Elisa Goodkind & Lily Mandelbaum of StyleLikeU and The What's Underneath Project

Jul 17, 2017, 10:13 PM

Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum are the co-founders of StyleLikeU, a company that creates the documentary-style video series “What’s Underneath” that explores how style is not about trends, money, or presenting a facade of photoshopped perfection. Rather, true style is the result of radical self-acceptance.

In this episode, Elisa and Lily — who are mother and daughter — share how and why they started StyleLikeU in 2009, and how it has evolved from an idea to a video series that has been viewed over 35 million times, and from a book to a movement. Today, Elisa and Lily have interviewed hundreds of people about their unique perspectives on style and identity — a perspective that is quite different from the one portrayed by today’s fashion industry and the media.

You can watch the video series on YouTube, buy the book ‘True Style is What’s Underneath — The Self-Acceptance Revolution’, and follow the project on Instagram.
