  • “Michelle T. Sterling is truly the best image consultant and trainer there is in the industry. I registered for the online course since I was working in Corporate America at the time, however I had the opportunity to attend the Corporate Image Consultant training program in New York and see her work with a paying male client. From helping her pick outfits, to observing how she speaks to her clients, to learning how to deal with difficult sales associates, she’s the best! No wonder the client flew in from Detroit to meet with her, paid her $5000 for 1.5 days of her time, and he's a repeat client! I was there when he said hiring her for personal shopping services is a good use of his time and money — that he would spend hours online shopping just to get frustrated with incorrect colors, styles, fit, and dealing with returns. I’m Belgium - Swiss. I have high standards and so do her clients. Choose Sterling Style Academy.”

  • "The Sterling Style Academy online course is an intensive and very detailed program that provided me with more information then I could have imagined. I am very happy I decided to take the course with you rather than waste my money on some cheaper image consultant course because I am serious about turning this into a business. I can't thank you enough for all your guidance, support, and encouragement. You made my day everyday during this pandemic. I hope to be as good of an image consultant as you, Michelle T. Sterling, one day and make you proud. I already took a Fashion Styling course from a well known fashion institution in New York that was a complete waste of time and money. But with this course I am learning so much more and don’t feel like I’m wasting my money or my time. During the online course I learned how GCC Arab traditional dress for men and women can be perceived according to it’s design details and the image an individual projects. I feel like I'm taking a course with a Saudi but to American educational standards. I'm so grateful you taught me how to work with Saudi clients while I'm living in NY."

  • "I came to Sterling Style Academy having taken another course in India that truly missed the mark and disappointed me. In just 7 days with the Sterling Style Academy in Milan, I became a certified image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper, but I never expected to be constantly mentored, encouraged, and supported since the day I graduated in October 2018 until now. In 7 days, I learned what people study in India in six months to one year. I not only learned a lot of theory and how to apply the information to work with Indian clients, I also learned from someone who has also been my business mentor with so much industry knowledge and client expertise. There have been times when I wanted to give up, but Michelle T. Sterling has always been there to encourage me to keep going. This industry takes persistence, practice, and patience. I know I have the passion, superior training and knowledge, but she's also taught me how to become an entrepreneur. It was definitely worth the training investment."

  • "This course was truly amazing and exceeded my expectations! From it's advanced level of curriculum to the instructor's ability to assess and manage my adult learning process, Michelle T. Sterling truly understands how to build a world-class and real-world image consultant and personal stylist training program that doesn't miss any details! She's really intelligent, business savvy, an amazing instructor, and a talented coach. I love that she's so knowledgable of the Latin culture and speaks Spanish! Her step-by-step approach to training is intense and rigorous. However, now I feel confident that I've learned how to give my clients the best image consultations. With all the clients that will be coming to my med spa, I will be able to use what I learned and charge for consultations. Feeling truly grateful. Thank you so much. Look no further. I did all the research for you. This truly is the best image consultant training and personal stylist course out there and definitely in New York. "
