our story

Meet Our Founder

Michelle T. Sterling

Hi, I’m Michelle Sterling. I founded Global Image Group in 2002 after starting my professional career as an M&A investment banker out of college. Always struggling to fit in and be recognized in my youth, it wasn’t until I turned 16 that I realized the real power of clothing. It wasn’t until I went to Wellesley College and socialized with the international scene that I develop my own authentic style. And it wasn’t until I became an investment banker that I developed confidence, competence, and credibility by learning how to manage perception, dress, and communicate to project professional presence. Today I’m a multiple award-winning, internationally recognized train-the-trainer, executive image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper. Certified in appearance, behavior, and communication as a soft skill performance coach, I can help you develop your personal brand identity through image, etiquette, and communication to level up your authority and credibility, self-confidence, and self-competence, to be recognized as a leader which will strategically transform your self-image and life from the inside out. As Chief Executive Image Consultant and Virtual Stylist of Global Image Group, executive men and women from tech to finance, as well as ambitious entrepreneurs and work from home professionals engage my services due to my client-focused, results-driven, systematic approach to consulting and wardrobing. Recently mentioned in the Huffington Post for my next-level wardrobe capsule approach to styling professionals, you can shop the looks here. I serve clients on-location in New York, DC, San Francisco, Fort Lauderdale, London, Paris, and Dubai, as well as worldwide virtually styling and soft skill coaching online.

…I reached out to Michelle again 8 years later in 2019. It was definitely worth my time and money to spend 1.5 days with her in New York to refresh and replenish my wardrobe. Since our last session 2 years ago, I have worked with her using the SHOP + SHIP + STYLE virtual styling service to add new items to my wardrobe as well as beach vacation clothes.  As always, I love what she picks for me… Read more “Brent’s Testimonial”

…Since then, we moved to the L.A. area. And she’s done the same process for me in L.A. and Orange County, maneuvering through my weight changes from size 12 to 2 and stabilizing at size 8/10…difficult for us to sync up our schedules, so she started working with me virtually. I’ve been using her SHOP+SHIP+STYLE virtual styling service for the last 5 years to fill in the gaps in my wardrobe and for vacations.  I did try Nordstrom’s Trunk Club for a bit, but I canceled it… Read more “Katie’s Testimonial”

Working with Michelle is definitely an investment, but a good one…the reason why I continue to work with her is because I only get compliments when I’m wearing the outfits that SHE picks. It’s been 3 years since my first consultation with her and I scheduled a follow-up half-day personal shopping session with her because who doesn’t like compliments? I think I’ll schedule a virtual closet edit with her next. Read more “Karen’s Testimonial”

Michelle is really great with colors. I definitely recommend getting a personal style analysis with her to review your colors. In fact she’s so good with color she help me defined the color scheme of my home, the color scheme of my business brand identity, as well as my best colors for my own personal brand. She put colors together in my wardrobe that I would’ve never put together, but it looks great! Read more “David’s Testimonial”

Going through an online closet edit and virtual wardrobe styling session with Michelle was cathartic. She helped decide which items I should release to simplify my wardrobe and my life…I had a $2000 budget for clothes shopping, however we only spent $1350. Michelle was amazing about selecting stylish clothes that made me look current and put together within my budget. Read more “Michelle’s Testimonial”
