What is a fashion consultant? I’m Michaela Leitz a professional stylist and tell you today what a fashion consultant is doing.
A fashion consultant is someone who helps you dress your best for any occasion. They will help you put together outfits that make you look and feel your best. Why do you need one? Because not everyone knows how to put together an outfit that looks great and makes them feel confident. A fashion consultant can help with that!
Fashion Consultant Job Description
A fashion consultant’s job is to help their clients put together the best possible outfits for any occasion. This might mean picking out clothes, accessories, and shoes that go well together. It could also mean advising on what colors or styles to wear. Fashion consultants often work with people who are getting ready for a special event, like a wedding or corporate event. But a fashion consultant is also helping you in your day-to-day outfits and teaching you which colors and fits are working best for you.
So, if you’re not sure what to wear or how to put an outfit together, a fashion consultant is the perfect person for you! They can help take the guesswork out of getting dressed and teach you how to dress in a way that makes you look and feel your best.
Helping the fashion industry
As a successful fashion consultant, it’s not only my job to be a personal shopper. I do also fashion consulting for industry professionals as a department store to help improve the retail environment for their clients. As to increase sales for the company, present current trends, seasonal trends, and assist customers to improve their fashion sense.
One of my biggest skills is to help constantly changing fashion companies and fashion designers to become size-inclusive. As a plus-size fashion stylist and image consultant, I am here to represent plus-size women.
Why I became a Fashion consultant
I became a fashion consultant because I love helping people feel confident in their own skin. When you know how to dress your best, it can change your whole outlook on life. Not to mention, it’s really fun to experiment with different styles and find what looks great on you! If you’re looking for someone who can help you put together the best possible outfits, a fashion consultant is a perfect person for you.
I made the decision when I became a plus size woman
I have been a size 0 for so many years, but when I became a plus size woman it hit me in the face. As there was almost no fashion advice out there for bigger-sized women.
Fashion trends are mostly catered to skinny or normal-sized women, fashion merchandising too. I felt terrible and my style was awful as of the lack of variety of clothing and style.
How to become a fashion consultant
If you’re interested in becoming a fashion consultant, there are a few things you can do to get started.

If you’re passionate about fashion and helping others look their best, then a career as a fashion consultant may be perfect for you!
Fashion Consultants work in many different industries, but most commonly in the retail, consulting or fashion industry.
Where does a fashion consultant work?
Most fashion consultants are self-employed, which means they work independently with clients. Some may work for a specific company, such as a department store or clothing retailer. Others may freelance and take on multiple clients at one time.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to what a fashion consultant does. It depends on the specific needs of each client. However, some common duties include giving fashion advice, helping people select clothing, and teaching people how to put together outfits.
A fashion consultant may also work with businesses to improve their retail environment or help increase sales. In addition, they may help fashion designers or companies become more size-inclusive.

Unfortunately, there are still not many brands and designers who are size inclusive which is a shame. The size inclusive fashion industry is still an untapped market. I am here to help the industry to become inclusive and to help my clients and future clients to shop like every other woman does!
What is your reason?
