Thank you so much for coming to the office last week. You certainly increased the awareness of image and I am seeing small, but significant changes.
There is an obvious improvement with how people present themselves and pay attention to detail.
(I have since seen a lot high heels around the building and overheard conversations about who has more ‘swag’ and style.) Make-up is a bit of a weakness which we still have, and a touchy subject to address, but it at least gives us food for thought for future work.
You had a difficult task to address various ages, cultures, body types and genders and you gave us a fantastic presentation. I would recommend all corporates to do the same. There is more value in your presentation than taking staff to lunch to boost morale and confidence. Image and dressing appropriately is a universal interest, especially to ladies.
Overall, I think you made the biggest contribution in terms of boosting the individual awareness and confidence of staff members. Your advice is truly valued.
Thank you once again.

My husband should be writing this as he has experienced first hand the transformation to my closet and to me most importantly, after we completed the whole make-over process. I am so glad that he bought the "invest in you" package as a birthday treat.
From our very first meeting you were so approachable and made me feel so at ease and comfortable in my own skin. You diplomatically explained the areas where I needed to improve to maximise my positive attributes.
As a stay at home mom, I wasn't taking the time to put more effort into my daily wardrobe choices and had really fallen into a rut, with always choosing to wear the clothes I had been comfortable in for years! The wardrobe detox/audit would have been quiet daunting, as we can be very sentimental about our clothes, especially after holding onto them for so long. Your gentle approach to the "detox" suggestions suited me perfectly, and really gave me the confidence to even go beyond your suggestions and make my own "detox" decisions.
Clothes shopping was almost always for the kids, so having a personal stylist and my husbands credit card (with a budget) for 3 hours was quiet daunting for me. This was changed by the enthusiasm and passion you demonstrated, in ensuring I made the most of the experience. The shopping trip turned into easily 4+ hours, as your enthusiasm was contagious, yet you always made sure we were within budget and were conscious of the purchases that were been made.
You have left me with the enthusiasm to shop more for myself, and the confidence that I am making the correct choices when doing so.
The overall experience with you is one I can highly recommend and wish I could do every year!
Wishing you all the success going forward. I truly believe your passion will do that for you.
I want to thank you again for the most fabulous image consulting session. You handled our group of 180 employees with such ease, passion and professionalism.
Everyone loved the session and I received the most wonderful feedback.
I will absolutely recommend your services to anyone looking for the services of an image consultant.
Tracey I absolutely loved every minute I spent with you, the best birthday present ever! Not only was it loads of fun, but it was also extremely useful and beneficial. I now have a much better idea of what does and doesn't suit me. Everything you said made perfect sense, I just couldn't see it before.
I loved your honesty, and so appreciated the fact that you didn't just throw out all my clothes in my wardrobe, but tried to help me work with what I had. Definitely would like you back to help sort out my winter wardrobe!
Meeting Tracey and going through the colour coding session and a mini style session has been a life changer. What i loved about Tracey is her warmth, human touch to the whole process... You don't feel like this is a system.
I admit that before i arrived, I was worried she was going to change me into someone i was not. That was not the case at all. What i loved most is that she takes the time to get to know you as a person, and then helps you embrace your uniqueness.
When i walked out of my session with Tracey, I felt whole. I loved how she took my religious beliefs, my personal dress style, and turned it into something i felt thoroughly comfortable in. I am definitely more confident, which in turn has improved my profession presence.
In my personal opinion, every working woman owes herself a consult such as this. Think about it, to get a drivers licence you have to take lessons in order to pass the test. Same with your appearance, we only look as good as we feel. It helps to know how to match your clothes, what colours work best with your skin, as well as your dress style.
Once you have been for a consult, you will pass the test in making a positive impression with your appearance.
Tracey de Kock, Owner of SA Image KZN and qualified Image Consultant, held a fun and engaging session with our ladies on what it means to dress for success and body type.
Her delivery was professional, she gave fantastic advice and we just loved the time that we had with her. I will definitely get Tracey to come back to address the rest of our Ladies and I have no doubt that the ones who had an opportunity to listen to her the first time around will want to join in for a second round.
Thanks Tracey, we definitely feel far better informed about what and what not to wear.

I’m quite sad that our time together has come to an end. On so many levels I have had a most enjoyable and enlightening experience. Aside from the fact that I have learnt a great deal about my “real” body size, shape and colouring your great sense of humour and honesty has been fun and refreshing.
What really appealed to me initially about this process is that it is not based on one person’s ideas of fashion or their personal likes or dislikes. The approach is rather scientific and the results are based solely on each individual’s measurements. So armed with “My Personal Stylist” one is still allowed a reasonable amount of freedom of expression as long as one maintains the ground rules.
The colour coding has been hugely valuable and very quickly highlighted why even though I loved certain items in my wardrobe (styles, cuts, and details) I just never wore them.
Together with this and your sometimes ruthless but always honest approach we were able to clear out my dull, mostly ill-fitting, packed to the brim cupboard (to a mere skeleton might I add).
The shopping experience was superb and it was the first time that I have ever bought clothes with my body shape, colouring and the rest of my wardrobe in mind. (a responsible clothes shopper – who would have thought?). I cannot tell you how much money this is going to save my husband and I am delighted to finally be wearing every item of clothing in my cupboard in a variety of combinations that are fresh, stylish and comfortable. Half the clothes and easily double the options if not more.
During this experience Tracy you have been wonderfully attentive and overly generous with your time. It is clear that you are passionate about transformation and that enthusiasm is infectious.
I look forward to our Summer shop!
Wishing you ongoing success in your rapidly expanding business.

Just a quick message to say thank you.
I'd never thought I would ever go clothes shopping with someone who knows so much about them. I wasn't sure on what to expect or even what to do but it ended up being really fun, even trying on multiple outfits ended up being more fun which is something I
You knew exactly which shops to look in first and even exactly what types of clothes to look at so it didn't even feel like my regular bumbling and clueless shopping experience.
I think this is the first time ever I've actually worn clothes that fit me and I've been getting so many compliments good lord. My old
clothes are feeling more hideous every time I wear the new ones. Dem gangsta shoes!
I want to thank you for the time you spent with me shopping - I enjoyed myself thoroughly. You really helped me decide to take my wardrobe to the next level and feel confident to pull off some of the sexiest pleather pants I've seen. The clothing we bought are my prize pieces and I feel wonderful whenever I wear them. I have referred you to my best friend & Mom - they should be in contact with you very soon.
Wishing you a wonderful day further.
