It was a great pleasure to shop with style consultant, Melissa. She has good fashion senses and knows what suits me best. I may not always getwhat I want but she gets me what I need. At the end of the day not only I have pieces that I would never have picked myself but most importantly knowledge and support from her. Do it with an open mind and be surprised by the image transformation. There are still more style lessons to learn from her. Thank you so much Melissa! Serene, 15 May 2015
The afternoon with Melissa on image consultation and shopping was a fun and enjoyable experience.We discussed on what kind of image I wanted to project and then Melissa helped me identify the clothes that suit my needs.It was totally up to me to decide which outfits I wanted to buy, and I ended up buying most of the clothes because I love the clothes Melissa chose for me! What I appreciate most is her ability to choose the outfits and styles that make me look different but still represent ME. She is very honest in giving me the expert feedback. I now know what colour and style flatter my body most. I recommend anyone who want an image makeover to consider Melissa as the personal shopper. Sarah, 15 March 2015
My wardrobe was getting pretty boring and I felt that I needed professional help to update my ‘look’. I have always lacked an understanding of the colours that suit me. Consequently, a dislike of shopping for clothes developed.
After our style & colour consultation, Melissa came out with a shopping list for my new wardrobe. On our shopping day, she took me straight to shops she had pre-shopped and managed to find everything I needed! She gave me lots of tips on how to create different style looks and showed other options that work for my body shape and personal style. I would like to thank Melissa for giving me confidence and bringing colours into my wardrobe! Now, I can go shopping myself with confidence. Eve, 3 February 2015
1. What were your reasons for looking for an image/style consultant?
I decided to inquire about an image consultant as I felt that although I am maturing and my body had changed since I was in my 20’s I was not entirely sure what did and did not suit me whether it be colours, styles or brands. I was aware that I was sticking to a lot of fashion rules my mother had brought me up on (blue and green should never be seen, shoes should match handbag, always avoid orange etc…). I also work in a competitive professional environment where I feel that being well groomed is very important to the impact and perception you create but also dressing according to my age is equally important.
2. What made you decide to engage Image Harmony?
I literally googled “Image consultants Singapore” when I came across Image Harmony. I like the look of the website and the services offered so I decided to email Melissa only to inquire and still 70% sure I would not follow through. Melissa in her responsiveness to my email helped convince me I should follow up as did her no nonsense approach to providing me with a quote. There was no upselling or trying to sell me a service I did not want.
3. How would you describe the whole experience?
The whole experience was fantastic and so easy. Melissa came to my house and did the initial consultation which was nowhere near as daunting as I expected and her relaxed and friendly personality put me at ease. The shopping trip with her was so great as it was organised and she was so budget and cost conscious I was not trying to keep track of what I had spent and purchased. We also did not waste any time just browsing and Melissa is great fun just to hang out with.
4. How have you benefitted from the service?
I feel more updated with my new clothes and accessories. My boyfriend loves my new update and I feel more confident especially at my work.
5. Would you recommend Image Harmony to others? Why?
Absolutely and for any woman at any age. Melissa is honest in her feedback, she respects the budget you set, she is thorough and lastly just such a lovely person to deal with. For anyone who is constantly bombarded with makeover shows and wished, I wish someone could just tell me what suits my body shape and how to wear the most flattering styles should contact Melissa. Melissa also respects what you are comfortable wearing and I can say safely I would not have picked any of the clothes she picked out for me myself but I love them all and have received so many compliments when I wear them.

