Every company objective is unique and a generic solution will not always suffice. Caitlin possesses a range of connections within the fashion and image industries and has resources readily available to ensure that your professional needs are met in a cost effective and timely manner.
The corporate dress is changing. In past times an Image Consultant was engaged to speak to company employees on how to dress for the workplace, effective personal grooming and provide style guidelines to adhere to. As workplaces are becoming increasingly more casual a modern and flexible approach is essential and it is safe to say we would be laughed out of the room if we tried this in todays market!
So why engage a Stylist for your organisation?

Caitlin offers corporate image seminars with a modern edge. We don't tell people how to dress anymore, we offer suggestions on how they can elevate their look and feel empowered in an ever-changing and competitive industry. Workplace culture is becoming increasingly more relaxed and there is a need to adopt a fresh approach in corporate image consulting, especially with many now working from home.
Caitlin's workshops offer a high energy, interactive approach whilst being informative and targeted to your needs.
All content is customised to the individual organisation, company vision and brand. Whether it's an offsite team building exercise with a fashion focus or a complete workforce seeking to elevate their current look, Caitlin and her team have you covered.
Caitlin's seminars are entertaining and engaging yet offer practical information aimed to assist with professional dress and company branding. The workshops are interactive and adopt a 'hands on' approach, which encourages team building through interaction, whilst demanding audience attention.

Corporate Dress Policy Review
In recent times many organisations have been under increased pressure via team members to review their corporate dress policy. Most professions come with a uniform or corporate dress policy guideline. Uniforms ensure everyone looks cohesive in the same attire and are important in many professions, whereas a corporate dress policy aims to achieve a similar appearance between employees or team members providing an "on brand" and cohesive look.
One of the main objectives of having a corporate dress policy is to bring a consistency to the workplace and a recognisable brand to those externally. The policy is normally created by the HR Department in conjunction with other managers with the input of other team members, however having a consultant conduct an independent review can be thorough and effective.
Caitlin utilises a several step process which involves conducting qualitative and quantitative research with team members and making styling recommendations based on these findings. Once the final design concept is approved she then develops a creative means of delivering the project to the wider team via an event or online activation.
Caitlin can source external suppliers or make use of companies internal recourses as a cost effective solution. Caitlin will also liaise with external uniform suppliers and manage the design process if required.
Corporate Styling Events
More often than not an organisation is on point when it comes to corporate and professional image. Team members don't want or need to be told how to dress, however some fun suggestions from a seasoned Stylist are always welcomed and rejoiced!
In this instance a corporate style event can be a great way to showcase the key season trends in fashion, provide some fun tips and hints on what is upcoming for the season and give back to those team members who have been working hard all year. A corporate style event can take the form of a fashion parade or workshop, interactive style session or activity based team building exercise. The key objective of these events is to become inspired and have some FUN!
