By Vanstalle is...
By Vanstalle is the brand behind the services offered by Alexandra on Image Consulting.
After some thought, the only option was to use the name, in this case the last name, as a brand. Image consulting is about people and it is something so personal, that a name / surname had to be the choice. I am Portuguese, age 37, wife and mother four boys. Vanstalle is a Belgian name I inherited from my husband. I love being Portuguese and living in the Algarve. I feel I am a citizen of the world so I identify myself with Vanstalle.
How I got here
I have always been carefull about my image. I was born in Lisbon and studied communication. Since 2001 I live in the Algarve, I have worked in Interior design, Architecture and Lighting Design companies. All were great jobs, but there was something missing. I had some contact with clients, but was not involved in the creative part.Last year, after some personal and professional difficult times I came across Image Consulting training and something in my head said I HAD to DO IT. After that, I Knew I had found my passion and there was no way back. Here I am, happy and passionate about what I do!
