Personal Style:

Timeless. “I look at what my father wore in the 1980s and what my grandfather wore in the 1950s. Quality pieces never really go out of style. In fact, I wear a lot of things inherited from my dad [the late Dennis Slatkin]. I love classic, elegant pieces.”

Style Tip:

Don’t listen to other people’s fashion advice. Trust yourself. You know what you look and feel good in.

Fashion Debut:

 “I’ve loved clothes all my life. The bug really bit me when I was involved in a fashion shoot at age 10. I loved the accessories they put on me; I still love accessories: pocket squares, cufflinks, studs. My favorite item of clothing, though, is beautiful sweaters.”
