3 reasons to hire an image consultant

 

1. set yourself apart

Style is a powerful form of self-expression. When there is so much information and materia available it’s easy to loose insight. Sometimes you don’t even know where to begin and that’s when I come to your rescue. I map with your the areas you need the most help with and can give you unbiased advice on your personal image. My job is to make you shine and to make your life easier. I enjoy the most to see the glow of confidence and excitement on my client’s face when they try on an outfit or an item of clothing that speaks volumes on them. It belongs to their story and they know it. Others certainly will notice it!

2. Save Money

I will help you to get rid of the things things in your wardrobe that you no longer need and I will help you rediscover items that you had forgotten about or always found difficult to combine. I know which items are missing from your wardrobe and which items would complete your look. With me you will always shop with an intention. You will never return home from your shopping trip with the 5th black cardigan or a fashionable item that looks dated in a month’s time ever again. I am not a sales person and so I don’t take any kickbacks from shops from your purchases. If I am participating an affiliate program through my website it’s always clearly marked so you can make an educated choice. I shop with all budgets and all brands from Primark to Prada. As a bonus I also know when the sales start and sometimes I can even predict which items will end up in sales so you can snatch them for half the price when the time is right.

3. Save Time

Get dressed in a flash? Shop like a pro? Yes please. I have made a career of knowing how to build looks that complement your best features. I always find the hidden gems in the fashion jungle. I know which shops have the nicest staff and tidiest fitting rooms. I have a nose for when the new stock is coming in and where you could still find sold out items. I plan our shopping trip so that we spend minimum time from moving from shop to another. I always keep in mind your budget, your body shape, your colours and your lifestyle. I advice how to wear your outfits and how to take care of them so you can cherish them for years. I also know the web shops inside out so shopping online will me will be a breeze over a cup of coffee.

Shop Your Closet

Is your wardrobe bursting from it’s seams but still you have nothing to wear? Tired of buying new items only to find them unused in the back of your closet after several months? Fed up with wasting money on mediocre items that kind-of almost look okay but bring you no joy or increased confidence? Time to sort out your wardrobe with I on Image!

Here at I on Image I use a simple 3-step method that you can easily copy into your own routine. Having someone else take a critical look at your wardrobe helps you keep your thoughts clear throughout the process. Ask a stylish friend or invest in a personal stylist.

Make your wardrobe work for you and not the other way around!

 

1. PLAN your wardrobe

Well planned is half done. Set you style intention and define the key elements of your style. Start building outfits that reflect your personality and bring the best out in you.

You probably already know what looks good on you. My job is to make you aware of it and become intentional and consistent about your style. The best dressed people always look like they just threw something fabulous on before heading out to do fabulous things.

Spoiler alert: They did not. Their wardrobe is carefully curated and outfits well planned. When the foundation of your wardrobe is built well you too can literally just throw something fabulous on without having to think about it twice.

2. PREPARE your wardrobe

We hold on to things for various reasons but having too much can cause stress and confusion. No wonder Mary Kondo became so popular. We are literally drowning in stuff and clothes are no exception, in fact they are a huge waste problem in the world.

Where do all those polyester party tops that you wore once -or gasp, not even once- go to retire? Taking control of your wardrobe is good for your own clarity but the planet will thank you too.

Make some space for your real style and learn to let go of habits that are not contributing to your wellbeing nor to your style. You’ll soon notice that you don’t need to keep on buying more because you’ll love what you already have.

3. STORE your clothes right

By this final step there should be some breathing space in your closet that allows you to see what you have on pretty much just one glimpse. All my clients love the simplicity and speed of choosing what to wear after my visit.

Utilize your wardrobe space well and make conscious storage choices that improve your every day life. Instagram-worthy wardrobe are no longer the privilege of the rich and famous. You too can have a closet full of “good friends” as my lovely client Susanne said it.

Some Wardrobe transformations

Shop your closet with I on Image

For a more in-depth approach I recommend booking I on Image’s Wardrobe Analysis session where tailored style advice, handy shopping list and fresh suggestions on how to get the most out of your clothes is provided.

I come to your house and build strong looks from the items you already have. I take a critical look at each piece. Some may have to go, some need to be replaced. I hang your complete outfits from Monday to Friday in your closet for fast and easy mornings.

We take photos of each outfit and you can use them as your visual style journal. Getting a sudden invitation to a big meeting, an interview or a fun dinner after work will never be a fashion dilemma for you again.

Allow yourself to try on new and unexpected combinations. Fall in love with your existing clothes over and over again. You will always know you what to wear and you can fully concentrate on what matters the most to you.

FAQ at I on Image

You have questions, I have answers. Welcome to FAQ at I on Image!

 

FAQ, Image Consultant, personal stylist, personal shopper

© I on Image

1.Who is your typical client?

My typical client appreciates that your image is a powerful form of self-expression and has great impact on how you feel about yourself. They lead busy and versatile lives and want to dedicate time for their friends, families and personal development. They value self-care and are eager to invest in services that make their lives easier.

