I am an image consultant. I work mostly with individual clients on their wardrobes. I work with them to simplify and modernize their clothing choices and make their closets work for them. My goal is to have you walk into your closet and not feel overwhelmed by too many clothes, ill fitting clothes or outdated clothing. I always want my clients to feel like they have the appropriate clothing for the many roles they play on a daily basis.

Image & Wardrobe Consulting
Raleigh, Durham, & Chapel Hill
When it comes to style, Claire has earned her rank as a fully realized style expert qualified to teach the many facets of style and image for women and men. Claire has trained with the biggest names in the field of Image Consulting, including Carla Mathis of Body Beautiful, Brenda Kinsel, and Bev Dwane.
She left the corporate world to find a career that would utilize her unique gifts and passions. Image Consulting was a perfect fit as Claire has always had a love for clothing and accessories that goes well beyond the average girl’s affinity for fashion.
Claire has been gifted with a naturally keen eye for lines, colors, and shapes of ladies’ and men's finery and knows how to pair them with a person's lines, colors, and shapes. She knows and values the transformative quality that results from the right pairing.
Word of mouth has lead her into a full time career in putting women and men's wardrobes together from head to toe for all sorts of life style demands. Her closet edits are quick and decisive, but she won’t put a kapeesh on her clients’ emotional attachments, or love for particular garments. After all she’s built a business on helping women and men achieve their best personal expression through their wardrobe, not Claire’s expression of them.
She’s taught numerous workshops that focus on what women love and helped them put their findings into the context of style. She gives women the gift of permission take a moment to even think about what they like. Something most of us don’t do or at least not often.
The process of teaching groups or working one on one has given Claire quite an education in how people think about themselves, their appearance and their self worth. Through the language of style, she has become somewhat of a psychologist (including, but not limited to “body Image “ and self acceptance), as well as a teacher, a friend, and a champion of a variety of women in which no two are exactly alike.
