What you will learn
What exactly is Image?
You’ve probably seen image consultants on TV transform the looks of people who struggle when it comes to dressing themselves suitably. You’ve seen the positive impact that a new image can have on people.
Good or bad, society these days focuses heavily on appearance. So many people get left behind because they have little or no idea of what they should wear. And when they continually struggle to dress right, they give up and don’t care anymore, resulting in knock backs and damaged self-confidence.
That’s why they need help from lucky people like you who have a natural flair for colours, shape, and most importantly fashion. You can transform them from a blur in the background to a walking masterpiece.
