What characteristics (cultural, personality etc) make you unique?

Along with the fact that they are mother & daughter, Alison & Delia are working to make the fashion industry more accessible, approachable and inclusive. Their vibe is Southern meets New York meets global style.

What inspired you to first come together and create The Style That Binds Us?

After starting our own blogs, we joined forces to launch our media platform with The Style That Binds Us YouTube channel, podcast, blog, social media & newsletter highlighting culture through the lens of style. Having gained inside access to the fashion industry, we’re pulling back the curtain & bringing our community along with us!

What is your favorite aspect of working together as a mother daughter duo? Taking our shared love of fashion and creating a business together that enhances people’s lives.

What is inspiring you in fashion at the moment?

Getting dressed up again (specifically in Mestiza) & showing the world who you are through your wardrobe.

What is your best advice for someone looking to develop their personal style?

Do a deep dive into your body type to learn what works best for your figure and what colors work based on your skin tone. Here’s a link to a quick YouTube video with more information:

Why is it important for you to empower women?

Rising tides raise all ships! No one knows everything, and it is so important to share our knowledge and experiences to both advance ourselves & lift each other up.

How did you like your Mestiza piece?! Any details on how it fit or made you feel?

Like a princess :) We ADORE Mestiza. We are incredibly thankful to have found a brand that matches high quality pieces with exquisite designs. We are literally stopped on the street when we are in a Mestiza dress, & this is before we even get to the event! We feel we can achieve anything in our Mestiza pieces and always have the best time while wearing them!
