Throughout her Catholic grade school years, a plaid skirt and a white blouse with a Peter Pan collar defined Christina Juarez’s wardrobe during the day. But at home and after school, her maximalist fashion sense started to show through. Her Italian-American parents also influenced her style. “My mom is 101, and she is still always dressed up — her hair and nails done, her jewelry on, and a cute little outfit,” Juarez says. “When I was growing up, my dad was kind of a clotheshorse and always well-dressed in beautiful suits, ties and shoes.” Her unique brand of maximalism, however, comes directly from her entrepreneurial spirit and her small business Christina Juarez & Company, a high-level luxury goods consultancy, which helps interior designers, such as Nicole Fuller Interiors, and home design brands, including Hector Finch Lighting, with everything from business development to full-scale communications strategies, special event production, social media content creation and management and much more.
