Image Consultant Training

 Jan Fisher Image Coach Ltd runs training programmes in conjuction with Imogen Lamport of Bespoke Image of Melbourne Australia under the auspices of The Absolute Image Training Institute – “Teaching the art and science of image“.

Our  training style is very experiential, practical and hands on. Rather than just sitting in a classroom listening to the trainer 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 .

Holistic Training

Our Image Consultant Training is developed with the whole client in mind. We do not measure clients, but teach you how to analyse body shapes with your eyes and other simple, non-invasive techniques.

We believe that understanding the clients goals, needs and preferred outcomes is imperative and take a holistic approach, the client’s image is an expression of who they are on the inside, not just which hemlines or necklines work best for them.

We teach you how to show your client how to break the rules.
We show you how to understand the client’s personality and how that must be expressed through the styles of clothing they choose.

We take a very ‘hands on’ approach during the training; it’s not just book learning but practical exercises and experiences to ensure you feel confident to work with clients immediately. We provide you with a range of tools to use with your clients, but don’t lock you into expensive ongoing fees; you only pay for what you use. You brand your image tools with your business image, your logo, your slogan and your details, not ours. Our course fees include  morning tea and afternoon tea.

Training Qualifications and Standard of Courses

Both Imogen and myself are internationally trained and hold certification through the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI). I did my initial training at the International Image Institute in Canada then went on to do more extensive  training in both the USA and Australia. I am a fully qualified trainer and certified to run both Colour Analysis  and Style Training Courses by both the New Zealand  Federation of Image Professionals  and the Association of Image consultants International.

Colour Training

Not all colour systems are equal
My colour training uses a 12 directional palette, which is based on the science of Munsell’s properties of colour.
You are guaranteed to find a palette of colours to suit your client with this system as it has far more options than any seasonal or seasonal flow system – which are limited to only 4, 8, or 10 directions. From the rich earth tones of a golden warm colour direction to the soft misty blues of a light cool colour direction, the  range of colours are exceptional in both their range and their analytical  properties.
As our training is very experiential, you will drape a variety of people during your course and so gain the confidence to work with clients.  The system works so easily and so well , that success is assured