2. How do the online sessions work?

On popular demand I on Image offers now also online sessions via Skype, WhatsApp or regular call for a lower hourly rate. This option is ideal for those who prefer to have the consulting from the comfort of their own home or office. Online personal shopping has become increasingly popular due to the conveniency of the webshops being open 24/7.

Please note that the items and the delivery cost need to be either pre-paid on I on Image’s account of paid by yourself upon checkout. I can arrange fitting sessions at your location and returns on your behalf but those will be charged at regular hourly rate as they involve travel, parking etc.

Learn more about the way I work here.

3. Is there a minimum number of hours per appointment?

Yes. I on Image has a 2 hour booking minimum. The optimal duration of one appointment is somewhere between 2-4h. Anything more on one go starts to get quite intense and of course I don’t want to  exhaust you.

We can always book a second session on another day. Rome was not built in a day and the same applies to your image. Your booked services will be invoiced after the session and they are calculated in half hour increments. If your session lasts only 1.5h you will still be invoiced for 2h.

You can also pay by Tikkie, make a prepayment on I on Image’s account or pay by cash. A copy of an invoice will always be provided for your records.

4. Do you make BEFORE and AFTER pictures?

Only if you want me to. Most of my clients are uncomfortable having their pictures on the internet, especially the before pictures, and I hated the idea of trying to convince them to do it. Many of my clients prefer anonymity and confidentiality and I want to fully respect that wish.

Also everyone has their own unique style that reflects their one-of-a-kind personality. As a professional I understand how to make you shine and look like the best version of you without the need to copy something that is not speaking volumes on you.

5. Is there a minimum shopping budget for your clients?

No. I work with all budgets and all brands from Primark to Prada. It’s still wise to plan a bit ahead and give the topic some thought to avoid overspending and buyer’s remorse.

6. How do you determine which shops to take a client?

Having worked in fashion retail myself I am quite picky about where I take my clients. I always want to offer an inspiring and pleasant experience for you and to be able to do that I weigh the following aspects:

  • Your wishes: This is where it all starts!
  • Location: I consider distances between shops so that your time is not unnecessarily wasted on travel
  • Shop staff: This is self-explanatory. They just need to be good.
  • Shop selection: I follow my favorite shops actively so I know when it’s the best time to visit them.
  • Shop’s overall experience: I love shops that look nice and display their items well. Clean fitting rooms are a must and big plus if they serve drinks, offer tailoring services and home delivery.

7. What if I hate shopping?

Majority of my clients find shopping a daunting task and some will exclusively shop online with me for this very reason. Some of my clients have told me that after shopping with me they actually enjoyed shopping because they enjoyed the end results so much. However some will always hate shopping and I fully accept it as long as you agree to try the things on.

8. But what if I love shopping?

I just love shopping with clients who enjoy it as much as I do! Some of my clients who love shopping don’t always know how to pick the best pieces for themselves so hiring me enhances their shopping experience and overall look.

Some of my clients just love to have someone shop with them and sometimes they are shopping for an event or a job so important that having a professional with them makes them feel more secure and satisfied about their choices.

I on Image at work -Creating ageless and timeless looks

This great The Guardian article by Alyson Walsh of inspirational style blog That’s not my age from last week made good fashion resolutions for grownups.

“…beyond a certain age, style becomes personal. The urge to buy into every trend subsides and it’s all about finding an individual look; one that’s timeless and ageless and works for you.”

– Alyson Walsh for The Guardian

These are basically the same style dilemmas my clients battle with. I do my very best every day to help my clients find their own style that tells their story. I often get asked how. This is how I roll at I on Image.

What happens during a personal styling session?

First I dive inside your wardrobe. I build strong looks from the items you already have. I take a critical look at each piece. Some may have to go, some will be replaced. I hang your complete outfits from Monday to Friday in your closet for fast and easy mornings.

Often there are more than 5 outfits. And even more often the clients get inspired and creative along the process! Every outfit is documented or alternatively we take photos. Getting a sudden invitation will never be a fashion dilemma for you again. Your personal style journal will always have an answer for you.

Then we make a shopping list to fill in the gaps in your style narrative. I take in consideration your existing wardrobe, body shape, colours, budget and other special wishes. Many clients are surprised how short the list can be. My last client really needed just a perfect black jacket and a couple of shirts to replace the old ones.

Finally we hit the shops. Some clients like to shop on their own when they know what they are looking for. I am happy to shop with those who prefer gentle guidance. I know brands, materials, current trends and styles that will flatter you forever. Some customers feel confident enough to shop alone after a few rounds, some love the service so much that they don’t want to shop alone ever again.

 

What I love the most about my job

I enjoy the most to see the glow of confidence and excitement on my client’s face when they try on an outfit or an item of clothing that speaks volumes on them. It belongs to their story and they know it.

“In life and in fashion: “It’s good to maintain a sense of wonder.”

–  Iris Apfel for The Guardian
