Internationally certified image consultant Imogen Lamport AICI CIP created both her image consulting business Bespoke Image
and this blog Inside Out Style with a clear mission – to help people look amazing every day without stress and confusion.
As a former publicist for Penguin Books Australia, Imogen worked with many successful authors. She became fascinated by the issue of image. Was there a connection between image and confidence? How important was image to success? Could she help someone improve their image to gain greater success?
She decided to leave PR to pursue her true passion as an image consultant. She studied clothing, and learned what looked good on different body types. She studied comprehensive colour analysis, and realized how to help people shine with the right shades. She was able to combine her natural talents with extensive training and an almost scientific approach to figure out what worked and why. She started helping people to look and feel amazing.
In early 2004, Imogen started her own business, Bespoke Image. In 2006, her dedication led her to become President of the AICI (Association of Image Consultants International) Australian chapter. She worked tirelessly to raise the industry’s standards of training and professionalism, bringing the AICI’s First Level Certification exam to Australia. In 2007, Imogen was honoured as Chapter Member of the Year, and later, as VP of Communications, she created the chapter’s first website and helped the organization grow substantially.
She is currently VP Fund Development on the international board of the AICI.
In 2009, Imogen was awarded the Certified Image Professional certificate from the AICI, an achievement that acknowledges a highly competent level of training and experience. She is proud to be one of only eight in Australia to have reached this level.
Imogen currently trains people to become image consultants through the Academy of Professional Imag
e in Melbourne, which she runs with her business partner Clare Maxfield AICI CIP. She also conducts workshops for retail optometrists, and works with cancer patients through the wonderful Look Good Feel Better
But it is her work with her clients that gives Imogen the most pleasure. Through workshops, corporate events, media appearances, colour consultations, and personal shopping services, she shares her considerable knowledge with everyone from stay-at-home moms to corporate executives. Imogen wants to help you get dressed, get out the door, and get on with life.
Imogen’s Building a Blog to Build Your Business webinar was fantastic! She over-delivered and exceeded my expectations by offering great content and numerous online resources that I could immediately implement to increase my business growth. Through her interactive teaching style she kept me on the edge of my seat, highly engaged and entertained. I’d highly recommend this course to anyone looking to either start or enhance their current blogging style to attract different revenue streams. She’s an awesome role model for all of us follow to learn secrets to blogging success. Thanks Imogen, for a wonderful opportunity to learn from the blogging master!

I attended my first Nuffnang Blogpolis and I was a little ambivalent about what it might provide me with – as a very part time blogger and passionate freelancer I found that the first session, run by Imogen, gave me the best of both worlds. She was engaging, confident and clear about the ways in which people can create content that will attract readers, keep them engaged and then prompt them to comment – the holy grail of the blogging world! The suggestions not only provided suggestions for my blog but it helped me refine some pitches that I had been working on that weren’t quite catchy enough for me to send them out with confidence. Thanks for a great introduction to the world of engaging content Imogen! Sarah Wayland www.thatspaceinbetween.com
