Hi, I’m Jasmene. Welcome to The Boutique Teacher.

RETAIL STRATEGIST + FASHION ENTREPRENEUR

I’m a simple girl from Michigan who loves all things fashion, enjoys helping people, and is excited to grow my fashion empire. I’ve lived out my dreams of working in the New York City fashion industry, and climbed my way through the ranks of the competitive fashion and entertainment industries. As a former retail buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue and Tiffany & Co., I’ve seen the internal structure for creating and sustaining a profitable, successful, and influential fashion business. I’ve styled some of the most iconic Hip Hop moguls as seen on the pages of People, Forbes, Vibe, and XXL magazines. With over 10 years of experience, I understand the passion, work, and humility it takes to become the forerunner in the fashion world. Before setting out to become the guide and teacher to other fashion entrepreneurs, I diligently built SHIFT StyleHouse into a very profitable fashion business.

It all started with paper dolls…

Who remembers paper dolls? I  was introduced to fashion back in 80's when my mom used to purchase paper doll books from the grocery store for me to play with, and I used to dress them up in their little paper outfits and pretend they were going somewhere really special.

As I got older, I participated in various fashion activities such as: coordinating fashion shows, modeling, helping on photo shoots, etc. From there, I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Merchandising from Michigan State University followed by a Masters in Business Administration.

I went on to:

  • be a Corporate Retail Buyer for several Fortune 500 retailers

  • work as a fashion stylist for some of your favorite artists

  • travel across the globe styling for concerts, movie premieres, and press tours

  • work as a dresser for some of the biggest New York Fashion Week Shows to date

  • work in the presence of FASHION GIANTS

After extensive work in the fashion world, I started SHIFT StyleHouse. I didn't know how things would turn out. I simply knew I was a lover of fashion and loved seeing the confidence women exuded when they got dressed up. SHIFT StyleHouse is a fashion platform offering versatile fashion for the modern day renaissance woman. SHIFT is powered by love and determination to empower women through style. It has been one of my greatest joys, supported by thousands of women from around the world.

TODAY, I HELP FASHION ENTREPRENEURS TURN THEIR DREAMS TO REALITY.

I use my years of knowledge in fashion and retail to teach my clients how to build better fashion businesses and get the results they desire.

Through my experience of working in Corporate Retail Buying at major retailers, paired with teaching Merchandise and Buying Strategies for the Art Institutes, and becoming a successful fashion entrepreneur myself, I have the knowledge, experience, and expertise to share strategies and tools many others in the industry don’t.
