Known for her personal style, Zintrise believes that one’s physical style should be a reflecting of strength, beauty, and self-confidence. She takes pleasure in helping people reach their full “glory” potential by pointing out that true beauty starts from the inside and it translated out. She takes her passion a step further by offering personal shopping, closet editing, and style consultations for any event from weddings to everyday casual wear.

Zintrise has also worked with various non-profits over the past 20 years. She began working with other youth at the young age of 10 with her late father Rev. Zintrise has since relocated to Nashville, Tennessee and wants to bring all of her talents, experience, and passions together to make a difference through teaching self-perseverance and style. Zintrise Lawson, the Owner and Designer of the label says:

"I have a theory that once a person feels beautiful on the inside then it can be translated on the outside. I call this the “Glory Style” because it comes from an inner glow!"
