Nancy has always loved fashion. She grew up as the "go-to" fashion expert for her mother and sisters as well as her friends. Even as a teenager, her favorite reads were Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.
Nancy graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Merchandising and Fashion Promotion. From there it was off to Texas and The Limited where she got her first taste of management. She continued to work her way up the corporate ladder and manage many different departments at Saks, Barneys and Neiman Marcus. She went through the Executive Training Program at Neimans and became an assistant buyer for Escada, Armani and Donna Karan. After Neimans, it was back to Saks Fifth Avenue for a final management stint as the Director of the Fifth Avenue Club, Saks' personal Shopping service. She was hooked. Personal shopping combined her love of wardrobing with organizing not only people's wardrobes, but their lifestyles and needs. She was bitten with an entrepreneurial bug and the rest is history.
Nancy is a sought after speaker for Fortune 100 corporations, organizations and networking groups on dressing fashionably and appropriately. She is also a fashion advice columnist, most recently featured in Dallas Child and Fort Worth Child. You can view her up-to-the-minute trends and fashion advice on her Facebook page.
Nancy also volunteers monthly for Attitudes and Attire, an organization dedicated to styling and outfitting economically disadvantaged women for workplace situations.
For many people, home is where the heart is; for Ashley, her heart is color coordinated and neatly placed in her closet. From an early age, she has been able to express her identity through her wardrobe. With experience and natural habit, Ashley has developed a passion for helping others find their identity through their personal wardrobes.
Ashley studied Fashion Merchandising and International Business at the University of North Texas in Denton. She was fortunate to have the opportunity to expand her knowledge of the industry through hands-on experience at the University of the Arts in Florence, Italy as well as working with Fossil and Target International Sourcing centers in Hong Kong.
Ashley has trained under Nancy Klompus since January of 2013 and channeled her passion for personal wardrobe styling into a profession. She works with men and women of all ages specializing in young professionals to develop their new work force wardrobe, as well as seasoned professionals who are ready for a fresh feeling in their closets. Ashley is particularly good with teenagers who are having trouble distinguishing between what their peers have dubbed as "trending" in comparison to what works best with their individual figure and personal style.
A word from Ashley:
"When one goes through the routine of getting dressed, whether for work, a Saturday afternoon with friends or a special occasion, my goal is for every one of my clients to have a continuous feeling of simplicity, satisfaction and confidence in their wardrobe selection. Together let's define your style DNA and show it off to the world!"
