Hi! I'm Stephanie Mark. I'm the co-founder and Head of Business Development at Coveteur, a leading online destination for all things fashion, lifestyle and culture. We are unique in that we give a luxurious, behind-the-scenes look into these topics. 

I graduated from Parsons here in NYC with a focus in Fashion Marketing and had the chance to intern with Kate Lanphear, Style Director at ELLE. I then went on to assist celebrity stylists Leslie Fremar and Annabel Tollman with dressing and accessorizing their A-list clientele. Some of the clients were Michelle Williams, Charlize Theron and Julianne Moore, so was pretty cool! 

My experience in fashion and celebrity styling combined with the fast rise of personal blogging and social media inspired me to launch Coveteur in 2011. I distinguished the brand's identity by offering visitors behind-the-scenes look at homes and closets of today’s most popular influencers, celebrities and tastemakers.

Some fun facts about me are that I recently moved the Coveteur headquarters from my hometown of Toronto to New York City. Also, Coveteur released our first book in October called The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style.

Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Wednesday, January 18th at 2pm ET.

      My favorite thing about working in new media and fashion are all the interesting people I get to meet and the ideas we get to bring to life. Everyone in this space is really open to innovation and trying new ways to speak with their audiences that we have the opportunity to do a lot of cool stuff! The biggest challenge would be accepting that not everything you try will work.

      Thank you! The first step was deciding on an agent and publisher. After that we started to fly all around the world to shoot all of our content. Once the book was all put together and the copy was in we started planning the book tour. The best part of that was being able to meet and talk with our readers

      It sounds cliche but everyone we work with is really lovely. Being in someone's home is personal but it also means the talent is more comfortable and open

      Starting your own company comes with a ton of hardships. Since Coveteur started as a passion project I didn't really think about all the challenges and that made a huge difference because it seemed less daunting. The biggest hardship would be doubting yourself and not moving forward

    Do you get annoyed when people make fun of other people for having their own style, or not wearing designer clothes? I feel like society has gotten better about allowing people to dress like they want, but I'm curious to hear what you think.

      Coveteur was founded on celebrating people's personal style. I am definitely against people being made fun of for expressing themselves through their clothing or not wearing head to toe designer.

      Hi Sarah! There are tons of places to shop. I personally love ASOS. They have really cool stuff for not a lot of money. Zara for me is always a go to as well and it's super on trend. Otherwise vintage stores and sites like The Real Real can always bring some good finds!

      Really defining your personal style has been great advice. It makes you more aware of falling into the trap of buying into every trend and also makes shopping a lot easier since you know what you are looking for and what works!

      I may not be the best in the love department but I can say it's important to have confidence in yourself, both while looking for love and going through a break up. Starting a company (or being very dedicated to your job) can make relationships hard. It is important to date someone who shares that type of lifestyle and is understanding about long hours, work travel, etc. Plus- they should be supporting you no matter what!

      Thank you! The most important thing is to put yourself out there to make connections and network. Interning is really valuable for this. You are meeting tons of people and also making friendships with people that you will go on your journey with. Not being shy in asking for advice is important too
