For over six years I had the good fortune to work with Christina McDowell on a number of significant profile and revenue building projects for Holt Renfrew. As one of Canada’s pre-eminent image consultants, with excellent skills as a spokesperson Christina is a consummate professional who offers intelligent insight and clarity to individuals and organizations seeking image and style advice. My experience with her was always positive and productive and as such I highly recommend her.
Christina McDowell is the go-to Image Consultant. She brings a chic and sophisticated style to all of her clients that is real and always on point. Having worked alongside her for 10 years on many high profile programs and one-on-one client sessions, I witnessed first-hand how she helps Fortune 500 executives, politicians, professional athletes, celebs, and students, all of whom were looking to present their best image. Above all, Christina cares deeply for her clients as she guides them through the process of defining their style on time and on budget. And lucky for me, she is also my image coach, and there is no one I trust more than Christina McDowell.
I have always been confident that I have the education, experience and ability to deliver results but, there is a confidence that comes from knowing that you can walk into any room and command it. Christina has given me that confidence and it has translated into incremental business success, and many compliments on my appearance. I also appreciate that Christina respects my budget, while helping me choose key investment pieces for my wardrobe.
Beyond her trademark style of refinement, sophistication and elegance that everyone wants to emulate, Christina gained the trust of her clients through her honesty and professionalism. Christina has nurtured an ongoing, frank dialogue with her clients regarding the importance of image that comes from self-awareness. She made it her goal to listen and truly understand her clients and their needs. As a client I’ve had the privilege to benefit from her unique position, as Holt Renfrew’s Image Consultant and as a stylist, in what has truly been a complete experience.
Christina, along with being possibly the most elegant person on the planet, has a unique way of sifting through all that’s out there, and finding not only the most beautiful things, but the most practical, and most importantly, the thing that’s just right for you. No pressure, just the perfect clothes for your life.
Christina pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me try different wardrobe options that I wouldn’t have tried on my own. They are now my go-to pieces. Christina offers a professional, honest opinion that I trust.
