Image Consultant, Personal Stylist, and Personal Shopper Training for the Business Savvy and Glamorous Woman

Are you a vibrant, sophisticated, dynamic, international, glamazon interested in image, fashion and style?

If you have always wanted to turn your interest in fashion and style into working with others without having to work in a retail store earning retail dollars, then the Sterling Style Academy is the place for you to turn these dreams into reality.

We may not have 25 years of experience training image consultants and personal shoppers, however we have the fastest growing rising stars in the personal styling and personal shopper industry worldwide who are making a name for themselves in countries like the US, Canada, Japan, Guatemala, Chile, and the UAE.  These media darlings understand what it takes to start a thriving business and they’ve all done it in less than 3 years!  One of our alumni, Maria Acquaroni, only graduated from our 2.5 Week Certification Program in Miami in January 2011 and she has her own TV show, writes a column for a newspaper in addition to writing her own fashion blog, Style by Red.  She is one of the most creative and talented people who has graduated from the Sterling Style Academy yet she is also extremely determined and business savvy. 

What do all these women have in common?  They are women on a mission to succeed and that is what you learn at the Sterling Style Academy.  Our curriculum is not only rigorous and conforms to the universally accepted standards of the industry, it is also taught by our founder, internationally recognized image consultant Michelle T. Sterling, whose no nonsense, straight forward, and detailed oriented approach to training propels her students to succeed and take their businesses to the next level within their first two years of operation.  One of our graduates, Laurie Harden, completed our 3-Day Short Certification Course in San Francisco in April 2011 and within two months she had seen eight clients.  Now that is amazing!  She purchased our Sales, Marketing, and Business Brand Identity Launch Kit and used the sales pitches to sell her services to her network of acquaintances – resulting in an instant return on investment.

So for all of you who are unsure whether you should make the investment in training at the Sterling Style Academy, we ask you to ask yourself the following questions:

1)      Do you LOVE fashion?

2)      Do you LOVE shopping?

3)      Do you have good people skills?

4)      Do you enjoy impacting people’s lives?

5)      And do you want to be successful, have an entrepreneurial spirit, believe in yourself, and have great execution skills?

If you answered yes to the first four questions, then you should definitely pursue a career as an image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper.  However you should only train at the Sterling Style Academy if you answered an astounding yes to question #5.  Sterling Style Academy graduates choose to train with us because we value quality and know how what it takes to become a successful image consultant in the least amount of time through hard work and perseverance.  So make the best investment of your life by investing in you and your future.   

Being an exceptional image consultant is not all about the glitz and the glamour (although that makes work more fun), it’s also about hard work and determination to make a name for yourself.  The Sterling Style Academy is proud of producing business savvy, glamorous women who are pleased to call themselves Sterling Style Academy Certified Image Consultants.

Image Consultant, Personal Stylist, & Personal Shopper Training Courses at the Sterling Style Academy 2011

We’ve had a wonderful year so far training fabulous men and women from all over the world.  Each of them are talented in their own way and bring a unique perspective to the image consulting, personal styling and personal shopping industry.  If you were busy during the first part of 2011 however are still interested in becoming an image consultant and personal shopper this year, here’s our revised schedule for the rest of 2011.

If you love New York, you will have two opportunities to train there in September.  Enlist into either our 3-Day Short Certification Courses or our Corporate Image Consultant Certification Program.  If you are interested in learning how to better dress yourself or style others, the 3-Day Short Course will be the perfect class for you.  If you would like to become a corporate image consultant who works with executives on developing their professional presence, our Corporate Image Consultant Certification Course will position you to work with politicians, C-Level executives, and public figures who are interested refining their professional image.  Corporate clients also invest more for image consulting services, so evaluate your strengths and position yourself to become a top-notch image consultant with the Sterling Style Academy.

In October, the Sterling Style Academy offers courses in San Francisco.  This is the best time of year to come to San Francisco because of the Indian summer weather.  You have your choice of enrolling into our 3-Day Short Certification Program to become a color consultant and personal shopper or our 2.5 Week Certification Program to become a certified image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper.  Our 2.5 Week Program is a fully comprehensive course which will also prepare you for the AICI FLC Exam and will position you to offer services such as Personal Style Evaluations, Wardrobe and Closet Evaluations, Personal Shopping and Wardrobe Look Books.

