I frequently encounter this question when I meet people at parties, social gatherings and a host of other places. Questions range from – “How can I change my image” ? or “what is wrong with my dressing ? “ to “can you suggest me a set of colors and styles ?” . This is akin to asking a psychiatrist in a casual conversation – “Do you think I’m suicidal?”
To all these people, here is what I have to say –
While I appreciate the interest and the new wave of awareness among Men and Women for their images, dressing sense and how they are perceived, I must point out that there are no short cuts to transforming your image and/or your looks. Image consulting, like other consulting professions such as medical or psychiatric, follows a similar set of principles and guidelines based on sound scientific facts and analysis. The process begins with a meeting (can be online or offline) to understand the persons needs, lifestyle, body style, personality….. and then, over a series of sessions, tries to narrow down to the actions/remedies to achieve the desired result. The sessions could be done online or in person, but the process must be followed diligently in order to achieve the proper outcome.