“I went to Melissa in search of image advice, and got more than I expected. Thanks to her expert personal shopper recommendations over 1.5 days, I now have a good wardrobe and make-up to jumpstart, and with the confidence and tips she imparted, I’m sure I will be able to build up my image by myself from now on.
The experience over the 1.5 days was quite liberating as well. Melissa is very patient and always considering my needs, even if my style habits (or lack thereof) were very different from her personal opinions. For those who don’t need a totally revamped wardrobe, I would still greatly encourage you to shop with Mel, it was amazing that clothes and colours that I never saw myself wearing turned out so fitting when Mel mixed and matched pieces for me. Thanks to the shopping trip, I have also added a few more brands to my favourite shopping places.
Another unexpected bonus after this personal shopper trip is the makeup she recommended. I have always been a fuss-free minimal makeup person, and now I’m receiving compliments from my bosses that I’m glowing. I realized that I haven’t been applying my minimal makeup at the correct places, and now really appreciate the advice and good products that Melissa shared. It works :)” Associate at UNISIM, 31
Fashion has never really been my thing. Of course I appreciate all the beautiful clothes paraded on the runways but I could never pull it off and make my wardrobe exciting. I would go for safe style options that I could carry off e.g. a wardrobe that consists mainly black and grey clothes. I wanted to update up my wardrobe to transit to a more professional corporate image, hence I started to search for a personal shopper and found out about Image Harmony.
Initially, I just wanted a style expert to help “design” my corporate image and do the shopping for me but the outcomes and benefits of engaging Melissa’s expertise were more than I expected. Melissa spent time to thoroughly understand my needs and motivation for an image makeover. She provided me advice not just on clothes but also my hairstyle and makeup; the overall image. During the shopping trip, not only did Melissa select clothes that met my personal needs but also, gently persuaded me to try different styles that flattered my body shape. From this shopping experience, Melissa opened up my eyes to great possibilities of restyling my image to the next level with the introduction of texture, bold colors and accessories to my otherwise boring wardrobe.
Melissa was pivotal in transforming my corporate image from boring to modern and interesting through her highly personalised service. I am so glad to have Melissa as my personal shopper. Kathy Chiang
“Journey of change that was enlightening, fun and real.”
– Summary of my time with Melissa Chor.
AfterI have been losing hair for several years and was looking to shaving bald but, needed a second opinion. Melissa’s profile came up online and I visited her not knowing the wealth of knowledge and wisdom she had in professional grooming. She helped to craft a profile that naturally fits my personality without me having change to ways I am unconformable with, and she even shared her network of stylist with me which was life changing. Shopping session with Melissa is highly recommended; she helped me to save tons of time in experimenting and finding wrong clothing accessories. Oh! Not forgetting, learning golden tips on how to single out the best item that fits!
Thank you Melissa, not only you helped me in improving my image for professional career, I had a great time with your lively method of consulting. Cheers, Henry Tan
How many of us truly know and understand our unique styles and are able to put together different pieces of clothing so that our personalities can be authentically reflected? I for one am absolutely clueless about it and thus Melissa’s proposal on the Personal Style Recipe consultation was received by me with much enthusiasm, and have reaped tremendous benefits from the session.
After completing the style recipe homework and going through it in greater detail with Melissa, I had a better understanding of how my lifestyle activities, personal preferences, body shape and seasonal color play a significant part in my choice of clothes. I was personally thrilled that factors such as roles and lifestyle activities were incorporated in the style recipe as I am a relatively practical person and desire my outfits to be appealing, functional and appropriate for the occasion. Melissa took my personal preferences into consideration as well when she went pre-shopping for me and that (among other things) made my shopping trip with her much more gratifying and rewarding!
A person’s style is intrinsic and private, with like his or her voice or gestures; partly a matter of inheritance, partly of cultivation. This journey has helped me unravel not only my personal style recipe, but also how clothing of various colors, textures, patterns, fabric weights etc can enhance my personality traits. I no longer shop for clothes just because they are on sale or look good on the mannequin but articles that resonate well with me physically and psychologically and of course, all credit goes to Melissa! Celest Ling, Counsellor
I had a rewarding shopping experience with Melissa as I ended up with several great outfits and accessories.
I had a wonderful time, and more importantly, my wardrobe has expanded and I will be able to shop more confidently and knowledgeably in future.
I will be glad to recommend potential clients to her.
Melissa Chor, what can I say? I’m so glad to have met her, and she taught me most importantly about colours. The colour analysis session was so useful, as she guided me on the right colours to choose to stand out from the rest. It was only then I realized I have been wearing the wrong colours. Now, with the right colours, I feel more confident about myself. Thank you very much Melissa.

I deeply appreciated Melissa for her warmest service and expert style knowledge which has made me more confident and cheerful in my outlook in life. I felt that my wardrobe was getting more and more boring, hence I called upon Melissa to help me change my personal style. The image makeover has helped me to appreciate and treasure myself more. I am very happy with the results as I now know what style really suits me. New image, new beginning! Thanks a lot, Melissa!
Jasmine Zhang, Marketing
The last time I had time to shop for clothes was when I was in my early twenties, just before I started working. Fast forward to now, with 3 kids, a changed figure and a new designation at work, I was looking to revamp my wardrobe to reflect the new me, but simply had no time to scour the shops! So I called in the style consultant and expert shopper, Melissa!
Melissa did a style and body analysis to educate me on what kind of colours, fabric and style would bring out my best features while camouflaging my flaws. She also did a wardrobe audit and managed to put together quite a few outfits for me that I would not have thought possible. Melissa went shopping with me and with her help and excellent taste coupled with a good understanding of the particular image I wanted to project, looking for clothes was a breeze. In a short span of about 6 hours, I managed to buy an amazing amount of clothes consisting tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, belts and accessories. Very efficient use of time and all within the budget I had set! No more staring at my wardrobe thinking ‘I’ve got nothing to wear…” Thanks Melissa!

I went to the image and style consultations with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised. Acquired a number of good ideas, more receptive to new styles and just more aware, stylewise. Enjoyed myself and had a blast! Thank you Melissa!
Maria Wee-Wilkinson Consulting Manager
I went to Melissa for advice on personal shopping. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of the sessions. Firstly, Melissa did a colour analysis for me and I received a personal season colour fan which serves as a guide to choosing my make-up colours, accessories and clothes. The personal shopping experience was fun as I got to try on different styles and learnt what type of pattern, design and print are most flattering for my body shape and personality. My makeover was a success as I have been receiving compliments that I look younger and more energetic. My new image has also boosted my self-confidence, resulting in me landing my dream job! D. Loh, Banker
I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to Melissa for bringing colours into my life! I have always chosen safe colours for my clothes, make-up and even accessories. I engaged Melissa’s services for a Colour and Style consultation and Personal Shopping session and it was the best decision I ever made! Melissa was very professional and patient in imparting her knowledge and skills to me. At the end of the session, I was able to identify the right colours for my skintone. I can now avoid making mistakes on the colours and styles when I go shopping. Thank you Melissa!

