Before opening TenOverSix, the NYU graduate and Parsons School of Design alum worked at Theory, where she launched her own line of shoes and handbags before becoming a fashion stylist for celebs like Adele and Taylor Swift. Cole's impeccable taste also extends to designing interiors for such high-profile clients as The Joule Hotel, Midnight Rambler Bar, Americano, and Weekend Coffee (of which she's co-owner) in Dallas, and Olive & June Salon in Beverly Hills. "I love the curating of the space, from the music to what you're smelling and drinking and everything that you are interfacing with as a consumer," says Cole, who lives in South Austin with her husband and two children, including a newborn. When she's not traveling to New York, Paris, or LA, searching for the right fashion "with an Austin slant," Cole has been finding her way around her new home city. She loves to eat at the bar at Jeffrey's, the classic Austin restaurant owned by McGuire; her preferred weekend uniform of vintage 501s, a tee, and high-tops fits right in the with the local aesthetic. "Your eye changes with every environment living in different cities and being exposed to new cultures and style, and the Austin woman is more nonchalant and classic, a very elegant way of dressing." 524 N.
