Our Founder and CEO
Born and raised in the UK, our founder and CEO, Louisa Gabriel, moved to the US after graduating from the University of Luton with a B.A (Hons) in Psychology with Business Studies. After spending many years working in non-profit business management and communications Louisa decided to pursue a long-time dream of working in fashion styling and enrolled at The Fashion Stylist Institute in California, where she obtained her certifications in Image Consulting and Fashion Styling.
Following her graduation from FSI, Louisa launched her own personal styling business, The Style Clinic, in 2010. While building her business and client base she became a volunteer stylist for Dress For Success, and also volunteered for the breast cancer charity, All 4 One Alliance providing style advice and support to women post-mastectomy.
Since launching her personal styling business, Louisa has built a strong client base both in the UK and the US working with people from all walks of life, including CEO's, local media celebrities, graduates, and people of all ages and status looking to improve their image. Her approach to styling has a strong psychological base and she uses her skills to help her clients overcome any self-esteem and confidence issues they may have and become the best versions of themselves.
In 2014 Louisa began training future stylists and providing business coaching and mentoring to people starting their own styling business. This led to the development of her online certificate programs and the launch of The Style Academy International in 2017. Through the online academy, she provides training, support, and guidance to people throughout the world who dream of a career in styling.
In 2019, Louisa was awarded a Certificate in Female Entrepreneurship through Cornell University and also published her first book, The Little Black Book of Style Secrets, which is available through Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