In November, the Sterling Style Academy will be in Dubai offering three opportunities to become a color consultant, personal stylist, personal shopper and image consultant.  We will also be having our annual Alumni Event and Prospective New Student Business Forum during the last weekend in October in Dubai.  This is your opportunity to network with other graduates, build your business skills, and learn more about the industry.  Your training program choices will be the following:

Regardless of which program you choose to matriculate into, you will definitely learn a great deal of information to enhance your future career development.  As the Middle East and Dubai have tremendous business growth potential over the next few years, many companies are still expanding into that region and their human resources departments are looking for executive trainers to polish their employees’ professional presence.  As a woman you will probably only work with expat men and women in this region, however as Dubai is only 15% populated by the Arab community, you will have a tremendous opportunity to gain corporate clients if you market and position yourself properly.  Many Europeans also travel to Dubai on business and would prefer to work with an executive coach who is trained from an internationally recognized institute.  And as India’s economy is booming, many Indians enjoy traveling to and live in Dubai to go out, shop and live the glamorous life.  Nigeria is also an up and coming market, and many individuals from Nigeria travel to Dubai for their fashion fix.  So take advantage of this opportunity to gain international exposure from the image consultants who are sought out for their international visibility and brand identity.  You too can be part of our successful group of graduates when you enroll into the Sterling Style Academy.  We have the highest number of graduates who become successful in the least amount of time, so what are you waiting for?

And the Sterling Style Academy will conclude 2011 with our 3-Day Short Certification Courses in Mumbai, Johannesburg and Hong Kong.  If you are interested in learning how to dress to impress, this course is for you.  If you are interested in teaching people how to dress to impress, this course is also for you.  If you would like to work with the social elite and help individuals elevate their status through the clothing they wear, this course will lead you to not only be able to dress men and women, but also make someone look like a celebrity too.  Celebrities don’t naturally look well put together on their own – they have a stylist!  So learn how to become your own personal stylist or a personal stylist to the rich and famous in India and China.  Both are booming markets with a tremendous amount of growth potential and both countries love their brands.  So why look like a fashion cliché when you can look like a fashion icon?  Enlist in the Sterling Style Academy today.

Why Does One Decide to Pursue a Career as an Image Consultant, Personal Stylist, or Personal Shopper? See What the Sterling Style Academy’s Training Director, Michelle T. Sterling, has to say about it.

When people ask me why do you do what you do and do people really make money doing it?  The answer is because I LOVE what I do with an absolute passion and yeah, I make a living doing it too!  Now just because I’m passionate about what I do doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of hard work, round-the-clock projects, and innovation going on – not to mention the need for execution.  My career started out, just as yours will too, putting all the time, effort, and energy into networking, creating strategic alliances, finding my niche – ultimately all to market myself and get my name out there.

Learn How to Ignite Your Inner Passion to Reach Your True Career Potential as an Image Consultant, Personal Stylist & Personal Shopper

At the Sterling Style Academy we receive many calls from students who are interested in becoming an image consultant, personal stylist, personal shopper or fashion stylist.  Although we have many informational videos on YouTube telling you about the industry and how it is a growing profession, we know that our prospective students still have their doubts and that their significant others always question the viability of this industry and if you will make money being an image consultant, personal shopper, and personal stylist.

The key to anyone’s success as an image consultant, personal stylist, or personal shopper, and more importantly, as an entrepreneur are the following:

1) PASSION.  Only with a love for this industry will you truly succeed.  You may choose a niche or direction you wish to take upon completion of our certification program, however fundamentally you must have a true love for image, fashion, and style.

2) DRIVE AND MOTIVATION.  These are the next key components in order to become a successful image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper.  Becoming a success doesn’t happen overnight.  It requires hard work, persistence, consistency, and perseverance not to give up even when the going gets tough.  Any business owner goes through their business ups and downs – therefore it is important to have faith, keep calm and carry on.

