is what I do ...


You have 7 seconds. Make them count.

As consumers, when we judge a product or a service, we are heavily influenced by its carefully crafted product packaging. Packaging creates strong visual brand aesthetics and ensures an immediate, and positive, first impression will be projected onto the core target market. Successful packaging design tells consumers a story that connects with them. It is a vehicle for a product to go from the shelf into the shopping cart.

Why not use this to your advantage? Executives who also focus on their strong visual aesthetics and careful packaging will successfully project a positive brand and professional image onto their target market, within seconds of first being seen. The visual image that you project onto the outside world reflects your personality, your work ethic, your lifestyle, your belief system, and your core values.

People whom we meet make quick decisions about us. Should they hire us? Vote for us? Buy something from us? Seven seconds. This is that brief moment in time when others first see you, or your employees, whether it’s at a meeting, on the job, or at an interview. They may have some prior knowledge of you, but this is the first time they actually lay eyes on you.

Are you someone to approach or to avoid? Do you have status and authority? Are you trustworthy, competent, and confident? Are you successful, hardworking, and intelligent? Are you happy and glad to be there? Do your appearance, behavior and the way you communicate convey a positive and professional image? You have seven seconds. Together, we will make them count. [Free e-Book]

“I work with professionals and companies who place great importance
in themselves, their professional appearance, and the powerful first and lasting impression
they make on their clients, business partners, stakeholders, employees and superiors.”


I help you to stand out. For the right reasons.

Sylvie di Giusto, Founder of Executive Image Consulting, Image Expert and Consultant hover background


Sylvie di Giusto, professional image consultant and corporate trainer, has more than twenty years of corporate experience, educating and inspiring thousands of clients across Europe and around the world. She has long been fascinated by the power of image and the way people can use their personal brand to positively influence their own career. Having spent years observing, supporting and influencing people’s career paths, Sylvie has witnessed how important the role of a professional image is in setting a person apart from the competition and projecting his or her unique selling points. As an experienced consultant, a speaker retained by companies, an effective trainer, and an enthusiastic workshop leader, Sylvie is familiar with the typical challenges that professionals face in their workplace. She has a proven track record in corporate and individual counseling, using a results-orientated approach. Ultimately, her ability to empower people to influence the success of their own career and her passion for fashion has led to her launching Executive Image Consulting, based in New York City. It is here that she uses her extensive corporate expertise to help clients project a powerful visual image of themselves to the outside world.



Throughout her career, Sylvie has held senior positions, mainly within Human Resources, for organizations ranging from 10 to 100,000 employees. Former companies and clients include: BMW, BASF, Bayer, Henkel, McKinsey, and Thomas Cook. She has become a recognized member of the international business community because she worked with every strata of management from CEOs to young executives within the finance, automotive, pharmaceutical, retail, and tourism industries. Living abroad gave Sylvie the opportunity to gain further qualifications in her field from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and  from the Academy of Professional Image and the International Academy of Image and Style in Australia. She is an active member of the National Speakers Association. Within the United States Sylvie is represented by the speakers bureau Global Top Speakers as well as in Europe by 5 Sterne Team. Sylvie is also the co-owner of the Studio for Image Professionals, the industry’s only training provider dedicated to the business of image consulting, where she turns talented image consultants into talented entrepreneurs.


Events, consultations and workshops with Sylvie applicable to the real world. Participants leave with valuable skills, techniques and tools they can put to practical use. Sylvie’s presentation style, while personable, is also authentic and professional so she won’t detract from the focus of the session with inspirational clichés or an overzealous manner. All consultations are personalized to meet the needs of the individual or corporate client, offering customized solutions that can immediately be put to use in the workplace. From individual counseling to corporate consulting, Sylvie puts her clients at ease and is mindful of their objectives and their busy work schedules.


Sylvie has a multi-cultural background: Austrian by birth, French in her heart, Italian in her kitchen, German in her work ethic, and American by choice. She has lived a varied life traveling the world, surviving personal struggles, and accomplishing personal and professional goals. Her life is rich with unique experiences, not to mention the added joy of raising her two wonderful children in New York City with her husband. These off-stage experiences fuel her consultations, workshops, and events by providing tremendous content and energy. When she is not working, Sylvie volunteers her time with New York Cares; when she is not volunteering, she is spending valuable time with her family exploring the extraordinary country of the United States and the unique culture of New York City, this amazing place she is lucky enough to call home.

The Image of Leadership, Sylvie di Giusto, Executive Image Consulting, Trainer, Speaker, Image Consulting, Trainer LeadershipThe Image Of Leadership

How leaders package themselves to stand out for the right reasons

Sylvie’s brand new book “The Image of Leadership” is the result of her journey through two career paths: one in the field of human resources, the other one as a professional image consultant. The title reflects the reality that everyone can and should acknowledge, which is that true leadership manifests itself in ways that are both seen and unseen.

