Inside the Work Wardrobe of the Savviest Entrepreneur in NYC

Here at Who What Wear, we're champions of female-founded, -owned, and -operated businesses. After all, our company was founded by two fearless women. That’s why we’re launching Female Founded, a new editorial series that dives into the stories of those who launched their own businesses. Here, you’ll discover who these women are, what they've accomplished, and see how they style pieces from our own Who What Wear collection at Target.

Kori Hale has worn many hats. Before she launched CultureBanx, a savvy platform that delivers curated business-related news content to black professionals, she was an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, a TV producer at Bloomberg and CNBC and, most recently, a news anchor on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. With the kind of stacked résumé Hale touts, you'd imagine that as she gets dressed for work each day, it would resemble the strictly corporate uniform of the Wall Street variety. But whatever preconceived notions one might have about the work wardrobe of female professionals of Hale's caliber are quickly shattered upon meeting her in person.
