Choose from either classroom or online training – whichever suits your needs.

The growth of makeover shows on TV has started a huge wave of interest in self improvement, so there has never been a better time to study as an image consultant or fashion stylist.

Having a personal stylist is no longer a luxury service exclusively for the rich and famous. Every day more and more people from all backgrounds see the benefits that a makeover can bring to their self confidence and success. Now more than ever before young and older women (and men) are actively looking for someone to help them with their personal transformation.

They may want to improve their career or business opportunities, they may be looking for new romance or they might be trying to change their dated image and improve their self esteem. Some people simply want to save money because they’ve wasted so much over the years on outfits which are wrong for their shape and colouring.

Whatever their underlying motivation, there’s nothing more rewarding than helping someone with a personal transformation, I can tell you!


The course content is first class. Every concept is clearly and thoroughly explained. There is enough material in this program to help you start your business. You have ongoing  access to  Imogen long after you finish the course, and I guarantee you’ll go back through the materials again and again — they’re chock full and yes, they’re that good.  Imogen’s undying patience, openness, and availability is absolutely impressive.

It was the best decision I could possibly make and I urge you to take a big leap of faith and jump right in – you will not have any regrets.

I have had the great pleasure of being trained as an image consultant by Imogen Lamport, and of still regularly receiving her generous instruction via monthly webinars.

 I chose training with Imogen after researching numerous image consultant training agencies, and concluding that her Academy of Professional Image had by far the most thorough and scientific approach to the whole issue of personal colour analysis. I was not surprised therefore, that Imogen herself was very thorough in her approach to training: she provides the student with an enormous amount of knowledge, well thought-out exercises and all the tools necessary to set up business as an image consultant.

I have met few teachers this willing to impart what know-how they have. Imogen truly aims to arm the student, the client, the blog reader, everyone really, with the knowledge they need to make a difference, whether it be in their personal wardrobe, their career opportunities or their business endeavours.
