  Wendy Bryant Gow   Founder and CEO
 

Wendy Bryant Gow, Founder & CEO

With over thirty years of experience in the image and fashion industry, Lily Winston is one of the South’s foremost authorities on image and brand consulting, wardrobe styling and professional organizing. Over the years, by merging Southern gentility with an international influence, founder and CEO Wendy Bryant Gow has honed a discerning style and established a first-rate reputation in her industry. As the success of her image consulting business grew, Wendy developed a team of highly qualified consultants offering various attributes and backgrounds in order to meet her clienteles' particular needs.

In 2001, Lily Winston strategically relocated their headquarters to the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill region known as the Triangle, seeing the area's significant potential for growth in the fashion and image arena. In this North Carolina RTP region with such a strong, diverse community of students and professionals, there is much to be gained in transforming the Triangle’s image towards one matching its esteemed global, educational, and metropolitan position.

Client Testimonials

For the first time in my life, I realize wearing clothes which I genuinely love really boosts my confidence and performance in business.

"I retained Wendy to update my professionally conservative, subdued and boring Japanese style to a more sophisticated Western direction. It has been a truly eye-opening experience, and the impact completely exceeded my expectations. My wife and I have become big fans and supporters of Wendy. Her image and style advice have transformed my portfolio of clothes, shoes and accessories to better reflect my personal and professional personality and accomplishments. Through our sessions and conversations over the past year, my wife and I have learned a great deal about fashion trends and classic styles, including what works best for me and why.

For the first time in my life, I realize wearing clothes which I genuinely love really boosts my confidence and performance in business situations and happiness in my daily life. I receive lots of positive feedback - especially in Tokyo with clients, colleagues, family and friends since working with Wendy. The ROI was a significant plus for me. Wendy is the consummate professional, supportive and a pleasure to work with! I strongly recommend her!"

Everyone left the workshop feeling confident with some new tricks for looking, feeling, and acting their best.

“We wanted to hold a special and unique training session for our large HR Service Center team who had been through a lot of change over the past year.  We wanted it to be informative, educational, fun and personal.  We worked with Wendy to design a workshop covering business etiquette, first impressions and professional image. 

The full-day workshop was a great success as it hit all the points we were looking for.  Everyone learned some great etiquette techniques for a wide variety of business situations ranging from the office environment to entertaining situations.  Everyone learned first impression tips and techniques for meeting and working with a wide range of employees and customers.  And we learned the real but often overlooked value of professional image as Wendy and her team taught useful techniques for looking your best for appearance, hair, makeup for the women, and skin care for all. 

Wendy and her team even completed a number of mini-makeovers to show how small changes and techniques can build self-confidence.  Everyone left the workshop feeling confident with some new tricks for looking, feeling, and acting their best.  It was a great day and a great reward for the team.”

Completely changed my appearance

"Your work with me on my wardrobe has completely changed my appearance and substantially increased my self-confidence! The pieces that you helped me find and purchase were the foundation for a new wardrobe and a new look that has served me very well over the past few months. With your inspiration, I gutted my closet and started afresh and now I have a much less packed closet but, ironically, much more to wear! Most days I need to look fairly corporate but on my patient care days, I have ample options to look comfortable and approachable. It is nice to have both options!"
