FirstSeven is a corporate training firm founded by three fashion industry veterans with a passion for empowering professionals to improve their performance by upgrading their image.

Faith Rim, Lili Morton and Stacy Gatto met while working at a personal styling/e-commerce start-up. Over the past four years they’ve worked with hundreds of clients across the country guiding them through the dynamics of wardrobe selection.

They found an overwhelming demand for assistance with workwear. Whether it was a big interview, potential promotion, mother returning to the workplace, an important presentation or simply upping their profile at the office, hundreds of clients relied on their expertise to navigate and propel them through the various stages in their careers. 

These clients were on to something! They realized what a significant role their appearance played at the office - both from their personal perceptions and those of their colleagues.  

FAITH RIM With 12 years of experience in the corporate world, Faith has worked with top tier supply chain & strategy groups across the nation in both the telecommunications and fashion industries. It was during her time in the corporate sector that she decided to step out and become a Certified Image Consultant and Personal Styling Strategist. Over the last four years, Faith has developed long-lasting client relationships and thoroughly enjoys helping them acquire that “present your best self” attitude in their workplace and in life. She is surrounded by a supportive husband, Q,  and three loving (and active!) little people: Alexandra, Benjamin and Nicoletta. Faith lives in NJ and loves to travel, enjoys DIYing and would be lost without Pinterest.

LILI MORTON Lili hails from the shores of Lake Erie in northwestern Pennsylvania and brings more than 10 years of business and fashion experience to FIRSTSEVEN. She studied marketing and fashion merchandising at Michigan State University (Go Spartans!) and proceeded to work in a variety of roles before quickly realizing her strengths in E-commerce sales, marketing, customer relations and, of course, styling. Lili is passionate about accentuating the role of clothing and style in helping others get that promotion, close the sale, build confidence and simply feel good about themselves. In addition to styling, Lili is a volunteer for Make-A-Wish, a fitness fanatic (Tracy Anderson Method is her go-to) and a dog lover (with a  weakness for Corgis).

It’s not just about fashion. Faith is skilled at merging your inner attitudes and your outer appearance in a way that reflects your most authentic self. She understands that embracing who you truly are internally and externally is a strong self-esteem boost and destiny builder.

Lili’s styling service is excellent. She pushes my fashion sense forward with my work wardrobe while still selecting items that are individualized to my taste, lifestyle, and budget. Her choices have made styling my work wardrobe so much easier. I am less hurried in the morning. I feel confident in what I am wearing, and that translates into my approach to the day - feeling confident means I am more confident. Plus, the clothes have such pizzazz! It’s a great feeling.

Being lucky enough to have Stacy style me for the past couple of years has been a true blessing to my closet and an absolute pleasure. The second I know I have an event coming up or a job change, she is the first person I reach out to. I have always loved fashion, but having her as my stylist has completely elevated my wardrobe to another level. She has helped me take more risks, discover designers I previously didn’t think I could wear, and has earned me constant compliments. I simply can’t imagine dressing myself after working with her!
