Putting Your Image Consultancy Career On the Line – Dos and Don’ts of Daisy Dukes

Imagine the following scenario: your client asks your professional advice on donning Daisy Dukes shorts. What do you do? It’s not an entirely unreasonable request, considering that spring is well underway and the sweltering thirties will soon be upon us, as summer kicks into full gear. It’s never nice advising clients against something that they really want to wear, but as an image consultancy professional, you have to be brutally honest at times.

While an across the board ban on these shorts can’t be substantiated, you need to take it on a case-by-case basis and evaluate each client’s unique body shape, style and image, and come up with a well-thought-out answer. The Daisy Dukes shorts were reintroduced into popular culture by Jessica Simpson in the movie Dukes of Hazzard, and they were all the craze.

It would seem as though the shorts enjoy a revival at the start of every summer, some years more aggressively than others. This sends image consultancy professionals into a frenzy protecting their clients from the impulsive desire to don shorts that will leave a lasting bad impression of them among their peers. More often than not, image consultants are thanked by their clients once the frenzy dies down.

I am the designated photographer for the only internationally and nationally accredited make-up training institution which is celebrating is 52 years of operation. I love to experiment with the power of photography, specialising in conceptual & fashion, although I love shooting anything that challenges me. I shoot on location but also have my own studio situated in Parktown, Johannesburg.
