Are you fashion-savvy and always seem to just “know” what looks good and what doesn’t? Do your friends and family constantly ask you for fashion advice when dressing or shopping for new clothes? Have you ever thought, “Hey, I could do that,” when watching one of television’s numerous image makeover shows? Consider becoming an image consultant and put that natural talent to use or simply hone your skills for personal and/or professional use.
The image consultant training program successfully integrates technical and aesthetic skills and business development with practical application. The program is taught in modules, layering information sequentially. The full program is 9 days in duration, although you can take separate modules. Prior business experience is an asset, but not a requirement. Although we prefer to train you in all areas - color, style, wardrobe, personal shopping, and menswear market - we welcome qualified applicants with other professional color and image consulting skills.
