Hello! My name is Aileen and I am the founder and lead consultant at Lane Image Consulting.
I want to tell you a story about how having my colours done changed my life. I wasn’t always an image consultant you see. Prior to becoming a colour and style expert, I worked in the food industry for many years and not in a glamorous part like sales or something but down on the production floor. I wore a white uniform, a blue net cap and safety shoes everyday and I can tell you none of those colours worked for me! One day, the infant formula company I worked for brought in an image consultant to talk about the difference colour made to our appearance. The image consultant lady brought a few volunteers up to the top of the room and demonstrated the difference wearing the right colours made to how attractive and healthy you look. I was very, very taken with the idea and decided to change my career there and then. Now if you know me, this was rather a big jump to take as I had a very solid career and had been progressing nicely up the corporate ladder. However, I was bored to death and felt I was missing out on the fun things in life. In March 2006, I opened the doors to my image consulting business in Singapore, and I have seen first hand how colour and style transforms the lives of women over the years. I have seen over and over again that women are more confident when they wear flattering clothes and as a result are much braver to go out there and get more of what you want!
