The act of getting dressed in the morning has the power to make or break your day. Your clothes should be a confidence booster and a reflection of who you are and who you aspire to be. I truly believe that the way you decide to present yourself to the world has a direct effect on the way you feel, and on how you are treated. -Anne Hanekom

A: I have always loved fashion and the art of getting dressed. We moved to Pittsburgh 3 years ago from Cape Town, South-Africa.

I decided to go back to my love for fashion and combine it with my passion for helping people. I did an internationally certified image consultant/personal stylist course through the sa.image academy and hence started Anne H Styles.
