      Carale Bowe started tailoring his own clothes more than 10 years ago when he was a realtor and needed to wear nicer clothes that fit properly. He took one of his dress shirts to a local tailor and while watching her pin it thought, “Hmm...I think I could do that”. He decided to learn everything he could about clothing alterations not just for himself, but for everyone around him as well. Fast forward to now, Carale runs a successful clothing alteration YouTube channel, Stylish D, and has completely transformed his family’s entire wardrobe.
