My Journey & Inspiration

Get to know Me

M y transition started years ago, I always valued the importance and the impact of reinventing and effectively building my personal look as a means to influence my whole image and soon realized that this is my true calling. Soon this became a daily aspect of my routine, I would find myself helping strangers in retail stores and thrift shops with their fashion choices. I also created various branding concepts for friends, businesses, entrepreneurs and anyone in between. The real turning point in my career was when my friends and family kept asking me for shopping and styling advice. That was the sign that I needed to make the career change from nursing to being a full time Image Incubator. To start my dream career, I chose to study Fashion Styling & Image Consulting at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC and achieved my title as a certified Image Consultant. I haven’t looked back since and I am happier than ever.

Reviews & Recognition

What Lola said about Mikara

Mikara is simply amazing! She was more like a granted wish because I met her right at my ‘wardrobe breaking point’ and needed some help with coordinating. Mikara was very patient, she met with me and asked me all the right questions. She was open to find out what look I wanted to cultivate, but she also gave some awesome pointers. She dressed me for a ‘Girls Night Out’ event and made me feel like a million bucks. Mikara has unleashed the wardrobe enthusiast in me and now I find myself shopping & dressing like Mikara would have me! Thank you Mikara!!! Springfield, NJ- 5 stars
