Who is your friend in the closet?· 0 comments · Friend in the Closet
Tami Orloff started honing her craft at a young age by refusing to conform to what her peers were wearing and instead proudly developing her own unique style. Teased for always being fashion forward and on trend, at 11 years old Tami was let loose in the stockrooms of I. Magnin in California where she pulled clothes for everyone in her family. While barely in her teens, Tami’s mother’s friends hired her to put together their own unique looks. She orchestrated her first fashion show, for the American Heart Association, at just 15. Her future in fashion styling and image directing was set at this very young age. It’s safe to say she was born to do it.
As an in-demand stylist for celebrities, business leaders, politicians and plenty of real people living real lives, Tami also ranked as one of the top performing Wardrobe Image Consultants at Saks Fifth Avenue for nearly two decades. She traveled with the SFA executive team to the runway shows in New York, Paris and Milan and participated in the market appointments that ultimately affected the merchandise mix and trends for the coming seasons. Her visionary approach and dedication to her local Beverly Hills SFA coworkers and clients led to her current position as “ director of image and lifestyle” at tamiorloff.com, a website, dedicated to sharing information on many “lifestyle” topics and encouraging self expression through collaboration.
Over the years, Tami has become a go-to for clients and friends offering solutions to a variety of needs that extend to many areas of their lives including image. Many of them refer to her as an “Image and lifestyle information marketplace.”
Actively involved in philanthropic work, Tami serves on the St. John’s Hospital Volunteer support team dedicated to assisting nurses and patients, as well as a member of the Compassionate Companion program known as NODA. Additionally, her passion for making a difference with youth led her to speaking and mentoring at Universities including CSUN, California State University Northridge and other programs that support our future leaders.
“The gift of making a difference by sharing experience with others is one of the greatest rewards of earned wisdom”.
