“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.” Rebekah Floyd, Arizona USA
