Now residing in Brooklyn, NY, Bready-Edwards earned an AAS in Fashion Design from Bauder Fashion College in Atlanta, Georgia. Subsequently in 1992, she studied Accessories Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Bready-Edwards has worked in retail, sales, designer showrooms, studios and in production in the fashion industry for more than twenty years. She began her work at the prestigious Manolo Blahnik in 1995; starting out as an assistant in shipping/receiving and quickly being promoted to Manager of Production and Distribution.
In 2009, Bready-Edwards parted ways with Manolo Blahnik establishing her own business. Once again inspired by her grandfather, she created SteffanyAllen, LLC.
