Fall Fashion with Priya Virmani

Fall Fashion with Priya Virmani

#HipNewJersey’s own Lisa Marie Latino had the pleasure of shopping with Garden State fashion guru, Priya Virmani! Virmani and Lisa took a trip to Bloomingdale’s Short Hills Mall, where Lisa was styled in the latest fall fashion trends! 

Priya Virmani is the founder of Privée by Priya , which is her style studio, created to help you build your ideal wardrobe. They also help with styling for special occasions, like birthdays, holidays, corporate events, photo shoots, etc. 

Virmani is a proud NJ resident who has always had a passion for fashion! When she was younger, she’d save up all of her allowance just to buy new clothes, and when she couldn’t, she’d take her sisters and create different looks mixing the clothes she had.

For most of Priya’s life, fashion was just a hobby. She went to college, got an MBA, got married, and had two daughters. She worked at a large bank for over ten years and then spent a few more years working in NYC. She also spent five years in Paris, the #1 place for great fashion! Today, she has turned her fashion hobby into a business!

As Priya styled Lisa, she focused not only on trends, but comfort and affordability as well. This is what being a “mixmaster” means. Bloomingdale’s is running the Mixmasters Campaign, where you mix high end brands with low end brands, as well as feminine fashion with comfortable fashion, i.e, a dress and sneakers!

Priya had Lisa rocking snake print, the “chunky sneaker” or “dad sneaker“, plaid, the “midi dress” and the “belt bag” which are all “in” right now and perfect for the season. As you can see, Priya really has an eye for fashion! What I love about her is the fact that she feels “anything goes” when it comes to fashion. She says fashion has no rules!

Make sure you contact Privée by Priya for your next big event. You’ll be sure to turn heads!

In Her Shoes: #MOMBOSS

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino attended Bloomingdale’s Short Hills’ In Her Shoes: #MOMBOSS event and spoke to some of the Garden State’s power moms.

“It was energizing to be here,” Priya Virmani, CEO of Privée by Priya, stated. “I loved being surrounded by all of these inspiring women and hearing their stories.”

“There were such good questions that were asked,” Mallika Malhotra, CEO of MikiFoto + Co, recalls. “People were feeling inspired, really connected, and also shared their stories.”

Cheldin Barlatt Rumer, CEO of This is It TV, raved about the event. She says that ten years ago, this event would not have even existed. “To be able to talk about the entrepreneurial spirit within mothers, it was just wonderful.”

What did Danielle Forte, CEO of 828 Clothing, take away from the panel? “Learning balance, and giving yourself some grace,” she says. “Live your dream and have fun.”

Latino also spoke with Co-Sponsor of “In Her Shoes,” Dina El Nabli. “No matter where you are in your parenting journey,” she stated, “we share the same struggles, and we are so inspired by the tips today.”
