Four years marks a milestone that is almost
impossible to put into words. In fact, we’ve put in a lot of miles since day one of The Style Line’s first chapter. For context, I’m currently writing this letter from Austin, Texas, where we’ll be celebrating with our community tonight at Byron & Blue – if you’re in town we’d love to see you there, and if not, no worries! Be sure to catch up on our story with them here. (In the spirit of travel, also revisit our past few birthday celebrations with our New York and Portland communities too).
Yet no matter where I am in the world, it’s amazing for me to personally reflect on the fact that four years ago I left college, relaunched The Style Line, and began building the business you know (and hopefully, love!) today. With another year in the books, I’m proud to say that our platform has amassed a global roster of both interviewees and contributors. Specifically, this includes eleven active contributors, spanning across four countries, who continue to share their talents to bring these important stories to life.
This year, we’ve also had fantastic opportunities to reconnect with past collaborators like Create & Cultivate, who invited us to participate in their recent Live Your Adventure speaker series. We’ve also forged new alliances with likeminded brands and interviewees. A few stand outs include growing our clientele for our subsidiary business CONNECT(ED)ITORIAL, celebrating an incredible profile on Forbes, and catering to our inner travel-bug in our partnership abroad with Away.
In building on our goals from year three, our mission has and will continue to focus on humanizing the way we look at style and its ever-growing presence in our lives. So as we celebrate another year of storytelling, I’m reminded that not only is it important to celebrate the new but reflect on what’s remained constant. And perhaps the most important constant is you, our dear reader, for standing by us from day one… and if this happens to be your day one or if you’re newer to our site, welcome! I personally invite you to stick around for a while. We’ve got big plans, and we can’t wait to have you along on this crazy, wonderful, and awe-inspiring journey.
Cheers to another year of storytelling with style.
