As an image consultant, you need to plan a focused image makeover for your client and slowly progress towards it by achieving defined milestones over a period of time. Relationship management with the client, media, industry bodies, NGOs, celebrities and political parties are part and ­parcel of the job.

It brings ­together ­multiple facets of fashion ­designing, styling, beauty, grooming, weight management, etiquettes and body language.”
