Hard to believe, a parking lot right outside the front door. Rachel Schwartzmann knows from experience: here in New York’s Brooklyn district, this is a rarity. The California native has been living in the Big Apple since she was eleven years old. From her first teens in Queens to her first home in the trendy Park Slope neighbourhood of Brooklyn, New York is her home. She knows the rhythm of the city, understands its inhabitants, appreciates the openness of their homeland and knows how to harness the energy of the metropolis: Rachel Schwartzmann, founder and CEO of “The Style Line”, loves the pace that you set in New York. She, too, is always one step ahead of the others. A woman who founds, blogs, leads, organises, discovers and is constantly on the move – always looking for what constitutes good style.
