Image Consultant Training

 Become a Personal Stylist and Image Consultant


Are you interested in becoming a personal stylist or image consultant? If you enjoy helping people look and feel great, are not colour blind, and enjoy clothes then this could be the career for you. It has great flexibility and there are many options of where you can take your skills.

Imogen provides Image Consulting and Personal Stylist training through the Academy of Professional Image.  Please check out the AoPI website for all the details.

The training style is very experiential, practical and hands on, rather than just sitting in a classroom listening to the teacher. You will be expected to work through many exercises in a workbook, as well as practical exercises in every section of the course, from personal shopping through to draping clients for colour analysis and applying make-up.

I have had the great pleasure of being trained as an image consultant by Imogen, and of still regularly receiving her generous instruction via monthly webinars.

I chose training with Imogen after researching numerous image consultant training agencies, and concluding that her Academy of Professional Image had by far the most thorough and scientific approach to the whole issue of personal colour analysis. I was not surprised therefore, that Imogen herself was very thorough in her approach to training: she provides the student with an enormous amount of knowledge, well thought-out exercises and all the tools necessary to set up business as an image consultant.

I have met few teachers this willing to impart what know-how they have. Imogen truly aims to arm the student, the client, the blog reader, everyone really, with the knowledge they need to make a difference, whether it be in their personal wardrobe, their career opportunities or their business endeavours.

Image Consultant Training training provided by Imogen Lamport AICI CIP. Accredited for 7.7 CEUs by AICI
Training dates and schedules are available on the Academy of Professional Image website

I completed the full Image Consultant Training course with Imogen Lamport in January of 2012.  I found Imogen to be extremely professional, committed and enthusiastic and to possess a wealth of knowledge in all matters related to fashion styling and personal image.  The course modules on colour analysis, body shape and style, wardrobe, personal shopping and business planning were invaluable and prepared me extremely well for starting up my own business. The resources provided as part of the training were comprehensive and all material had been designed and written by Imogen for training purposes.  The course was exceptionally well planned and structured and the content allowed for delivery of theory, practical experience, interaction, discussion and site visits.  Imogen’s verbal and written communication skills were outstanding and she facilitated a learning environment that was informative, friendly, helpful and encouraging.  I was also extremely impressed by Imogen’s expertise and experience and her willingness to share this with her trainees.  Imogen’s approach to training was to offer the most outstanding service possible and she continued to make herself available for ongoing advice, direction and suggestions after the formal training period had concluded.I found Imogen to be unsurpassed in her role as a trainer, educator and mentor and I would recommend her in the highest possible terms to anyone seeking to obtain a thorough foundation of knowledge and skills in the image consulting field. Arena Nilsson, Arena Nilsson Image Consulting
