Here's what people are saying about Universal Style:

“The Universal Style Guide books have been invaluable foundation texts for our students of the Certificate
Programs in Image Consulting at both Parsons School of Design and Fashion Institute of Technology in
New York City and the Image Resource Center of NY Image Builder Training Programs.  The style
principles stand the test of time, are logical, fun to learn and do so very powerfully impact the clothing
lives of our professional consultants and our clients.“       

Dominique Isbecque, AICI, CIP, executive director, Image Resource Center of NY LLC

“Alyce Parsons and her message of style sense rings true with our guests, who gain a tremendous
amount of insight into their own approach to fashion. Her style techniques have also been an asset to our
staff members in creating a great first impression, so critical in the hospitality industry.”

Roxanne Housley, Canyon Ranch vice president of sales, marketing & strategic alliances

“As an image coach based in Australia with over 20 years experience throughout the Asia-Pacific region, I
have encountered many style programs in that time. I find the wonderful thing about Alyce Parsons’
Universal Style System is its head-to-toe analysis combined with intuitive perception that results in an
ideal meshing of clients inner-and-outer beauty.”

Jon-Michail, founder and CEO, Image Group International

“Alyce Parsons has created a most intriguing way to consider one’s style. As she describes the qualities
of the seven Universal Styles she developed, all of us can find ourselves and the qualities that define our
particular style.  Alyce is a real pro when it comes to both the Enneagram and the world of style. My hat
goes off to her for creating another meaningful way to find ourselves, and identify our way of being most
successful in the world. Well done!”

Dr. Meredith Young-Sowers, author of Spirit Heals, Wisdom Bowls, Angelic Messenger Cards,
Agartha; director, Stillpoint Foundation and School of Integrative Life Healing

“I love Alyce Parson's Universal Style System for getting to the heart of a person's authenticity, and
showing us how to be who we really are. The logical and comprehensive profile combined with the inner
essence and outer expression of each style gives an in-depth understanding of ourselves.”

Karen Brunger, BHEc, AICI CIP, president, the Association of Image Consultants International; director,
International Image Institute, Toronto, Canada

“The Universal Style books have been invaluable in the industry.  They are the ‘Gold standard’, of the style
systems. It is detailed with complete illustrations. The concepts are valid, user-friendly and easy for the
client to grasp. Coralyn Lundell and I use it as part of our curriculum in our style classes at CDI.  I also
use it with my clients.”

Sharon Chrisman, AICI CIP, Master Color Designer, CDI; Coralyn Lundell, AICI CIP, Master Color
Designer, CDI; co-directors of the Appearance Design Institute         

"I work with my clients as unique individuals and support them with colour and style selections that not
only look but feel fabulous.  That's what Universal Style does. It is a superbly thought-through system that
every image consultant needs to help our clients, corporate or individual, put their signature to
personalizing clothes, accessories and the complete outfit."

Christina Ong AICI CIP, founder & managing director, Imageworks Asia; Academy of Imageworks Asia
