Isadora Hu

Where are you from?
Los Angeles, CA

How did you get to DSTLD?
I always knew that I wanted to be in the fashion industry; however, more along the business/operations side of things. I landed a job at BCBG Corporate working as the Executive Assistant to the Senior Vice President right out of college, and also worked at as an Assistant Buyer. I moved to San Francisco wanting a change from the Los Angeles lifestyle and worked at Gump’s (a 100+ year old department store), as an Assistant Merchandiser in the E-commerce/Catalog department. I realized I missed LA and decided to move back, and I applied at DSTLD (then 20jeans) and got hired the week I was back in LA and have been with DSTLD ever since!  

What’s your role at DSTLD?
I currently help run the day-to-day business operations; which range from Finance, Accounting, HR, logistics, and Marketing.  

Describe your personal style or name one piece that defines you.
I would describe my personal style as classic with an edge. I am almost always in black and I like to wear things that are not trendy and can be worn for years. My favorite piece would be a little black dress worn with booties.

What’s your favorite trend right now?
My current favorite trend is the moto jacket. It has been a popular staple for years and it is pretty versatile where you can dress it up or down with anything.

What are your favorite DSTLD products?
My favorite DSTLD products are the high waisted coated black jeans and the mid-rise black ripped skinny jeans.

How does DSTLD’s idea of fewer, better things play into your daily life?
I keep my style simple, so I will just throw on a black dress or a tank with skinny jeans.

Who’s your style inspiration right now?
My current style inspiration is model Miranda Kerr. She always looks polished and put together with edgy pieces.

What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I like to do active things; I currently love early morning hiking.

What’s your favorite LA spot?
My favorite spot in LA is a bar called Las Perlas; the vibe is chill and they always have great music or live bands playing.

What inspires you?
Just being around positive family and friends keeps me inspired and motivated. I want to do good for myself as well as for my friends/family to make them proud of the person I am becoming.

Working at a fashion-tech startup is a recipe for a busy lifestyle. How do you keep things stress-free and streamlined?
I am definitely a workaholic and I learned to keep all aspects of your life balanced. Most importantly, you need to keep yourself healthy and focused, so I try to work out at least 4x a week. I also love to go to dinners with friends just to keep in touch with people as well as keep my mind off of my busy work life.

What are your three daily essentials?
My 3 daily essentials are coffee, music, and plenty of water!