Her book will take you step-by-step through the development of your professional imprint. The focus will be on all of those things that people perceive about you, with an emphasis on your appearance and your image. This book is written to be concise, easy to read and entertaining for leaders at all levels. You’ll encounter hard data drawn from Sylvie’s research because she loves to speak from facts. She also shares countless stories from her 20 years of experience in corporations around the world, and she will prove her theories with people who are currently in the public eye. There is no other book that encourages you to learn about your image from famous politicians, CEO’s or pop stars at the same time.

Although the cute selfie with your child photobombing the picture may be harmless in your eyes, it could come off to your audience that you are selfish. If you post the adorable messy faced child after a piece of birthday cake that’s fine- but consistently messy photos could send a message that you are a mess yourself.

Top 10

New York City is the most exciting and dynamic city in the world. It is home to thousands of well-known as well as hidden shops, stores, boutiques, and brands. We constantly get asked by our clients for tips and favorite spots, since this vibrant, elaborate city has so much to offer. After scouring this amazing city for many years we decided to share the places we adore. We invite you to explore the magnificent Big Apple with us; we even provide you with a map to accompany you on your image transfer journey.


It can be quite a challenge for almost any man: finding a suit that fits, suits his personal style, and is within his budget. New York offers so many shops, ateliers, and showrooms filled with men holding measuring tapes. With so many master craftsmen in one city you need to be sure you are talking to the right person. Here is the list with some of New York's best tailors.


Don't get us wrong, we love a suit from Hugo Boss or Ermenegildo Zegna. However, you can buy a tailor-made suit that really fits you for nearly the same price. This might not be true for every bespoke suit, but it definitely is for a made-to-measure option. Here are suit tailors who will bring you the most innovative customization from every price point.


Since there are so many off-the-rack shirts, the idea of having a custom-made shirt still seems to be expensive and old fashioned to some. However, as long as you find a reputable tailor, the unbeatable fit, quality, and attention to detail is well worth what you will spend. We have listed some of the best places in New York to get your custom-made shirt.


New York's department stores are like no other. Whether you are looking to buy the latest fashion trends, your next business outfit, or just plan a walk through, there is a New York City department store for every style and budget. If you want to shop in one of the famous New York City department stores, you have come to the right place. Here is a list of the best department stores in New York.




Each year, more than 30 million people worldwide purchase a new pair of eyeglasses. Most of them buy their pair in one of the big and famous store chains. However, since eyeglasses can also bring a touch of sophisticated charisma or can lend you an educated edge to your image, we recommend you take a look into some of the smaller and more specialized shops. All you have to do is to check this list of unique and individual eyewear shops in New York and then choose the right frame wisely.


In the old days, women went to a dressmaker and men went to a tailor. This might still be the reason that we don’t find a lot of obvious options and tailors for women to buy bespoke or made-to-measure clothes. Even when we found some tailors, many of them gave us a second-best attitude. Anyway, here is a list of reputable tailors who also provide women with perfectly fitting, high quality bespoke, or made-to-measure clothes.


'Bespoke' and 'Internet' are somehow a contradiction in terms. A true bespoke experience includes going into your tailor's shop for multiple fittings and ends with a 100 percent hand-made perfectly fitted suit for you. It is impossible to get a suit fitted that way online and made exactly for you. In addition, most online providers make made-to-measures pieces but just don't label them. It is a modern approach to buying a suit, and we don't want to hold back this list of online shops.


Outlet malls exploded in popularity in the last several years and became one of the fastest-growing retail segments in the US. However, most of them are located in the middle of nowhere, far away from New York. Real estate and rental prices are more affordable out there and cheap merchandise is located far from its full-price counterpart. You won't find a Gucci or Hermes outlet opening on Fifth Avenue anytime soon. Instead, you have to make your way out of the city like many budget-conscious shoppers regularly do.



To some of us, consignment shops still conjure up images of dark and dirty stores, where people try to sell unwanted clothing or donate to benefit a charity. But for savvy shoppers who love luxury items, that perception has been changed during the last few years. Many New Yorkers seem to cleanse their closets and trade their treasure in for a few dollars. Here you can find a list of stores that carry a large variety of sometimes ridiculously affordable designer clothes.


Shoes aren't free, right? Unfortunately not. Therefore, you better maximize your investment and treat your shoes nicely, as they should be treated. However, despite how well you take care of your shoes, there will come a time when the shoe might tear apart. Here are New York's best places to take your pair of shoes for a shine or to repair.


Wearing well-tailored, stylish, and expensive clothes is indeed important. However, clothing almost means nothing if underneath is not also groomed. Just like women have their beauty routines, real gentlemen must have their regular grooming routine, which includes hair, nails, skin, and teeth. Here you can find a list of New York's best grooming clubs and barber shops where specialists deal with these key areas.


Sample sales are one of those typical things bargain hunting New Yorkers love. But instead of lining up at some unglamorous hour for the privilege of shopping in a crowded showroom you should also consider joining some online flash sale sites. Daily, limited-time, and limited-quantity private sales events for discounted luxury designer brands make shopping even more fun. Here is a list to help you get started saving money.
