FR Review:
Amanda Sanders of New York Image Consultants promises that clients will leave her hands looking 10 years younger and 10 pounds thinner, and the clients we spoke with affirm the regenerative effects of her work. "My sessions with Amanda have been life altering," said one. "I feel and look much younger," said another. Sanders' clientele is considerably diverse: a 50/50 split between men and women, a wide range of ages and a sizable number of out-of-towners coming to Manhattan specifically for wardrobe help. Sanders is known for her assertive nature and sharp eye, but she is also fun to be around--"like shopping with a lifelong friend."

New York Image Consultants opened its doors in 1999 as the creation of owner Elena Castaneda. Castaneda spends much of her time touring as an image training expert, with Sanders handling the majority of the day-to-day business. Sanders has some assistance, but when you go to New York Image Consultants you are getting Amanda's time and eye--not an associate's. Sanders has a masters in costume design and started off as a celebrity stylist, having dressed the likes of Chris Rock, Colin Quinn and Gwyneth Paltrow. After a time, she realized that she would rather style non-celebrities and joined New York Image Consultants in 2004 to do just that.

Shopping sessions typically take place in Saks, Bloomingdales or Bergdorf Goodman, where Sanders has all clothing and accessories pulled ahead of time and expertly arranged in the client's personal fitting room. Sanders' hourly fee of $250 (with a three hour minimum) is among the highest, though clients say it's a good value and that Sanders is considerate of a client's budget. A born and bred New Yorker, Sanders knows where to send clients for hairstyling, makeup, tailoring and other services to complete the look. Sanders comes highly recommended for both men and women of varied ages, but seems especially adept at helping clients reach a stylish, in-the-moment look.

Representative Client Comments:
"Amanda has an amazing eye and is at the top of her game." "Amanda has really simplified my life. I now have practical things to wear and no longer look frumpy." "Amanda completely changed the way I dress. I feel and look much younger." "Overall, I've saved money by using Amanda--I no longer buy things that don't look good on me." "Amanda knows her way around Saks, Bloomingdales and Bergdorf--she's found me some great pieces on sale too." "Amanda really takes control." "When I got to Saks for my session, my fitting room was decked in amazing things to try on, from clothes to accessories to tights." "My first session was a gift from my boyfriend--I'll definitely be going back and have already recommended several friends try it." "I can't imagine Amanda not meshing well with anyone, but she is very honest, so you should be able to handle frankness."

I work for this company and want to respond
