Fractal image, the ultimate culmination of science, mathematics, and art. (From Coby01 Deviant Art.)

One of the areas that sets Conselle apart is its ability to rely on classic principles of art, and science including mathematics.  As Conselle image consultants, we use the artistic elements and principles of design taught in every university level art foundation class around the world.  Why?  Because what you put on your body is your own artistic representation of who you are.  And it communicates something about you.  It may say that you are incredibly creative, artistically confused, completely boring, or something else entirely. Nevertheless, what you wear speaks before you even say a word.  Because fashion trends come and go, your education can become quickly dated if the focus is only on what’s hot now.  Understanding the messages each artistic element of design conveys, how they relate to the body and personality of each of my clients has helped me find the perfect fit for them.  Science comes into play when we uncover differences in perception, psychological messages, figure variations and anatomy, just to name a few.  These concepts are timeless and will support your career as far as you want to take it.

Judith Rasband says, “Conselle affiliates identify your natural personal characteristics or traits and align them in harmony with clothing and grooming traits, after balancing or counter balancing dominant traits as needed.”

My business is growing and will continue to flourish because of the concepts, strategies and skills based on classic academic principles that relate to what we’re seeing now and will see in the future.   It’s all thanks to Conselle Institute of Image Management. A great education never goes out of style.

Practice consulting with volunteer clients who are extremely different from you.

One of the challenges that image consultants face is knowing how to dress other people according to their personal coloring, figure variation, personal style and lifestyle.  Dressing yourself MAY COME NATURAL TO YOU, but teaching others what works for them, and not necessarily you, is not so easy.  Once you’ve done your homework…because you have taken the advice in tip number 2 and have mastered Wardrobe Strategies…it’s time to implement what you’ve learned.  The best way to do this is by asking a few people if you could “practice” on them.  Because you don’t charge them a fee, you’ll likely have no shortage of volunteers, that’s why we call these no fee clients “volunteer clients”.

Choose people who are both in your target market and different from you in terms of personal coloring, figure variation, personal style and/or lifestyle.  I have dark blonde hair, blue eyes, light skin, average height and build, and my personal style has a wide range.  My volunteer clients were so different from me!  One had black hair, very light skin, with hazel green eyes, a taller/larger build, with a very classic style.  My other volunteer client had dark brown hair, eyes, and skin, petite build, with a sporty/romantic personal style.  Boy did I learn from these two!  They were as different as night and day and expanded my understanding and appreciation for other women.   For example, I learned how to enhance the personal coloring of someone who is not blonde.    I learned about the fitting challenges that exist for so many people who are either taller than average or petite.  And personal style takes on a whole new light when considering such different personalities and backgrounds.  What a way to put my education to the test!  And what a great way to be prepared for the variety of clients I was soon to work with.

Practicing your skills on people who are vastly different from you is a wonderful way to help your clients look fabulous, which in turn, makes you a fabulous image consultant.  I couldn’t have done it without Conselle’s courses, however.  For MORE INFORMATION on how you can become a certified image consultant, click HERE.

  • Do you have trouble getting your ideas accepted by others?
  • Do you often justify or make excuses for the way you look?
  • Do you dislike what you see when you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror or window glass?
  • Do you feel inadequate in knowing how to dress to communicate different moods or messages?
  • Do you limit the places you go because of the clothes you have to wear?
  • Do you feel uncomfortable or intimidated with others who are dressed well?
  • Do you feel frustrated or overwhelmed when shopping for clothes?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, attention to dress can help you.

Most people want to be attractive, but all too often they assume appearance just happens.  Some view it as a matter of luck, or an inherent trait.  Others continually wish, watch and wait for some sort of magic that will make them instantly attractive….turn them into a lion. However, it just doesn’t work that way.  It takes knowledge, thought, and effort.  For those who really want to create an attractive appearance, a personal stylist or image consultant holds the most hope and help.

At Conselle, we have three levels of support to help you reach your full potential.

  3. Custom Clothiers

  5. Makeup Artists
    For makeup artists, Conselle’s valuable Educational-Training will help them be better able to create natural looking makeup according to their client’s personal style.  This prevents the classic individual from looking too girly, the sporty gal from appearing too dramatic, and the romantic woman from looking too unreservedly sexy.
  6. Aspiring Image Consultants
    For individuals who want to start their own image consulting business, there’s no need to start from scratch and reinvent the wheel!  Conselle’s Educational-Training will provide them with tried, tested and true tools and resources to launch and maintain a thriving image consulting practice.
  7. Etiquette Experts
    For etiquette experts, Conselle showcases how the social decline in manners, etiquette, and civility has direct correlation to dress through various illuminating case studies.  With this understanding, etiquette experts will learn specific actions to bring about a positive upswing in their community, at home, and abroad.
