As a Melbourne image consultant, I constantly meet women who are after a change in the way they look. Our appearance is attached to our identity, and as our roles in life evolve and change, our identity is also constantly changing. With so much emphasis on the way we look today, and with more and more women not content to just stay at home, the demand for image consultants has increased.
Being a Melbourne image consultant is something I am very passionate about, and something I find extremely rewarding. Every day, I watch as women of all ages flourish, grow and gain confidence, all because they have worked with me on improving their style, and de-cluttering their wardrobe.
We should all be able to walk to our wardrobe with confidence, knowing we will find the perfect outfit each and every day. It is our wardrobe, it has been built specifically for us, has it not? However, more often than not, this is not the case. Most of us have a fear of our wardrobe, and end up walking away from it confused and frustrated.
Some women come to me looking for an impartial opinion, someone who will be honest enough to tell them what works for them, and what does not. This is important, but it is not just about honesty, it is also about knowing how to put things together. I can give you an honest opinion, but I can also tell you exactly what styles you should be wearing to enhance your body shape, how to wear those styles, and where to look for them.
Another time when people tend to seek an image consultant in Melbourne is at the change of season. Winter fashion, Summer fashion, Autumn, and Spring. The seasons are constantly changing, and along with it, the fashion. Some people have difficulty with this transition, which is where I come in. With a wardrobe consultation, I can analyse the pieces you do have, and help you work out exactly what you will need for the coming season.
In Melbourne, the fashion stands out head and shoulders above the other states. Melbourne Central, Collins street, Chapel street, Bridge Road, Richmond, and Chadstone the fashion capital, to name just a few, are all full of top Australian designer labels. But it’s not just Australian designers you will find, Melbourne houses many other fashion labels from all around the world. To discover more about Melbourne’s world of fashion, Melbourne fashion week is by far the best time to explore, when in-store events and cultural programs are aplenty.
As a Melbourne Image consultant, I take my clients to all of the best shopping outlets, taking into consideration the time they have, where they need to travel from, and what budget they are on. I generally spend about 2 to 4 hours with my client on a shopping expedition, and I encourage them to try on many different styles of clothing. I try to push them out of their comfort zones to get them to try on new looks, as this is the best way for them to discover their own personal style. My fashion expertise means that I will only show them what will look good on them, but it may be that they never had the courage to try this certain style before.
When I do assessments of women’s wardrobes, I find that there can sometimes be a re-occurring theme to the style that they wear. Quite often it is pieces that are plain and very unflattering to their body shape, and I also find they have many pieces of the same style, just in different colours. This is what my colour and fashion stylist expertise is for.
With all my clients, my aim is to make being stylish easy to achieve. We want to put together a harmonious wardrobe, where the styles and colours all work together, and all work for you. Having too many repetitions of colours or styles is generally not going to help you, as you will not be able to wear all of these pieces together. The idea is to build a wardrobe of simple, yet stylish pieces, that will all mix and match well together. I promote style by keeping it simple and elegant.
