There are countless ways to describe stylist Renée Lara’s vision, but perhaps the best is personal. For over 20 years, Renée has cultivated her professional artistry, working for both luxury boutiques and larger retailers such as Adidas and Anthropologie. As a Stylist, Renée aims to encourage clarity, individuality and a sense of personal renewal.
Renée’s studies began in pre-nursing, then, ultimately, Psychology and Entrepreneurial Business at The University of Portland. Her travels include Asia, Europe and South America. It was in India that Renée witnessed the health benefits of color, scent and texture, which prompted her to study apparel design at the Art Institute of Portland. The Art Institute led to her involvement in Portland’s Fashion Incubator and, and subsequently, to Portland’s Fashion Week. Being a Personal Stylist for Anthropologie, Renée was continuously exposed to and inspired by the latest trends, which she mixes with her sharp eye for a classic yet modern twist. Using color, fabrics, patterns and textures, Renée energizes and inspires transformation.
No matter the client or need, she will connect personal style to fashion and well-being.
Renée lives in Portland with her husband and two sons.
