In addition to stellar service and a comprehensive consultation, Melissa and Tracey value dynamic range in their skillset, attending regular trainings and seminars in the most cutting-edge styles and innovative techniques. Their trainings take them all over New England, including the capitol of fashion and style.... NYC!
