About Us

woman and shoesHello & Welcome! 

My name is Janelle — the owner and founder of Sasha Bowman Personal Shopping & Image Consulting, LLC — and an accountant turned stylist! 

The world of accounting and auditing, though secure, made me hate waking up every morning to go to work. I knew something had to be done.

 

Background

In late 2005/early 2006 I decided to open a personal shopping and image consulting company based around my strengths in business, passion for fashion & shopping, and natural affinity to connect with people.

I started by turning contacts from the multi-national investment company where I worked into business clients and walking testimonials.

Here at Sasha Bowman Personal Shopping & Image Consulting, LLC there’s a burning passion for providing the tools and services that allow our clients to present the best version of themselves to the world everyday!

 

Education

Before earning my first professional certification, the passion and the journey all started at a traditional university.  I hold a Bachelor’s of Business Administration (B.B.A) with a major in accounting and minor in Finance from the University of Miami (Coral Gables, FL).

I currently hold certifications as a:

  • Certified Fashion Stylist (CFS), 
  • Certified Image Consulting (CIC), and 
  • Certified Wardrobe Stylist (CWS), 

from the prestigious Gillian Armour Fashion Stylist Institute (San Francisco, CA) who’s CEO, Gillian Armour, CIP has over 30 years of experience in all facets of the fashion industry.  Her remarkable trainings are among the most well respected in the image consulting community.  

To keep up with demand and the constantly changing needs of my clients, I study & earn additional expertise in areas affecting my clients each year.

 

Professional Associations

Proud Professional Member of the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI), which is one of the most well recognized and respected professional organizations in the image consultant community worldwide.  They have chapters globally, skills training, annual conferences, and certification treks to allow their members to be the best of the best in the constantly changing world today.
