Module 1: Personal Colour Analysis Theory – this module is a prerequisite to complete Module 2

Module 2: Personal Colour Analysis Draping Practical – this module INCLUDES your colour drapes and swatches plus VIRTUAL drapes so you can do colour analysis in person and online

“I have loved fashion since I was little and wooden clogs were fashionable the first time.  I enjoyed the color, the creativity, the expression of Fashion.  I saw dressing as an art not just a necessity, but as the ultimate place to make a statement.

I knew what field I wanted to work in “when I grew up”, Fashion Design.  I had an innate ability and could style decently and create better outfits most of the time.  Yet, I did not know the “why”-the how it all came together.  I started researching, looking for someone to train me in Color Analysis and Style in the early 2000’s.  I found no one.

Fast forward 18 years and I found Imogen Lamport and AOPI.  I found all the things I had been looking for and more: a Certified Image Professional, knowledgeable in her field, an innovator in this field and an excellent teacher.  The content of each lesson and each course is thorough.  Each lesson builds on the next.  My knowledge, understanding and ability increased substantially.

Imogen teaches information that is pertinent to the Image Consultant field of work in an understandable way.  I appreciated how each lesson included video and book explanations of each topic. The in person classroom training in Chicago was integral and allowed me to practice all of the coursework information I had learned.  Walking step by step through each process with Imogen allowed me to see it work and ask any questions I had before heading out on my own.  I so appreciated being able to do practice runs with clients with Imogen there to help and guide.  She was very good at letting me go but being there with wisdom and insight if I needed it.

I opened my Image Consulting business and enter each appointment prepared, knowledgeable and able to engage each client in an individual way.  I have made huge gains in Image Consulting that I attribute to the quality of the courses I took with Imogen Lamport and AOPI.  Everyone I meet comments on how knowledgeable and established I am in my field.  They see me as being pertinent and a holder of valuable information.  This is largely due to Imogen Lamport’s online training and courses through AOPI.  I am enjoying my Image Consulting path and I feel I am on good ground starting with Imogen Lamport and AOPI.”

“I found the online Personal Colour Analysis and Practical Draping Training Courses to be very comprehensive and easy to follow. The courses offered so much more than I expected, covering the principles of colour theory, the psychology of colours and how to put it all together.

The training materials were easy to follow, giving me a clear understanding of the colour principles and colour draping. The assignments helped reinforce what I had learned.

I am a lifelong learner and update my skills and expertise regularly. I found Imogen to be extremely knowledgeable and an expert in Colour Principles and Personal Styling, she really does know her profession. The online one on one draping sessions were comprehensive, giving me the skills, knowledge and confidence to conduct colour consultations. She gave her time willingly, I never felt rushed and she worked with me until I understood what I needed to know. Nothing is too much trouble.

I look forward to continuing my professional development with the Academy of Professional Image with Imogen as my mentor.

I would recommend Imogen to all persons considering any training at her Academy”.

Jo Puplett, Adelaide, South Australia

“I have recently had the opportunity to take Imogen’s Women’s Advanced Style and Colour Courses. These courses were both incredibly rich and comprehensive in their content and Imogen’s style of teaching is clear and practical. Putting the knowledge to work through constructive exercises consolidated the material and Imogen’s feedback was always helpful. I feel equipped to work successfully with clients and assist them thoughtfully and skillfully with their personal colours and style.

I attended the Colour and Style Practical where I benefited tremendously from Imogen’s generous input and help through the sessions. Her balance of guiding and giving assistance while also stepping back and putting us in the driver’s seat gave me a lot of confidence to feel ready to move forward with my own business. Her continued guidance through the mentoring calls and assignments has also been tremendously helpful.

The training I received from Imogen is excellent and her input as a teacher has always been generous, clear and helpful. I would highly recommend her courses”.
