Fashion entrepreneur Gab Waller on having the confidence to push through rejection and how to develop deep relationships with clients.
In this special Self Care Sundays mini-series produced by Studio Offline and in partnership with Estée Lauder, host Alison Rice sits down with some of the brand’s inspiring ambassadors and friends to have an honest conversation about their careers, businesses, life on the other side of the filter, fashion, beauty and… confidence.
What does confidence really mean to women and what does having it help us to achieve?
The topic and series celebrates Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation, a product that allows women to wear confidence and feel empowered to take on the day.
Alison’s next guest is personal shopper to the stars and fashion entrepreneur, Gab Waller. She got her big break sourcing and “Old Celine” coat for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in 2018, and hasn’t looked back. She now has a team of six helping her to respond to hundreds of personal shopping requests each day.
In this episode, Gab opens up about what confidence means to her, how she’s seen fashion change a woman’s perception of herself, her breakthrough moment, why it’s so important to push through rejection, how she’s thinking about scaling her business, building her support team, how to develop deep relationships with clients and brands, the lessons she’s learnt the hard way, the importance of discretion in her business and how she’s thinking about circularity in our need-it-now consumer culture.