3) CREATIVITY AND INSPIRATION.  This is the next necessary component for success.  Not only do you need to be creative in your styling abilities and be able to work with clients to dress them according to their personal style, you must also be creative in the manner in which you approach business.  In order to become successful, you need to be able to promote yourself, your business, and your abilities to the best of your capacity.  This requires you to think out of the box, be flexible, and most importantly be able to take risks.  Those who succeed will always diversify their businesses to meet the current economic demands.  And when creativity meets inspiration, you have success.

4) SELF-BELIEF AND SELF-CONFIDENCE. Believing in yourself is the last key component in order to be successful.  If you truly want to build a business as an image consultant, personal stylist, and personal shopper, you have to really want it like nothing else you’ve ever wanted, believe that you can have it, and allow the universe to open doors before you.  Every opportunity becomes a business opportunity to foster relationships, educate people regarding your services, and attain new clients.  If you are confident in your own abilities, others will have confidence in you and your capabilities.  If you believe that you can be successful and never doubt yourself for more than a second, you will be successful and you will develop the career of your dreams.

At the Sterling Style Academy, we not only set you up for success with our Sales, Marketing, Business Brand Identity Launch Kit, we also provide you with teleclasses in order to grow and build your businesses.  To learn more about how you can become more successful, we invite you to purchase the book, Success Simplified, co-authored by Michelle T. Sterling, Sterling Style Academy Founder and Training Director.

Have You Looked into Image Consulting and Personal / Fashion Styling Courses at the London College of Fashion in London and Dubai, or FIT in NY?

While London College of Fashion in London and Dubai or FIT in New York are great institutions, their curriculum is based on all aspects of fashion and not just on image consulting, fashion styling, personal styling, or personal shopping.

Wouldn’t you want to be trained by industry experts who excelled in their careers within the first 3 years of consulting and successively increased their earnings by over 100 percent after their second and third years in business?  Not only is image consulting a career and a profession, it’s also an entrepreneurial industry and in order to succeed you must be armed with an industry focused education, the right tools, and have inspired passion and motivation to succeed.  The key to any successful entrepreneur lies in your ability to make things happen. That means marketing yourself appropriately, developing a strong professional network of individuals, and applying your education to inspire others to be the best they can be.

At the Sterling Style Academy, we not only provide you with a top-notch education focused on the elements and principles of design as it relates to image, fashion, and style, our instructors also inspire you to run successful businesses which is backed by our Sales, Marketing, Business Brand Identity Launch Kit.

Sterling, is co-author with Steven Covey on Success Simplified.

So as you can see when selecting an image consulting training program that suits your needs, carefully consider the following: 1)  what you want for yourself, 2) what type of business do you want to build, and 3) do you want to have fun doing it in the process because image consulting and personal styling are just not careers, it’s a lifestyle too!

Image Consulting, Personal Styling & Shopping – The Fastest Growing, Upcoming Fashion Career in Brazil, Russia, India and China

Looking fashionable, wearing a multitude of designer brands, and dressing to impress has been a growing and sustaining cultural interest in countries like Brazil, Russia, India and China, as well as other countries like Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Indonesia, Egypt, Angola, Bangladesh, Mexico, Columbia, Poland, Turkey and South Africa.  GCC countries, such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, and Bahrain, have long adopted the notion of dressing only in brands.  It’s not uncommon that you will see someone wearing Louis Vuitton or Chanel handbags, with Hermes or Dolce & Gabanna belts, paired with Christian Louboutin or Gucci shoes, and Roberto Cavali or Armani clothing. However the big question is: Does it all look well put together?!  Let’s be honest, sometimes it does however often times it doesn’t.  While these non-GCC countries have the fastest growing middle class, not all of them know how to project class and need an image consultant or personal stylist to show them how to exude celebrity – type status.

