Image Consulting and Styling Work Opportunities, Increasing my Awareness of the Ethical Fashion Field
About me / About business or organisation:
I am a professionally trained image consultant based in London, United Kingdom.
Originally from the South of France, I moved to London in 2002 to pursue my dreams after gaining a post-Master’s degree in European Public Relations from CELSA-Sorbonne (School of Higher Studies in the Information and Communication Sciences) in Paris and living in Stockholm for a while.
After a few years working in the media, I decided to train in image consulting to reconcile two of my great passions: people and style. I strongly believe in everyone’s potential to shine and am committed to helping people of all age and walks of life to achieve their best look and express themselves confidently through their own style.
Likewise, I can help businesses establish a presence that conveys competence and credibility by enhancing their professional image and that of their employees.
As image consultant I offer tailor-made services to help clients present themselves to their best advantage at all times, and ultimately avoid costly mistakes and save valuable time. I also regularly contribute a style and fashion column to The Notebook Kensington and Chelsea and write my own blog.
I received formal training in image consulting at Aston and Hayes Image Consultancy, London and am a member of both the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) and the International Federation of Image Consultants (IFIC) in the UK.
