This weekend I’m in Sydney at the AICI Australian conference. On Friday I flew up early in the morning then spent the day doing 2 makeovers with two ”clients” with two other image consultant observers, watching the process and learning about the way I work. There will be blog posts and photos to come!
Today we had a session on business development, one on reading clothes and the origins of clothing styles – according to the reserach of the speaker – did you know that the reason that nuns wear black is that single women were not allowed out alone, so a couple of nuns in France figured out that if they wore ‘widows weeds’ they would be able to move freely about in society. This allowed them greater freedom to do their work.
Tomorrow is a session on fashion trends which will be fantastic.
