“Trends come and go, but developing a personal style that flatters your own essence and lifestyle is the key to create a memorable image.”
Although it’s not usually something we like to hear, first impressions really do matter, primarily because the external cues you send out help others formulate an opinion of you at first glance. enter marisol Gomez, Image Consultant & Fashion stylist extraordinaire. “my passion in life is to help individuals find their inner essence by coaching them on how to best show it to the world through their personal image,” she says. “the key to being successful in life is to love who you are, and to have a very clear picture of what you really want.” today, Gomez spends her time balancing private and corporate clients in miami and new York City, where she works for the Image resource Center of new York, one of the pioneering image consulting firms worldwide. “I’m looking forward to continuing to build my business while helping my clients take their personal and professional style to the next level.”
Her favorite alcoholic accessory is an apple martini. “It goes with anything,” she says.
Realizing that diet and image go hand-in-hand, she’s trying to go organic. “But I still love my dulce de leche pankcakes!”
Her mantra is from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross: “Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose…there are no mistakes, no coincidences…all events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
