Why become an image consultant, personal stylist and personal shopper?
Has your career compass always pointed towards fashion, but you aren’t sure what the right path to take is? Becoming an image consultant, personal stylist or personal shopper is not for everyone, but if you dream of having a career that is anything but boring and that offers a new adventure every week, it may be the perfect choice for you.
A career as a personal stylist or personal shopper allows you to continuously meet new people and affords tons of great travel opportunities. Plus, working for yourself means you have plenty of freedom and best of all, you get paid to do something you love for a living — shopping and styling clothes!
Why do you need training?
To be a successful personal stylist you need to have more than just an eye for style. Savvy stylists understand that image consulting is more than just choosing outfits you like and convincing other people to buy them. It also takes plenty of training, skill and hard work.
While a natural ability to find and create flattering looks for your clients is essential, image consultant training is also a very important aspect of getting started in the personal stylist and shopper business. And professional training also increases your cachét along with your ability to establish and build trust with clients.
As an image consultant it is imperative that you keep up with the latest fashion trends as well as know how to determine which brands, sizes, shapes and fits of different items are right for your client. Sterling Style Academy’s personal shopper training programs are offered in fashion forward cities across the globe including New York, Miami, London and Dubai.
The Academy’s training courses teach you everything from how to research fashion trends and clothing lines to techniques for visualizing the way in which clothing will translate from the hanger to your client’s body and how to dress different body types. Our personal stylist training will also teach you how to professionally interact with clients, strategies for working with difficult people, valuable marketing techniques and tips on how to stay organized so that you can begin building your own personal styling clientele.
In addition to enhancing your professional knowledge, Sterling Style Academy’s image consultant training gives you real-world, hands on training that will help jump start your career as a stylist. Our personal stylist training provides important experience in selecting clothing, make-up, hairstyles, and accessories and learn how to appropriately style for a variety of needs from fashion shoots to videos or live performances.
Once you have learned the basics in one of our image consultant training programs, you’ll be ready to put your knowledge to work and create a successful, lucrative freelance career in the fashion and stylist industry.
