fashion: style saint

Allison Beal

Style Saint is a new, cutting edge web community totally worth checking out if you haven't already! It's a little bit like pinterest but strictly for fashion and style inspiration. You can create beautifully designed slide shows as Style Look Books and embed them into your blog! It is in the Beta stage, but we are really enjoying it and are going to start incorporating style look books into our blog, so we wanted to share it with you all!

I sat down with Allison Beal, the founder and self proclaimed Wild Woman Warrior, about six months ago and left beyond inspired and impressed. The Venice Beach based entrepreneur is an incredibly talented woman who is a visionary of the next generation and well ahead of her years. I'm so excited to see Style Saint evolve and I know with Allison's dedication and upcoming genius plans, the future is very bright for this edgy start-up!

ABOUT STYLE SAINT FROM ALLISON: I've been making StyleBooks since I was 13. First as ripped out images from fashion magazines hot-glue gunned to my mother's left-over fabric samples, then as floor-to-ceiling collages in my bedroom, and finally as perfectly laid-out InDesign files in preparation for fashion design. I'm not sure why, but for my entire life I ripped every page I loved out of any magazine I could get my sticky paws on; dentist's waiting rooms, hair salons, straight off the shelf of my local magazine stand, anywhere. I had a complete obsession and an unrelenting desire to collect the images of things I worshipped. I found myself in those torn-up pages. I could fall in love with people I'll never know, things I've never seen, and worlds I'll never visit. I wasn't limited by how I looked or what I could afford – I could define myself any way I wanted to. I devoured content; I collected it, curated it, and then put it together in my own personal StyleBook.
This is my story, it's the true-as-life and sweet-as-sugar foundation of what we've built at StyleSaint.
Style is not meant to be kept a secret, it's a badge that's self-defining and meant to be shared. I want to know your story. I want to see what you worship and how you define yourself.
You have a story to tell, say it in style.
xoxo, Allison
