{My Mother, My Muse} Joan Miller Kohlberg

FOF, Joan Miller Kohlberg, an addiction counselor, consultant to Digi-Block, and partner in Miller Industrial Properties, is super stylish. A near-fatal car accident left her healing throughout her twenties, yet she cant help but remember she was wearing Halston the night of the crash. She describes her style as “classic, modern and sexy,” influenced most by her greatest fashion role model, her mother.

“This is a photograph of my mother, PK, walking through the old city of Jerusalem in the 1960’s.  It looks like it’s jumping off the pages of Vogue today. My mother is extremely chic; people always recognized her as a style icon wherever she went. I always admired her innate style growing up as a kid, and even now I still love her style, it’s current and classic at the same time. Always iconic, my mother intrigued and fascinated me over the years, enabling me to incorporate her unique style with my own tastes and sensibilities. When she left for her honeymoon, she wore a Charles James suit—remember those days when you dressed up to go on your honeymoon?
