Here’s an overview of how we can help…

Here at the IASC, our focus is on empowering you with the skills you need to turn your passion for styling into a profitable business. We help put you in front of your target audience and make it easy for them to connect with you.

We also help to enhance your professional credibility and project an excellent first impression as an image professional. Overcoming self-doubt allows you to embrace new business opportunities and create them too!

Becoming a Member of the IASC will showcase your professional credibility, increase trust in your personal styling and coaching services, and give you the confidence boost you need if you’re going to reach your full potential.

Many image consultants are talented when it comes to their styling work, but they may not have the fundamental business skills needed to transform their passion into profit. That’s why our Monthly Business Masterclasses and Webinars have been specifically designed to develop our members into modern entrepreneurs who understand the steps to start earning a living doing the work they love.

Our community mentors are award-winning entrepreneurs themselves, so they can guide you with first-hand experience and decades of expert knowledge specific to the personal styling industry. When you’ve got questions about your career, there’s no better experts to offer you support.

Being an entrepreneur can feel lonely and isolating at times, so one of the most rewarding aspects about being part of the IASC family is that you can connect and create friendships with new and experienced Style Coaches™, personal stylists, personal shoppers and image consultants from all around the world!

We offer an exclusive Facebook group where you can join in conversations and get plenty of answers to your questions, big and small! You don’t have to struggle on your own now you’ve found your tribe.

We’re here to help you decide on a client’s colour season or body shape, swap ideas about what has worked in our personal styling businesses, offer second opinions on each other’s new websites, logos or social media pages… Or help you come up with solutions to whatever challenges you’re facing in your styling business.

We’re your ‘behind-the-scenes’ support and we know your career inside and out, because personal styling and Style Coaching™ is our passion too! The IASC can be a compass to guide you, inspiration for you to reach new heights, and a safe space for you to learn and grow.

So come and make yourself at home in our vibrant community. We lean in to offer support and encouragement to each other, we listen and share ideas, we understand each other, we figure things out and we overcome our fears. Together, we thrive… and you can too!

Raise your Status & Gain Credibility

Many personal stylists can experience self-doubt which limits their courage to go after new business opportunities, explore potential areas of interest, and put themselves out there in a meaningful way. Becoming an Affiliate or Accredited Member of the IASC gives you an opportunity to showcase your professional credibility and it also helps to change the way you feel about your own professional status and to demonstrate the pride you take in your work.

IASC membership is an asset you can feel proud of, helping you to project a great first impression. When you use the IASC designation (the letters MIASC after your name), you’re able to boost your personal brand by displaying an international badge of professionalism that sets you apart from your competition. You’re also inspiring confidence and trust!

As a member of the IASC, you can use an exclusive Membership Logo on your website and marketing materials, and request a Membership Certificate to proudly display alongside your styling qualifications. Don’t forget you can also be included on our ‘Find a Stylist’ interactive map, which will help potential styling clients in your area to find you and avail of your personal styling services.

  1. Quotes from our Members

    “I just logged into the IASC Members Portal to watch the Masterclasses and found the one on Business Mapping very interesting and so useful to my personal styling business. The Mapping idea is such a good way to break everything down into branches to gradually form and build the whole picture - also printable, so really good to go back for reference and reassurance. I was also so surprised how much of an impact Video Marketing can actually have on a business audience. I take lots of notes during the classes and aim to put a few things to the test each month. Kate has a very interesting and warm voice to listen to!”
    Jacqueline McDonald
  1. Quotes from our Members

    “Since I was a little girl, I always had a passion for fashion, beauty and style, but I followed the "shoulds" instead of my heart. I got myself a "safe" corporate job. But all along, I knew this was not what I wanted to do... Through my search for a more fulfilling and joyful life, I discovered a brave new world of self-development and trained as a Style Coach™ in the process. I finally leapt from the corporate ladder & started my own business. Since then, I've been coaching people develop their image and personal brand. So here I am! This is my chance to gain much-needed specialised knowledge in the field that I'm most passionate about.”
