3 Reasons You Need an Image Consultant

Why should I hire an image consultant?

This is a question I get asked a lot. As 93% of your communication is based on your appearance.

It’s a hard truth, but what you wear and how you carry yourself makes a difference and will determine if you land the job, get a promotion or being asked on a date!

Like other professionals such a dentist or an account, the image consultant provides a service. Of course to some it may seem frivolous to ask for help in learning how to improve one’s appearance, but image is no less important than a nice smile or tidy accounts.

Just as we search on the web for any kind of information, many women and even men are looking for tips and ideas on how to find their style and improve their image.

Would you go to a veterinarian for a dental consultation? Would you trust an accountant with your company’s financial statements and tax obligations? Probably not. So chances are, if you feel the need to make some changes about yourself, you’re looking for someone who can help and a professional one..

Turning to professional help is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of self-love. It is also a good strategy to save time and money.

Eighty percent of the clothes we buy, often on impulse and emotionally, lie unused in the closet.

Why do you need an image consultant?

1. Will Help Your Self-esteem

Professional help in improving one’s image has a powerful impact on one’s self-esteem: seeing ourselves better makes us feel better about ourselves and others. It can enhance a path of personal growth or contribute to a rebirth after a difficult period.

Not to mention the impact it has on relationships: greater inner confidence makes us better perceived externally as well. And then let’s not forget the work aspect: investing in one’s professional image in the same way we invest in training or promotion creates a winning synergy in any sector.

In America a woman spends an average of between $3,000 and $8,000 a year on clothing, accessories and beauty products. With much less you could hire an image consultant and completely change your shopping strategy. Probably even save money.

Not to mention that with the help of an expert you will be able to feel more confident. A boost of self-esteem, a small investment compared to few sessions with a therapist.

Often when we are changing our look is the first step to bigger change or situation. Sometimes a job that no longer satisfies us or a relationship that has come to an end.

Other times the change is accompanied by a desire for rebirth, perhaps after a pregnancy, a divorce or turning 30s ..40s…

or after an illness or a painful experience, or even the desire to find an image consistent with our personality..

This is why putting order in the closet becomes a metaphor for putting order in our lives. A healing action to get rid of the superfluous.A way to leave the past behind, feel lighter and face the future with a new energy.

There isn’t just one reason to go to an image consultant, because after all, everyone has their own valid reasons.

Image consulting is a profession aimed at helping people enhance their image.

The first image consultants were the costume designers of Old Hollywood, who took maniacal care of the look of the divas, contributing to building their myths and, from time to time, defining their characters.

It was only in the 1980s that image consulting in the USA became a mass phenomenon that was absolutely democratic, within the reach of ordinary women.

What is the difference between an image consultant, personal shopper and stylist?

The image consultant guides the person on a path to enhance their image, studies an effective style and coordinates the different aspects of this process, including shopping.

The personal shopper is a shopping consultant:

a professional highly specialized in the knowledge of brands and boutiques. He or she does not necessarily do image consulting as well.

The Personal Stylist :

has a foundation in image consulting, but is primarily concerned with creating total looks for events, runway shows or photo shoots. He or she is familiar with brands, but not necessarily involved in shopping.

What does a professional image consultant do?

Image consultants are usually experts in marketing and fashion; they train their clients to improve their image for social events or to achieve certain goals. Not only individuals but also companies can be clients of image consultants, although main clients remain executives and politicians.

"Often, when I go out with the intention of buying new clothes, I end up wandering around for hours and not finding anything I really love. Because my time in Paris was limited, I wanted to make the best use of what little opportunity I had for shopping. Enter Linda, who-in just 3 hours-helped me select a range of gorgeous new clothes and accessories, I love absolutely everything I bought. My time with her was an absolute joy: she is very relaxed and easy to chat with, and she really listens to your opinions and steers you towards the things you will like. If only all shopping was this easy!"

"Linda was great helping me set up a personal shopping experience for my wife. She did a great job finding the perfect items according to her laste and style. We were able to get special unique clothes shoes we normally would not be able to find on our own. Highly recommended!"
I'll definitely be back for more!

After wearing one of my new outfits back in London. several people have commented that I had a 'French chic look going on! It was the look I'd asked Linda for, so it seems to be working! Highly recommended - and I'll definitely be back for more!"
Great shopping experience!

"We had such a productive two hours with Linda! My daughter is very petite for her age (14 years old, almost 5'2" and 90 lbs). It is hard for her to find clothes in styles popular in her age group and I was worried that our Paris shopping would be frustrating. I am so glad we booked Linda! We sent her some samples of styles my daughter liked as well as the types of items we were interested in purchasing. Linda mapped out stores and actual items in advance. And she was good at identifying potential options on the fly too. In two hours we got a dress, two pairs of jeans, some slides and two tops that my daughter loves! In every store Linda would quickly ask the salespeople for the smallest sizes and then my daughter would quickly make a call on what she wanted to try. Very efficient! Linda comes from a family in the fashion business and earlier in the day had helped a bride from the U.S. select her couture wedding gown. She is versatile for sure! Thank you Linda for this great highlight of our trip to Paris!"
Amazing Personal Shopping Experience in Paris

"My 13 year old daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Linda. We walked around the Marais area and Linda introduced us to many shops and boutiques. Linda quickly understood what my daughter style is and what she prefers and offered her different and unique items at every store. My daughter is typically not an easy shopper :) but Linda was able to find her multiple beautiful items that she loved and we purchased (all within the budget we pre-defined before starting). We even got one item for me (although this was not our focus this time ...). Linda also helped us to quickly receive the tax refund forms at the different stores we visited. Overall it was an amazing experience which my daughter really enjoyed and marked as one of the highlights of our Paris visit."

"Linda took my daughter and I and another friend and her daughter shopping and it was just perfect. She chose ideal spots for the teenagers and great spots for myself and my friend (we are in our early 50s). She's kind, patient, and thoughtful and really tries to make sure everyone finds what they need/ I also loved that she wasn't pushy with us buying things. She made me feel very comfortable to say you know this is not right for me. I love the shoes I got on our trip and the jeans and my daughter had the best time. This is a really special experience. My only suggestion would be that if you are shopping for teens and grownups to try to add more time because 2 hours was not enough for us! It's a great experience -- hope you enjoy it too!"
