Looking for a new look? Sister team Jasmine and Angelique Gordon may be able to help. In 2018, the Ogden natives founded their business, A La Mode, with the goal of using fashion to help people feel positive about themselves.

“Body positivity and self-love are beyond important to us,” they say. “Our boutique is size inclusive, which is very rare for a small business. We also offer approachable personal styling for women and men.”

A La Mode is one of three member businesses of the Women’s Business Center of Utah (WBCUtah) to receive a grant of $1,000 from Cyprus Credit Union this year.

Like many small businesses, A La Mode has humble beginnings. The Gordons first began doing business out of their living room and attic, and — with some hard work, time, and success — acquired a business space of their own at their current location in Salt Lake City’s Sugar House neighborhood.

“We have seriously dug into the community in the last few years. Business ownership has helped us to connect to people we normally would not have. We continue to stay open to how we can help others with our resources and partnerships.”

That includes students, too.

“We help students who are studying fashion to learn in a hands-on environment.”

Among the services offered by A La Mode are mini style makeovers, where clients can find an outfit for a special occasion or trip; closet clean-outs to help clients declutter their closets of unsuitable items; and wardrobe overhauls, where stylists collaborate with clients to create new wardrobes that best suit the clients.

“We are committed to helping our clients feel good when they go out.”

A La Mode is located at 1121 East 2100 South in Salt Lake City, Utah. To learn more, visit them at, Instagram (@alamodeslc), Pinterest (alamodeslc), X (@alamodeslc), or Facebook.
