Caitlin Colling

Personal stylist; mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee

Personal stylist Caitlin Colling recently founded a monthly empowerment workshop at Mending Hearts, a residential center for women with mental illness and substance abuse issues. Here, Colling advises attendees on both a stylistic and spiritual level, by helping them through the process of reentering the professional work force. Disregarding any preconceptions of the perfect size, style, or silhouette, Colling helps them gain confidence through the transformative power of fashion. Whether she’s assembling outfits to wear on a job interview or conducting “Makeup 101” classes, Colling is helping women foster a renewed sense of self worth. “If they can see a new vision of themselves, it will elevate them beyond their current expectations,” says Colling. She is also a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.