Before seeking help from Melissa, my wardrobe consists only black, blue and grey apparels as I am quite clueless about what colours suit me. I also have no idea on how to coordinate my wardrobe without me looking like a fashion disaster. After a personal color analysis consultation and shopping excursion with Melissa, I now have a better understanding of my personal style and how to use colours to create different looks for different situations! Celest Ling, Undergraduate
“Shopping with Melissa was so much fun. I had no idea where to shop for a fancy 3-day event I had to attend, and that’s when I decided to contact Melissa. She was so pleasant and professional, she made the whole experience easy and stress-free. Not only that, she saved me hundreds of dollars by taking me to stores where I purchased stylish clothing at a discount. She helped me find outfits that were appropriate for the event and looked fantastic on me, together with shoes and accessories. I highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to overhaul their wardrobe, or just looking for a few new outfits.”
Yuki Puar, Home-maker
Melissa was extremely professional from the beginning. Melissa advised me on style, color and make-up. These were personalised and she also provided me with hands-on experience with the make-up. During the sessions, Melissa was open to discussions, and also answered queries and doubts that I had. Since the consultation with her, I have had a better understanding of why certain clothing-accessory combination looked better, and why certain fabrics looked good on me while others didn’t. While I am still new to it, this understanding is important for me to work through my existing wardrobe and shop for the new one. Melissa has also helped me understand various aspects of my physique, and how best to highlight and enhance them. My experience with Melissa has been great, and I am glad to have engaged her services. Thanks, Melissa! MJ, Manager
I contacted Melissa because I found myself falling into a fashion rut. I needed new ideas and decided that I would do something special for myself. A new beginning for the new year so to speak. I found the colour, style and shopping sessions to be very practical and fun! I also learnt that it was much easier to work with my body shape instead of against it. Now,armed with my colour swatch and newfound knowledge of what style flatters me, shopping is going to be something I look forward to.

Trying on clothes, or going clothes shopping always felt like an arduous task that I always dreaded. If I did go, I would go to stores that I knew, picked the same colours or chose similar outfits to what I had already in my closet. After some discussion with my husband, I agreed to call an image consultant. I made an appointment with Melissa to spend a few hours with her. I was a little nervous but she was so warm and friendly right from the beginning, my mind was soon at ease with everything. Melissa first went through what colours would look best on me and also what I could do with my hair. Was I surprised when i found out that most of the items in my wardrobe were the WRONG colour and my hair colour did not suit me as well! I ended up putting those wrong-coloured clothes in a pile and gave them away. Melissa then took me shopping. I never had so much fun shopping as I did that day! I talked about it for weeks after. Melissa knew what stores to go to and of course she knew what colours looked good on me as well. Her knack for finding items on racks that I would have just passed by was amazing to watch. She made me try on dresses that I probably wouldn’t have given a glance to and I was shocked how well they looked on me. The styles were perfect for me. I needed some casual clothes but also some nice professional outfits for work that were comfortable. The styles were perfect, the colours fantastic and we ended off the day, buying a few pairs of shoes to match the outfits. I was so very happy with all my purchases!! I highly recommend Melissa’s service- she is just AMAZING!

“Melissa is the personal shopper everyone should have! I got what I wanted, within my budget and bought almost all the items she picked. Even though she has a different style from mine, she was superb at identifying what I like. Not only did she make shopping a fuss-free experience for a non-shopper like me, but she also made it enjoyable through her collaborative approach. We talked, she listened and importantly for me, she always gave her honest expert opinion. Hersincere passion to have me look my best shone through, so when she chooses an item I would not have picked, I trust her enough to give it a try. And by this, I now have new looks which I like. So if I were looking for a personal shopper it would definitely be Melissa!”

After much time spent on searching for a personal image consultant, I decided to take up Image Harmony’s individual consultation package as it best suit my needs. Each makeover session was interesting. We went through a personal colour analysis and I received a colour fan that matches my skin tone. We also discussed body shapes, how to mix and match clothes and accessories, how to create a natural day makeup look and suitable hairstyles for my face shape.The most exciting session was the shopping. The experience was awesome. Melissa knew what were the best styles for me and what were to be avoided.I felt pampered in one of the stores she brought me to. Dressing up in one outfit after another… I will say I looked different and fabulous. I am very particular about shoea. They must be comfortable to wear for the whole day as my job requires me to move around a lot. Hence, I seldom wear high heels although I love them a lot. Melissa gave me advice on which shoe brands are comfortable to wear. I learnt a lot more about myself and how to dress more stylishly. No more fashion disaster days. Thanks Melissa!!
