Graduate feedback about this course: 

I am a graduate with an engineering degree after which I went on to engineer people’s clothes and personal styles. With a family background invested in garment exports, it was no surprise that my passion was elegantly altered into the fashion industry. For the last seven years I have steered my Men’s fashion store as their style and fashion Director. With this experience I wanted to enhance my specialization and that’s how I landed myself at the Fashion Stylist Institute.com for a Certified Men's Image Consulting Course. I wanted to get a formal introduction/education on Image Consulting and what better than Gillian Armour's Certified Male Image Consultant Certification. Before this experience, I could say that I was ‘A Sheep without a Sheppard’. I had no understanding on how to go about with a consultation, although my years of experience helped me address clients. GA’s CMIC program taught me at a very concise and practical way to carry forward my consulting business. Armed with a portfolio of services for men's image consulting and the tailoring experience, I am able to package and present myself better. Furthermore, I think I am from those lucky few who managed to experience the new Ipad version with an interactive module. This helped me understand the manual better and more illustratively. Your presentation was crystal clear, leaving me with no doubt in my mind. Your certification has given me a formal introduction to men’s clothing and how to present myself to my clients. I now make a conscious effort with my etiquette, dressing style and non verbal communications. The ABCD of Image Consulting! Osman Razak, Certified Men's Image Consultant, India


For quite some time, I had been going through the various courses on image consultancy which are available online but the vast majority dedicated just a small portion of the syllabus to male clients. You can imagine how happy I was to come across the male image consultant course. It had the right mix of elements I was looking for - focus on male clients, comprehensive, and not too expensive. I found the content to be concise and to the point, and indeed very helpful. I would have liked more style tips in relation to the different body shapes but a lot of information is available on the net, so this was not much of a problem. Thank you for providing the course. I now feel confident enough to launch my services as a male image consultant. Best regards, Ludwig S., Malta


This is my second time utilizing your Institute for Image Consulting services and I must say once again it was a thorough experience that will definitely set me apart as a professional Male Image Consultant. The portal is very user-friendly, the course modules are very detailed with course information that is easy to understand, the response rate of professors are expedite and the amount of time given to finish the course is just right. There is no doubt that any potential or prospective student will leave this course well educated to the magnitude that they can use the skills independently or in their business. I have a few requests for Male Consulting even before I started this course and I am very confident that since the completion of this course, my knowledge and execution of a Male Consultation will be way beyond that of a store sales clerk. I am grateful for such a hard working and amazing opportunity and look forward to other courses with the Fashion Stylist Institute. Kind Regards, Atarah Samaroo,  Certified Image Consultant, Owner of A.
