Course Graduate Testimonials
"I want to thank Dr. Joyce Knudsen for creating the wardrobe course and making it available a distance course. With my certificate I will be able to service clients in Canada and am very happy about that. Being able to utilize the information from the wardrobe course, I plan to perfect my skills that I have just learned. I must now become familiar with current styles and what each store caters to so that I can help my clients to the best of my ability. I am the most pleased about learning how color impacts your look and how to determine what color is right for you. I am also happy about learning how to balance the body with the use of clothes. With this information I feel that I am ready to assist people and make them look great. Thank you, Dr. Joyce."
Having spent the last thirty years building my career, raising my children, and working on personal growth and development issues, I began to consider the possibility of retirement from my current position as a trial attorney. Searching for a new look, free from “power suits”, I realized I did not have a clue as what to choose for an over age 55 woman who wanted a “classy” mature look. I began my search using books and the internet, and discovered Dr. Joyce Knudsen of The ImageMaker Inc.®
The primary reason for my choosing to work with Dr. Knudsen was the fact that she recognizes the need for one to first work on one’s inner issues (self esteem, self confidence etc.) before attempting to change one’s outer appearance. (In my opinion, the old adage “clothes do not make the (wo)man” is very true.) Working with Dr. Knudsen was a delightful and uplifting experience. After taking several self-discovery profiles, I was able to validate what I already knew about myself, as well as to identify those areas in which more growth was possible.
These profiles also gave Dr. Knudsen information to assist her in understanding who I am and what I am about, and therefore she was better able to advise me on both my inner work and my outer appearance. Words cannot do justice to the experience of going shopping for clothing, shoes, accessories, etc., with Dr. Knudsen along to advise you as to what would work best for you. Picture this - you enter a shop with Dr. Knudsen, and within minutes, she is perusing racks of clothing, choosing a pair of pants here, a blouse there, and then shoes, purses, etc. from the other side of the shop, and seemingly within a matter of minutes, she has chosen the perfect outfit to transform you from “staid and matronly” to “classy and sassy” (not to mention her ability to locate very good bargains along the way!). Dr. Knudsen covered all bases with me - hairstyle, makeup, eye/sun glasses, clothing and accessories, and she left no stone unturned in an attempt to obtain what would work best for the look I wanted to achieve.
All one needs to do, and be, is a willing student, as Dr. Knudsen is both a caring and energetic teacher. If you are prepared to give your best effort on becoming all you can be, Dr. Knudsen will be there to guide and support you, cheering you on all the way. I am learning that one can choose to approach the 55+ years in a variety of ways. For me, bring on the obligatory gold retirement watch, but make mine "classy, yet sassy"!!

For the past few years, I have been in a state of transition precipitated by a divorce after 15 years of marriage and the death of my daughter. I am also moving from a student role to a faculty position at a local university. Before all this happened, I had not paid too much attention to my appearance. I was raising 2 children alone, going to school, working part-time, and my life was very hectic. On many mornings, I would just grab whatever clothes were clean, put my hair in a ponytail and head out the door in sweats or jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers. Like many mothers, I put the needs of my children first and felt I had no time for clothes shopping, manicures or make-up lessons.
Then my life changed and these changes made me reexamine my priorities. I realized that I wanted to be my authentic self (who I had become as a result of my experiences) not who I once was in another life that didn’t work out the way I had planned. I wanted to see this new “self” reflected back to me when I looked in the mirror. I knew that my life was not over because I was divorced, had lost 1 child and the other was almost grown. I still had something to contribute to the world beyond the raising of children, and I had become stronger, more resilient and more compassionate as a result of my experiences
I met a new man on the internet, and he also saw that there was a disconnect between who I was and how I presented myself to the world. He encouraged me to start exploring the images in fashion, travel and photography magazines to see what appealed to me and I started putting them together in collages. Focusing on the beauty that still exists in this world and what I was attracted to became a form of healing for me. It soon became apparent that the images of women and clothing that I found appealing did not look at all like me. I had none of the clothes in my closet, had not worn make-up in years, and hardly ever styled my hair. I realized that I had no clue about how to transform myself on the outside into what I felt I had become on the inside. So I decided to look for an image consultant in Nashville, and found Joyce on the internet. Joyce helped me bring what I saw in the collages into my reality.
I brought her all my clothes and she sorted them very quickly into 3 categories, clothes to toss out, clothes that were salvageable with some minor redesign work, and a very small pile of clothes to keep the way they were. Then we went shopping. In a very small amount of time, Joyce was able to help me choose contemporary clothes for my new life, suits for presentations and conferences and somewhat toned down “sex and the city” type clothes for dates on the town with my boyfriend as well as jewelry and accessories. We chose several basic colors for my wardrobe, hot pink, black and white, and several outfits that could be mixed and matched with these colors. Now I no longer have a whole closet full of clothes with nothing to wear for a date on the town or a presentation. She also helped me with make-up and hair styles that flatter my face and features. I am a bit of a pack-rat and it was great to have permission to toss out all my old make-up and more than half the clothes in my closet and to buy new stuff!
I believe that how people face the challenges that confront them in life will help them know who they really are. I knew that I had grown and changed as a result of my experiences, and Joyce helped me reflect those changes in how I present myself to the world. I would highly recommend Joyce to anyone who seriously wants to make themselves over from the inside out.
