We had the pleasure to meet in our London Atelier the charismatic and inspiring business woman Charis Tam who revealed her favourite looks and secrets to stay stylish from day to night.

Who is your style icon?

My mom was always my style icon. She always wore classic dresses that she would accessorize with jewellery, the dresses were usually trimmed with lace or ruffles. I followed her trend.

What is the right look for your usual busy day?

I have a walk-in wardrobe at work and I have 30 pairs of shoes. I have a team of 500 people so I need to look professional when I give presentations. I have to wear trendy outfits for events being held by fashion magazines or when I have visits from the press at the office.

Do you prefer more classic or cutting edge style?

My style is more feminine and a little bit glamorous for events. I have to go for Swarovski jewellery so that is why we don’t wear anything too colourful. My personal style is more classic. I like some detailing, like different materials, I like going for different fabrics, usually in black.

What is your favourite outfit for a function or event?

A classic black dress with @Swarovski jewellery.

What is the best style tip for business travel women?

My tip is to go comfortable on the flight. I take a combination of shoes with me, so flats for the flight and heels for events. I like to bring pieces that I can accessorize easily with jewellery for events, and that can take me from day to night.
