About a year ago I decided to start my own Personal Shopping and Wardrobe Consulting business. I was searching for a mentor online and found Christie on YouTube. I was immediately drawn to her wonderful personality, drive, and obvious extensive knowledge of fashion. After following her on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube for some time, I truly trusted and admired Christie and I decide to sign up for her Online Personal Stylist Training Course. And I am so glad that I did! Through this course I have been trained in body types, somatotypes, personality styles in clothing, degrees of formality in business dress, how to accessorize, where to shop and much more. I own this course for life which is so handy if I ever want to go back and review some information. Christie’s Personal Stylist Training Course is invaluable. Tons of videos, transcripts, workbooks, a private Facebook group, live Q & A and more. This course is jam packed with information and truly is worth it. Christie is there for you the whole time, answering questions, emails, and cheering you on. I feel empowered and confident in my attained knowledge and proud to say I am now a certified Personal Stylist. Not only that, I feel like I have gained a friend, too. Thank you, Christie, for everything!

All of the aspiring stylists I’ve helped over the years have felt the same way. They’re ready to embrace their creative flair and help others feel beautiful as they empower them to do the same.
I’ve been able to show stylists how-to style women in an authentic, real way that suits each individual they come across, while also running a business that feels good to them.
I LOVE helping aspiring and working stylists navigate this industry so that they are able to create a business they love, an income that supports them full-time, while also helping women look and feel beautiful everyday. I cannot wait to-do the same with you!
I’ve been a personal wardrobe stylist for about 7 years and have received formal training over the years. I signed up for the personal stylist course because I thought I’d like to have a “refresher” as it had been awhile.
I was blown away with the content in Christie’s course. Even combined, the courses that I had taken before didn’t hold a candle to what I learned from Christie!
She sets you up for success from the start and covers every aspect of what it means to be a stylist. From the nuts and bolts of the business, to the process with clients and more. I wish I had begun with her because she goes into far more extensive detail about the things you really need to know about fit, body type and style than I’d ever received before. Without hesitation, I would take this course again and can’t recommend it highly enough! – Elizabeth G.
I’ve been a successful stylist for over a decade now and work with women of all ages and sizes; helping them look and feel beautiful, inside and out. I have been the go-to expert for style advice for numerous media outlets across North America such as: CTV News, Breakfast Television, Global News, CBC’s Steven & Chris, Huffington Post, CHCH, Cosmo TV, Chatelaine, Toronto Star, The Hamilton Spectator and many more. I’ve delivered hundreds of workshops to corporations, women’s groups, and schools discussing self confidence, style, and image all over North America. Here are a few places I’ve been featured as a fashion expert:
If you have ever thought to yourself that personal styling may be a career path you’d be interested in, I cannot recommend Christie’s course enough. The quality of her content surpasses anything you could possibly piece together from any available sources online! I have personally loved style, clothing and dressing as a form of self-expression for years and never honestly thought I would be able to bridge the gap between hobbyist and entrepreneur. Christie’s course has changed all of that. It would be enough if Christie just simply provided the information alone, however, she also provides a highly engaging online classroom on Facebook, homework to share with your peers and live support and encouragement so that there is no second guessing whether or not you as a student are understanding the information. I also found the pacing of the information presented to be wonderfully spaced so that week by week you learn, experience and reflect on the concepts so that the information really has a chance to sink in by the next lesson. The homework and workbooks are extremely helpful and really aim to develop you as a stylist and step into yourself in a whole new way that opens up both who you are and who your ideal clients are as well! The value of this course is worth triple what Christie is asking. I am so happy that I invested in myself and was able to support such a beautiful individual like Christie in the process. You will not find a better teacher and leader. I feel confident and prepared to become a stylist and have already begun my business! – Brenda B.
*The modules each week can range from approx. 30 minutes to 2 hours.
What does a personal stylist do (and what don’t they do). We’ll also discuss the fashion cycle, how-to determine trends, discuss why people dress the way they do, body-image, image theory, your personal image as a stylist, and how to run-through a consultation with your client successfully.
This week, we’ll be discussing the body-type in-depth as well other factors to take into consideration when it comes to your clients style such as their bone structure, somatotype, facial shape, design elements and more. We’ll go over all of the principles in great detail and discuss how you will be able to identify yours also. How-to dress each shape will also be discussed in-depth with examples of each.
How-to identify your personality style. We’ll go over what the different style personalities are so you can discover what your clients is and how to incorporate that into their closet and personal style.
Let’s talk about how to accessorize. How can you dress up any look or how can you dress it down? What kind of accessories should your clients get? How many accessorizes should your clients wear? Can you wear evening accessories during the day? I’ll show you how accessories can completely impact your look.
Let’s chat about the levels of dress. We’ll breakdown the nine levels of dress in-depth (from Business to Formal) to make sure each time you dress your client they make the right first impression in any situation or event life may throw at them.
Ever wondered how a closet session unfolds? We’re going to talk about how-to do a success closet audit, closet basics your clients should own, how they can mix and match their clothing to get more versatility, and how you can help them create looks they love. In addition, we’ll also talk about how to create a proper shopping list for them based on any gaps they may have in your closet. We’re also going to talk about shopping! I’ll break-down how-to personal shop with your clients and the different approaches stylists can take so that you can choose one that best suits you and your clients. We’ll discuss where to shop, how to make sure the session is successful, and how to build relationships with stores you bring your clients to. We’ll also chat about how to shop and create a style for any budget your client may have.
Let’s talk business! Although we’ll have discussed the services and your clients throughout the course, this week is going to focus all on the business side of personal styling. This week, we’re going to cover how to get started so that you can start seeing clients a.s.a.p., how-to brand yourself, how to identify your ideal client (and attract them!), and setting your fees at all levels you’ll move through in your business (beginner, intermediate, and expert) so you’re paid well for doing what you LOVE. We’ll also explore how-to market yourself, how to use social media to leverage your business, service ideas you can use in your business to sell to your clients, and how-to schedule your time with clients.
Let’s discuss some important style info! We’ll cover essential information regarding fit, proportions, and how lines manipulate the eye (and what that means for your clients outfits!).
Week Nine: NEW MODULE ALERT!

