Getting To Know Miguel Binet + Last-Minute Gift Ideas

The holidays are here and if you are still considering what to get the special man in your life, we’ve got the solution! Creative director, fashion wardrobe stylist, and CEO of One Confidence Image Consulting, Miguel Binet shares his journey to success and last-minute go-to gifts.

Born in the Dominican Republic, Miguel moved with his family to Miami at the age of two years old and immediately became fascinated by the fashion scene. In a city where first impressions are everything, Binet would go on to major in fashion merchandising, with a focus on styling and tailoring suits. Eventually, Miguel would start his own image consulting business, something that would come naturally to him after being a consultant his whole life without even knowing it. “My friends would always ask me to go to the mall and shop with them I didn’t even know it was possible to make a living doing so,” Binet shares.

Along the way, he has been inspired by fashion icons, such as the late Virgil Abloh, and Hedi Slimane because “as creative directors, they have very unique visions they carry to each brand or house they have worked with,” Binet shares. In the styling scene, he is inspired by Martha Luna of Style by Luna. Reflecting back on his journey, Binet shares his advice for aspiring creatives, “have a purpose and make your mistakes early in your career.” In his most recent work, Binet styled actor and on-air correspondent, Borja Voces. Landing Voces, as one of the best dressed for the Latin Grammy’s.
