Melissa Polo Landau is part of the revolution of fashion experts who are co-mingling styling with trailblazing ways of leveling up a client’s social media and networking presence. Using innovative marketing techniques and a knowledgeable fashion background in the industry, she has become the go-to leading authority who individuals turn to when they want a leg up in the workforce and beyond.

An overall media expert in marketing, social media, and brand identity, she proves that you don’t need to be a celebrity to need a stylist. Known as “The Closet Therapist,” she has taken years to hone her craft of curating looks for women and men in need of a wardrobe update along with an equal standout presence for networking online and IRL. Clients end up looking fantastic at board meetings and work seminars just as equally as finding a fresh and bold new look on Instagram, TikTok and Facebook.

Through her keen techniques and with an eye for what is en vogue, she takes clothes off the rack and from the runway to develop selects for clients across the east coast. From New Jersey to Long Island and up to Connecticut, she sets out to give those searching for ways to build confidence while looking good a new meaning. Landau’s bold approach is refreshing and helps everyone she serves gain a personal style that is meaningful, “ I noticed a lack of creativity in the professional space for high-end imagery. In a world where online presence is essential to building and maintaining a strong brand, it is my goal to set our clients apart from competitors.”

She breaks down the misconception that you need to be famous to need a fashion stylist. It can be a CEO of a company to a mom looking to start over with a new look and she begins a new career in real estate. And they all leave a session with Landau with what she describes as a “superpower.”
