A fashion consultant is a type of personal image consultant who specializes in wardrobe and makeup improvement. These professionals typically help clients make clothing style choices appropriate to a variety of social situations, including personal and business settings. They often also offer related services, such as closet organization, color and style advice, and shopping tips.
Fashion consultants typically offer expertise on more than just clothing. They often help clients to choose obsequious clothes, jewelry, footwears, and eyewear choices as well. Some may also emphasize a comprehensive fashion design, or overall style, for their clients. These consultants may try to enhance a clients self-esteem by helping him feel both comfortable and confident in his new wardrobe.
Many consultants suggest color choices in their clients fashion selections. They may help a client to determine a color palette that is attractive with his or her skin tone and personal tastes. Also, choosing clothing based on color psychology can help a client make a good impression through clothing.