We’re going LIVE in the private Facebook group for the course (the video will be available for replay in the group if you don’t have time to join the LIVE session). We’re going to talk about how-to grow your business while working a full-time job (the hustle is real!), your clients experience with you (and why it’s so important), how often to check-in with your current clients, and let you ask me any additional questions you may have. We’ll have a glass of wine and get chatting together!
As an entrepreneur, I was experiencing ‘burnout’ in my online handmade purse business. I knew I wanted to go in a different direction in the fashion industry but wasn’t sure what that would look like.
While I put my business on hold, I stumbled across Christie Ressel’s YouTube channel and watched every video. I was completely blown away by her unique knowledge of styling! While the majority of the fashion industry is all about making your body (regardless the shape) fit into the coveted hourglass shape, Christie’s approach is completely opposite and more authentic!
I immediately joined her FB group, did the Colour Analysis, and Personal Style course. I had so much fun finding my personal style that I knew this was an area I wanted to explore more. Soon after, she released her Personal Stylist Training and I jumped at the opportunity to sign up! Now I know I want nothing more than to help women feel fabulous in their own personal style!
Christie is such a genuine, personable lady who makes learning easy, exciting, and fun! Through the course, she teaches you everything you need to know about becoming a Personal Stylist and helps you all along the way! Even though I’m in the beginning stages of re-launching my business, I am very confident of future successes because of her course!
I highly recommend Christie’s Personal Stylist Training to anyone whether you’re a newbie like me looking to get into the personal stylist business or you want to UP your game in your existing business. It is worth your consideration and WILL be the greatest, worthwhile investment you can make in yourself and your future or current business! – Demechi L.
The Fashion Translated Personal Stylist course presented by Christie has new and instructive information for people who have loved fashion and style from a young age, or complete newbies to the idea of creating a personal style. Christie’s concepts and presentation of information got me to think of the body in a new way. In fact, I saw one of the scientific principles in a picture I had looked at for over 30 years and had never noticed it. Both the teaching and exercises lead to new discoveries as you put them into practice. The best part about Christie’s teaching style is that she doesn’t shame or use the negative to teach, in turn it helps you to have a more open mindset, that leads to better creativity. One of the best parts is that she becomes a friend who is very understanding and knowledgeable so that even awkward questions get asked and answered. I really recommend it for both personal and professional growth if you are ready to take both your style and your outlook to a higher level. – Maren H.
This course is held completely online! I’ll give you all of the materials mentioned above.
The first eight teaching modules (30 mins – 2 hours each in length) have been recorded for you in a video format. The last two modules will be recorded live with you in Facebook. You have completely unlimited replays to watch whenever you’d like.

"I left my Corporate job to pursue my passion of fashion and style. As a Personal stylist I help women say who they are with style. Even though I have the natural skill and talent to dress my body and could always help family and friends to put themselves together well, I wanted more formal knowledge. I wanted to be confident as I worked with clients, to be able to explain why certain styles may or may not work for them. You see, this is a real business for me. I have big goals for my new career and there is no way I can accomplish all of that if I only have superficial knowledge.
I’ve discovered Christie’s YouTube channel back in April 2019 and found out about the Personal Stylist course shortly after. Finally - almost 1.5 years later - I decided to invest in myself and my business and signed up. I’ve not regretted this one second! I’ve always been into style and fashion and just love to help women look and feel beautiful and after mainly being a stay-at-home mom for almost 16 years, I registered my own personal stylist business back in January this year. I absolutely loved this course and highly recommend it! The Personal Stylist training helped me so much to finally have the professional knowledge behind everything and gave me the confidence and believe to officially call myself a personal stylist. This course is worth every penny, it is very detailed and the perfect tool to start your own styling business! - Julia Schenke
Cost of training is $2,220 USD for early-bird registration. Monthly pmt options will be available.
