Image Consultancy

As well as styling, I provide Image Consultancy services 

My take on image consultancy is that someone should know how to represent themselves authentically for the situation, and determine how they want to be perceived - asking them what is their identity?  As people are multi dimensional and have different aspects to their lives I look at image styling as being costume design for every day, depending on what role in your life you're currently being. As costume design describes unspoken aspects of a character, your image makes a statement about you as a person.  This is less tangible, and would take a while to evaluate through conversation.

By being more self aware you become more confident and assertive through understanding and appreciating yourself and acknowledging your self worth.

It's not about if your bum looks big in that skirt or not but with having you represent yourself genuinely and appropriately through displaying your persona accurately.

The image consultancy services I provide include body shape and colour analysis, wardrobe evaluation and outfit planning.  I put outfits together ensuring items suit according to body shape, personal taste etc and explain why.  I aim to understand someone's preferred styles of clothing and make sure of the suitability for the occasion and make sure there's adequate choice, developing style concepts for special events of more adventurous looks, and I keep a strong awareness of developing appropriate looks to suit the event  Being trained in body shape and colour analysis means clients are dressed for their body shape/size and colour season so they look their brightest and feel comfortable, and by defining someone's individual style means I create outfits to their satisfaction.  I have a great network of stores and designers which gives a lot of choice for clients, and i maintain careful budget planning and record keeping.

I charge sensible rates - it's Glasgow after all, not London!  Colour and body shape analysis is £60, wardrobe evaluation is £100, a half day shop is £100 and a full day shop with lunch is £165.  I hope this appeals to people to might want to try working with an image consultant and I can get you off to a great start.
