Image & Etiquette

WHAT IS IMAGE?


Image is how you project yourself, for others to perceive, through your dressing, body language, and mannerisms.


People often judge others in the first few seconds of meeting, and based on this first impression, they form an opinion about the person.


It is therefore; extremely important to project an image that creates a powerful first impression in your personal, professional, and social life.


Many people believe that using the services of fashion designers or luxury brands are ideal solutions for a better image. But, only a trained image consultant can help people dress appropriately to project the right image.


An image consultant works with people in the following areas:

  • Dressing as per body shape and personal colouring and skin tone.
  • Creating a personal style in dressing.
  • Shopping smart, to make the most of every item in your wardrobe.
  • Etiquette, using body language and manners to your advantage.


ETIQUETTE


While clothing seems like the most important aspect of an image consultant's job, body language is an extremely significant mode of communication. An image consultant advises a client on appropriate body language and etiquette, since they are crucial to creating an image. Correct etiquette while communicating, dining, dressing etc. in business and social situations can boost an individual's image.


Twenty-first century etiquette encompasses much more than knowing which fork and knife to use. The demands placed on today's professionals surpass any experienced in the past. The awareness of correct etiquette gives people an edge and boosts their ability to interact with others socially and professionally in a more sensitive manner. Etiquette teaches compassion and increases self-confidence. It is the most important investment with a lifetime of return.


Remember: To be a man, is a matter of birth.

To be a gentleman, is a matter of choice.

Rakhee Gupta, a trained Image Consultant from India and an International Etiquette Consultant from UK, is a soft spoken, gentle woman with ideas that help groom individuals for a smart personality and a lasting good impression. A graduate from Mumbai University, she practised journalism for five years in the print and television media, before giving it up to be a full time mother.


She now conducts programmes on Corporate Etiquette, Finishing Programmes for adults as well as Etiquette Programmes for teenagers and children. She teaches not just the social graces, but also helps individuals build up their confidence and self-esteem, which helps them in interpersonal interactions. Her programmes concentrate on helping the learners create a positive image through appropriate dressing, social etiquettes, the art of conversation and the art of dining. Once learned properly, good manners become lifelong habits helping shape the personality and assisting in the overall development of the individual.

Keeping these difficulties in mind, her programmes for children and teenagers have been specifically designed to not just teach them manners and moral values but also help them adapt and be more accepting of people outside their comfort zone and cultures. The aim is to prepare them to be responsible and well-behaved members of society.

  • "Good manners have much to do with the emotions. To make them ring true, one must feel them, not merely exhibit them" is a quote by Amy Vanderbilt.
    It was only when I met Rakhee, post her training in London, that I felt the need and decided that I too needed to exhibit my good manners. I decided to take a course with her. She taught me simple things like how to walk in your stiletto heels or how to have a clear soup v/s a thick soup, body posture...... In a gist, how to carry yourself. She made the whole process fun to learn. Moreover she explained the importance of all the above in a very simple way. All that I have learnt from her till now has benefitted me a lot and I'm hoping to learn more and more from her.

    • Smita Deo
  • Rakhee's guidance on dressing right has helped me a great deal. Not only I managed to drop 2 sizes with the right clothes, but also learnt the importance of wearing clothes which accentuate the plus points and hide your flaws. She has in-depth knowledge about her subject and a passion for it which comes through. I wish her all the best and am sure she will make a mark in this field for herself.
