Guest Speakers

April Roomet - Celebrity Stylist April Roomet is a celebrity stylist and costume designer in Los Angeles. She began her career modeling in New York which naturally turned into time on the silver screen, working as an extra on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air with Will Smith. But what continued to stand out about Roomet was her style. Roomet's big break came working with well-known hip-hop names, such as Dr. Dre, Eminem and Snoop Dog. A new career was born. Music has always been her biggest influence which makes sense that Roomet ultimately evolved into working with musicians. With over 20 years experience as a stylist, she continues to draw inspiration from music, vintage fashion, and her son.

Heather Roma - Founder, The Westside Collective Heather is the president and founder of The Westside Collective mobile boutique. Obsessed with the brands she had been consulting with at her company Westside Consulting, Heather wanted to showcase all her favorites under one roof. Focusing on handmade items mostly made in California, The Westside Collective Truck was born (it's actually a California Cool turquoise camper where there's always a pitched Teepee outside!) Today she continues to consult for leading fashion clothing and accessory brands while curating 'the best of' artisan products online at The Westside Collective and in her mobile fashion truck that can be spotted from Topanga to Venice to Coachella.

Sica Schmitz - Founder, Bead & Reel Fashion has always been one of Sica's greatest joys. Her first job out of college was as a personal shopper at Nordstrom which led to her 8-year career in Costume Design for film and television, working on the ABC hit show Castle. However, even in Hollywood, she had a hard time finding beautiful clothing that met with her vegan and humanitarian values. She decided to create an on-line boutique that brought together like-minded brands for an easy, ethical one-stop shop. Since launching Bead & Reel in 2014, she has become a regular speaker, writer, and sustainable stylist. She is the fashion editor for The Ethical Style Journal and Vilda Magazine, and a member of EcoSessions LA and Fair Trade LA organizations.
