"There is nothing else that I could share with any other woman - younger or older - that would be more loving, instructive, or life-changing!"
If you ever wondered if you could combine your gift of encouragement, along with your love for fashion and teach other women how to see themselves the way God does, then becoming a Christian Image Consultant may be for you.
Shari Braendel developed the CIC Training Course when God prompted her to train up other women to do what she does. “Each time I would step off a stage, someone would approach me and tell me they never knew they could combine fashion and faith to reach others for Christ.”
And so the CIC Training Course was born in 2010 and we’ve had 62 women graduate from the course.
Email Shari@FashionMeetsFaith.com and have a conversation with her about whether or not this is for you. She loves hearing from you! Each class is limited to 15 students and there is a June and November class in 2015.
3 Day Course
Overview and Scripture Reference Guide
Combining Fashion and Faith is a unique endeavor. As a Christian Image Consultant your presentations are grounded in scripture so we kick off our training taking a look at the Bible to help you find the best scriptures to use for your ministry.
Color is the cornerstone of image consulting and may be the most difficult part to master. Through her in-depth studies and years of makeup and fashion experience, Shari has refined color analysis by dominant color characteristics. You will be guided through the rules and work on developing a discerning eye for color as you spend time learning in class and on real women.
Body Shapes and Proportion
Rules of proportion in clothing begin with identifying 'body type' or shape. You will learn the specific guidelines for Shari's BOD-X system and be able to correlate and advise clothing styles for each body type. You will also learn vertical lines and column dressing, camouflage techniques, as well as slimming tips.
Frame Size and Accessorizing
You'll learn how to revamp your client's accessories style based on Shari's Rock Star, Glamour Girl, and Movie Star system.
Personal Shopping/Style Parties
Understanding essential wardrobe pieces and the fundamentals of shopping for a client will make you a pro as a professional shopper. You will learn the pieces no woman can, or should, live without and how to choose pieces that compliment an existing or growing wardrobe. You will be taught how to conduct Style Parties and Personal Style Appointments.
Stage Presence and Delivery Style
How you present yourself is one of the most important aspects of a Christian Image Consultant. Not only on stage, but in everything you do. We will cover the basics of stage presentation and teach you how to weave in your testimony so you bring glory to God in this ministry of fashion and faith.
Market Your Message
Since we live in a world of technology, you will learn to market your message by using social media and your website to your best advantage.
Business Tools, Goals and Setting Your Fees
We'll help you set goals, set fees for your new ministry and give you forms you can use for duplication so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
