Our Industry Defined

“Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes.” Diane Vreeland

The Fashion Industry is exciting to work in! It is big business. There are over 4 million people employed by the fashion industry worldwide and many are working freelance in the industry. Whether in styling, editorial, personal styling, image consulting, digital influencing or just about anything else, the world of fashion is now opening up to just about everyone who wants a share of it.

With all the possibilities, as an image consultant, it is hard to, therefore, see the woods from the trees. From a client perspective, it is also hard to know who is good and who is here today and gone tomorrow.

If it is your dream to succeed in the image or style industry, you need to surround yourself with the right people, the right training, the right supports and the right path.

FIPI help’s you navigate that path.

From Image Consultancy to Personal Styling, Personal Shopping to Personal and Professional Branding, there are many exciting paths you can follow and many training courses you can choose from. Our goal is to help you maximise your potential, to help you choose the right path, to support you in being part of an industry standard and to lead the way for image professionals to achieve their dreams.

We pride ourselves on working with and recommending only professional training courses delivered by industry professionals with a wealth of experience. This is then supported by our membership and continual professional development programme, supporting you every step of your journey.

One of the biggest challenges in the image and styling profession is to continually learn and expand your knowledge. We can provide you with opportunities, tools, resources, an active community and the platform you need to be part of the future of Image and Style for man and woman.
