What’s an Image Consultation?
Welcome to Global Image Group
We work with clients globally and virtually to meet your image consultation needs as a certified Image Consultant NYC, Personal Stylist NYC, and Personal Shopper NYC.
What is the difference between an Image Consultant NYC, Personal Stylist NYC, and Personal Shopper NYC?
Our image consultants work with ambitious entrepreneurs, C-Level, executive management, and middle management professionals across all industries to define and refine the image they project based on scientific aspects of style – aka. an executive image consultant. We evaluate your current projected image through your appearance, behavior, and communication styles versus your desired projected image to craft a cultivated image which ultimately should exude authority, trust, credibility, and authenticity for leadership positions. During this image consultation we also address your assets and challenges in order to develop your unique personal brand image.
Possible Image Challenges & Obstacles and Our Solutions
Imagine you’re a blond hair, blue-eyed petit woman who is laser sharp however internal and external stakeholders do not take you seriously. Or perhaps you’re a tall man with dark hair and pale skin with chiseled facial features. Your first impression is unapproachable, however you’re actually an affable guy. These are just two examples where an image consultant could step in to define your style personality and refine your image to achieve your desired personal brand image. After our image consultants provide you with an executive image and style analysis, aka. a Personal Style Analysis, she becomes your personal stylist.
We have a personal stylist NYC, personal stylist DC, and personal stylist Dubai to assist you with your wardrobe styling needs and closet cleanout. This part of the consultation is called a Wardrobe and Closet Analysis. During this session, your personal stylist will perform a closet edit and she will also be a fashion consultant in your closet by helping you shop your closet to create new outfits that you never would have thought of. She will help you determine what you should keep, toss, and donate in alignment with your goals. Then she will become your personal shopper NYC.
As your personal shopper, she would have developed a list of what you need to buy and should buy in order to transform you into the image you want to project. Some of these changes are made through the types of colors, textures, and patterns that you wear and how you combine them to develop your personal brand image. Therefore, our personal shoppers shop with a strategy and intention in order for you to accomplish your image and style goals.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT our image consultations
…I reached out to Michelle again 8 years later in 2019. It was definitely worth my time and money to spend 1.5 days with her in New York to refresh and replenish my wardrobe. Since our last session 2 years ago, I have worked with her using the SHOP + SHIP + STYLE virtual styling service to add new items to my wardrobe as well as beach vacation clothes. As always, I love what she picks for me… Read more “Brent’s Testimonial”
…Since then, we moved to the L.A. area. And she’s done the same process for me in L.A. and Orange County, maneuvering through my weight changes from size 12 to 2 and stabilizing at size 8/10…difficult for us to sync up our schedules, so she started working with me virtually. I’ve been using her SHOP+SHIP+STYLE virtual styling service for the last 5 years to fill in the gaps in my wardrobe and for vacations. I did try Nordstrom’s Trunk Club for a bit, but I canceled it… Read more “Katie’s Testimonial”
Working with Michelle is definitely an investment, but a good one…the reason why I continue to work with her is because I only get compliments when I’m wearing the outfits that SHE picks. It’s been 3 years since my first consultation with her and I scheduled a follow-up half-day personal shopping session with her because who doesn’t like compliments? I think I’ll schedule a virtual closet edit with her next. Read more “Karen’s Testimonial”
Michelle is really great with colors. I definitely recommend getting a personal style analysis with her to review your colors. In fact she’s so good with color she help me defined the color scheme of my home, the color scheme of my business brand identity, as well as my best colors for my own personal brand. She put colors together in my wardrobe that I would’ve never put together, but it looks great! Read more “David’s Testimonial”
Going through an online closet edit and virtual wardrobe styling session with Michelle was cathartic. She helped decide which items I should release to simplify my wardrobe and my life…I had a $2000 budget for clothes shopping, however we only spent $1350. Michelle was amazing about selecting stylish clothes that made me look current and put together within my budget. Read more “Michelle’s Testimonial”
