The Harvard Club of Austin invites the Austin Ivy+ community to join us for valuable tips on how to enhance your personal style and make a lasting impression in preparation for Austin's gala season. A professional stylist will guide you through the dos and don'ts of fashion, helping you discover your unique style. 


We recommend that you bring your gala outfits for our expert to give feedback and make recommendations. We look forward to seeing everyone's outfits and helping you level them up! We will have refreshments and a cash bar in a cocktail hour setting.


Non-Ivy+ guests of attendees are always welcome.


This event is organized by The SavIvy Austinite, events partner of the Harvard Club of Austin.


Speaker Bio: Ashley Batista



After working in the advertising world in Houston and late night bar tending downtown, I found myself paying for my first pair of designer shoes with an earned severance check just so I could have 5 seconds with Sarah Jessica Parker herself. That same day I knew I wanted to be a Professional Stylist. I now have almost 10 years of experience in the Fashion Industry, specializing in Retail, Wardrobe Consulting and Custom Clothing. I moved to Austin in 2016, after my husband and I got married, to open the Nordstrom in the Domain. I brought my knowledge of Women's designer clothing to the city of Austin and I learned my love of Men's fashion. After taking a small break in the fashion industry, in 2020, I came back strong in the Custom World. Working with the best fabric mills and learning the science behind fabrications, it's become a new passion for me. Now when I work with any of my client's, my goal is to have them reaching into their closets and know everything will give them that extra boost of confidence for the day.
