Lenà Burns worked as a television news reporter and anchor for 20 years. She also has a career on the other side of the camera in public relations with 10 years’ experience styling and consulting clients on their professional wardrobes. One employer, a mayor in a top 10 U. S. City, was named Best-Dressed Politician.
Today, Lenà works with individuals on their personal style, specializing in high-profile clients who require polished on- and off-duty looks. Her goal is to a create wearable, easy, put-together looks that feel true to her clients.
Lena’s go-to wardrobe piece is a basic black sheath dress in a knit fabric. “Simple, versatile and flattering. It’s been my go-to for years.” Whether she pairs it with sky-high heels for a sexy look, or kicks and a jean jacket for running around on the weekends, it “always works.”

Last year I had the monumental task of picking a “mother-of-the-groom” dress for my son’s wedding. I wanted it to be perfect, but found myself gravitating toward traditional dresses and falling into the predictable pattern of what everyone else did because it was safe. Lená encouraged me to think outside the box and try non-traditional but completely appropriate dresses. With Lená’s encouragement I realized personal style is just that, personal. I loved going against the grain and picking something that made me feel beautiful and elegant.
Lena was an absolute professional and a joy to work with as a consultant and stylist for my engagement and wedding photos. Her attention to detail — from flower colors to how the fabric of my dress flowed — was beyond all of my expectations, and her suggestions for poses, accessories, hair, etc were spot-on and resulted in truly stunning photos. Involving her in our photography process was one of the best decisions we made!
Lenà helped me select an outfit for a recent job interview. After being in the military for 10 years and having a baby three months prior, choosing an outfit that was flattering and professional was not easy. She was able to help me nail down the perfect suit, but also shoes and simple accessories. The confidence she gave me helped me land a job just a week after the interview. Thank you, Lenà and DC Style Factory!
What a fantastic experience. When I arrived I was blown away at how organized the process was. You feel like you are someone really important. As we tried different outfits and combinations, Lená would walk me through all of the different ways I could wear each piece. Being educated through this process has been priceless, and I look forward to shopping again for fall/winter. I would highly recommend DC Style Factory. The work they do is priceless to those of us who are style-challenged.
