Alliance Partner

“I have enjoyed a long friendship with AIM as a valued alliance partner since 2005. Christina is one of my most outstanding mentees who is pioneering the growth of image consulting in Asia through AICI.”

Carla Mathis is a pioneer and sought-after trainer in the Image industry. She is one of the few stylists to have worked and taught with Suzanne Caygill, the woman who pioneered Image Consulting. One of only 13 Certified Image Masters (CIM) worldwide, Carla Mathis provides image consulting for individuals and groups in the USA and internationally. Her landmark book, The Triumph of Individual Style, used in design schools in the US and abroad has become the ‘bible’ of the personal image industry.

Carla is co-founder and instructor of the Style Core Institute (, and has trained a network of stylists from around the world. She is a founding member of both the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) and Colour Designers International (CDI), the two preeminent professional associations in the field. The Style Core is based in Northern California, with courses held in San Francisco and around the world.

In South Asia, Carla has enjoyed a long friendship as a valued alliance partner with AIM since 2005. A decade earlier, Christina completed an extensive period of personal design training with Carla and progressed to become one of Carla’s most outstanding mentees pioneering the professional growth of image consulting through AICI in Asia. Carla and Christina share a common vision for empowering women and men to change the world through Image Consulting with passion and purpose.
