SYDNIE

Sydnie’s fashion journey started in the stroller.  The mall quickly became her second home as her mom would take her through the aisles of fabrics, colors, and patterns.  Inspiration continued into middle school and high school, getting voted “most fashionable” through her styling efforts.  Little did she know, this love for clothing would turn into something much greater.  Sydnie attended South Dakota State University where she obtained her degree in Apparel Merchandising and minors in Dance and Business.  During college, she led as president of Apparel Merchandising Association and interned for Christopher Straub (Project Runway designer).  After graduation, Sydnie and her husband moved to the Twin Cities to pursue new careers.  Sydnie began working for À La Mode as a stylist August of 2015.  In January 2021, Sydnie took a new role as owner of the business.  She is thrilled to continue to help clients grow in their personal styles and overall, confidence!

CLARE

Clare has had an eye for fashion ever since she was a little girl.  Playing dress-up in her mom and sisters' closets was an everyday occurrence and as she got older, her curiosity and passion only grew.  During college, Clare worked as a part-time stylist and also began sharing her interest and knowledge in fashion with followers online.  After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in journalism, Clare knew her ultimate goal was to work in the fashion industry.  After styling a few clients that reached out through social media, Clare fell in love with personal styling.  Her favorite part is watching the clients beam with confidence in their new attire.

 

Outside of work, Clare loves taking her dog for hikes, working out, hanging out with friends, and re-watching The Game of Thrones.       

VICTORIA

Victoria developed her love of fashion at a very young age. Growing up in New York, Victoria was involved in hundreds of theatre productions. While Victoria was on stage, her mother was a seamstress and costume designer. She taught Victoria about fine fabrics and quality craftsmanship. As a starving artist, Victoria could be found scouring the vintage markets and thrift stores where she could spot unique pieces to add to her collection.

 

While in her early 20's she worked in Advertising and had an opportunity to work on the global branding and marketing for Avon. This gave her a chance to learn about fashion and beauty from women located all over the world. Advertising by day and playing clubs with her band in New York's East Village by night, Victoria was getting to create interesting looks from street wear to stage wear. 

Victoria earned her license in Esthetics in 2008 and became a skin care professional and make up artist with a focus on organic skin care, bridal and special event makeup. Victoria's eye for fashion and style has kept her busy for years as she has styled for weddings, photo shoots, stage, and special events. 

Victoria moved with her family to Minnesota in 2014. She has recently been looking for a company where she can help others look and feel their best and she was thrilled to find À La Mode!

 

Outside of work, Victoria enjoys spending time with her husband and children, writing music with her husband/songwriting partner, drawing and painting, yoga and martial arts. Victoria finds a way to incorporate art and creativity to most all aspects of life.

SHANNON

Shannon’s interest for fashion began as a young child, when on a shopping trip with her mom, she pulled a dress off the rack and exclaimed, “ isn’t this da-dorable!” as only an energetic 3-year old can. She has always had a love of fashion, shopping and aesthetics. Shannon truly enjoys sorting through and selecting items to create an outfit that compliments a person’s personality, body-type and situation. She loves to help others showcase what they love about themselves so they can radiate confidence and feel most comfortable in their own skin. As a mom to young kids, she understands the unique changes that can happen to a woman’s body during the transformational time of pregnancy and early motherhood, and believes in loving and celebrating one’s body through every stage. 

 

Prior to becoming a stylist, Shannon worked in Marketing at a local medical device company, followed by a few years as an Account Supervisor at local advertising agency. She has experience managing client relationships, intaking client’s needs, and managing budget and timeline expectations. Combining her previous work experience, with her love of fashion, is the perfect fit for this phase of her life and career.