Being wealthy versus actually knowing how to look wealthy do not always go hand in hand.  Many of the up and coming middle class of Brazil, Russia, India, and China, as well as in Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Indonesia, Egypt, Angola, Bangladesh, Mexico, Poland, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and South Africa have money, however they do not necessarily know how to project wealth, status, and prominence – although they want to.  Achieving a look of prominence and prestige is more than just putting a lot of logo brands together such as a Gucci logo fedora, Louis Vuitton monogram logo belt, with a Dolce & Gabanna logo tank top, J Brand jeans, and Christian Dior logo sandals.  Could you imagine your head spinning while looking at all those logos?  I’m certain you’ve actually already seen that look in some of your shopping malls in Moscow, Mumbai, Shanghai, and Dubai.  However, projecting an image of wealth and prestige is achieved by how you tastefully put together an outfit to create a visually pleasing, cohesive look.  The keyword is tastefully.  And if you are actually able to achieve this look, you may actually have people come up to you and say (or think) you look expensive when you might just be wearing a Zara jacket, H&M top, and Mango jeans, along with your designer jewelry, shoes, and handbag.  Often times perception can become reality and that is what you can learn to do for yourself and for others at the Sterling Style Academy.

The Sterling Style Academy trains top notch image consultants, personal stylist, and personal shoppers to make the inexpensive look expensive.  Women and men from all over the world choose to attend one of our 10 worldwide training programs in Miami, New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Sydney, London, Hong Kong, Dubai, and Mumbai, as well as Online.  Fashionistas from Mexico, Columbia, Brazil and from Europe (Russia), often choose to attend training in Miami or New York.  Those from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Turkey, Egypt, Angola, Bangladesh, South Africa, Nigeria, India, Iran, Pakistan, and Russia choose to either attend our programs in Dubai, Mumbai, London, or New York.  While aspiring image consultants and personal stylists from Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, South Korea, Indonesia, and Malaysia choose to either attend our San Francisco or World Traveler Program in Sydney and Hong Kong or in London and New York.  The image consultant training choices at the Sterling Style Academy are endless and the earnings potential as a pioneer in your own country are amazing as well especially when you see how well our students from fast-growing, developing nations have made an imprint in their societies as credible professionals who are often featured in magazines and newspapers, or have their own TV shows.  These Sterling Style Academy graduates are not just fashion professionals, they are upcoming celebrity stylists like Ameriga Giannone in Chile and Maria Cristina Acquaroni in GuatemalaNow is also a great time to invest in image consultant and personal stylist training at the Sterling Style Academy as the U.S. Dollar is weak against many other currencies making our training program “cheap & chic” from your currency perspective.  

You too can make this a career of your dreams by enrolling in the Sterling Style Academy image consulting, personal styling, and personal shopping training certification programs or by enlisting in our Short eCourses or Teleclass. Contact us today for more information on how you can create a fashion career for yourself, working for yourself, in a fast-growing economy.  By investing in yourself, you will be investing in your future.

The Sterling Style Academy regards the Morgan’s Hotel on Madison Avenue our home when we train aspiring personal shoppers and personal stylists to master the elements and principles of image, fashion and style.  You’ll learn how to select the appropriate colors, silhouettes, textures and patterns to meet the style needs of your clients in the contemporary setting of the Morgans Hotel with fellow aspiring personal shoppers and personal stylists from around the globe.

Once you’ve mastered the science behind fashion and style, you will experience the practical application of conducting personal style evaluations, wardrobe clustering, personal shopping sessions, and working hands-on with a variety of internationally recognized fashion collections.   After you’ve practiced your newly mastered styling skills on other members of the class, the Sterling Style Academy brings in actual personal shopping clients so students may work directly with real people in need of real wardrobe and image solutions.  The hands on, industry training we offer at the Sterling Style Academy provides you with the best real world experience prior to providing real solutions for real people.

To be a well-rounded personal stylist it is important to have some product knowledge of skin care and make up.  Therefore the Sterling Style Academy partners with Dior Make Up providing you with a Master Class in make up application conducted by Dior Make Up Artists.  Our students are also trained to conduct wardrobe and closet consultations by working with an actual designer wardrobe in need of professional assistance so you can master closet organization principles and the secrets to creating a well-functioning wardrobe for which your personal styling clients will pay top dollar.  To conclude the class, students learn how to create wardrobe lookbooks tailored to each client as an additional service you may offer in your personal styling and personal shopping service arsenal.
