They first met when Rebecca’s mother sat on Herbert’s favorite booth at his favorite restaurant and rest is history.

Since Rebecca was interested in studying human behavior, she got enrolled at the private but religious institute, Loyola Marymount University and earned a degree in psychology from there. Unfortunately, if we look at it now, her degree in psychology is a complete waste of her time as eventually, she turned out to be a wardrobe stylist.


Before discovering her passion for styling celebrities, Rebecca has worked as a Behavioral therapist and used to diagnose children who have autism. Later, she left that career to pursue her love for the celebrity lifestyle.

In order to gain some experience, she started as an assistant under famous celebrity stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. They are two of the most renowned names in the fashion industry and have even worked for Jada Pinkett Smith, Kerry Washington, and Rihanna. This job helped her gain confidence, made her learn how to work under pressure and how to handle situations that go wrong. She began making contacts and a lot of friends from the same industry. Later she was signed up for a TV reality show “Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches,” and that was the turning point for her.
