Aditi Khanna

A trainer, entrepreneur and mentor, Aditi Khanna is one of India’s most renowned image consultants with close to a decade of experience in the personal branding and image management space.

After more than 15 years spent in client management and customer relations for companies such as Jet Airways and Kingfisher Airlines, Aditi felt a keen inclination towards using this expertise towards helping people and brands find the best version of themselves.

Fueled by this passion, in 2015, she founded Image Stilista, a consultancy aimed at image-building and grooming for upcoming professionals. With an overwhelming list of clientele and over 4000 trainees in a mere 4 years, she took her mission a step further with FutureSkomp LLP (2019) a company dedicated to helping corporates and educational institutions enable their students/employees with key skills beyond classroom learning. During this duration she also served as National Head Marketing for Image Management Professionals’ Association(IMPA).

To date, her work has seen tremendous success for several organizations such as MSCI, SABIC India, EMC2, Bharti Axa, Kirloskar, Natural Remedies, Zeelearn, The Flights Guru (UK), Amway, Janki Devi Memorial College( Delhi University), Vydehi School of Excellence (Bangalore), Sri Ram Schools Group (Rohini, Delhi)Delhi KidZee (Mumbai & Delhi), Mount Litera School International (Mumbai), and Poddar Jumbo Kids (Uran) to name a few.

She has also contributed immensely to the social and public organization like Share a Book India Association (SABIA), Udaan, Streisand foundation, Mumbai Police via focused workshops to support their cause.

After having steadily built a name in India’s image management landscape, Aditi was also among the first to pioneer a single platform that brought together some of the industry’s best and brightest to enable better learning and opportunities. This endeavor resulted in the The Trainers’ Consortium (TTC) – a community of 300+ highly- trained professionals who cater to clients all over the country.

As Aditi continues to drive change through her own initiatives, she also finds immense joy in mentoring aspiring image consultants in the Asia-Pacific region as well as consulting for several institutions and national & international beauty pageants.

To people, professionals and brands finding their place in a crowded world, her simple, yet effective image mantra has always been – ‘Take the time to know, understand and appreciate yourself and then work on finding the best version of ‘YOU’!

Do I need to book my session in advance?

Yes, this will help us allocate a dedicated slot for you.

What is your fee?
Every program is priced differently. We recognize each individual’s requirements are unique and demand a customized set of services. We prefer meeting you and understanding your needs before we arrive at the best set of services for you and the subsequent fee. In order to set up an appointment, contact us at
How long does it take to work on a well-defined image?
Every individual’s style and needs are different. The duration of our programs ranges from a few hours to a couple of weeks, depending on one’s choice. If clients wish to cover certain aspects such as shopping and fixing appointments on their own, this period may reduce. Make-over programs can also be broken down and covered over multiple sessions of different durations, depending on the client’s convenience.
Do you go shopping with your clients?
Yes, we do! For several of our image management services, our experts shop with our clients, guiding them towards the right stores and brands that match their unique style. We find that a combination of online and in-person shopping is time-effective and convenient for most clients. In addition, we have our ‘Smart Shopping’ service dedicated entirely towards developing a holistic wardrobe for our clients.
What does a personal shopper do?
A personal shopper or personal stylist is the bridge between you and your dream closet. Our personal shoppers at Image Stilista try to identify what you need to show up looking confident and presentable in your professional and personal circles. We then discuss the prints, colors, patterns and fabrics that you feel most comfortable in, along with your budget.
Basis a full-fledged understanding of your lifestyle, we then provide you with clothing options and looks that will make dressing up each day a quick, easy and enjoyable process. Our personal shoppers help you build the wardrobe you’ve always needed without the hassles of spending hours choosing clothes, overspending and research on brands.

The goal? A wardrobe with something for every occasion, day or moment in your life!

I’m nervous about working with a personal shopper/image consultant. Is that normal?

That’s completely natural! Opening up to a stranger about your needs, desires and experiences can be a bit daunting.
At Image Stilista, however, you can expect no judgement, forced fashion, body shaming or bullying. The journey towards an improved image is a beautiful one and we walk with you every step of the way. Your comfort and confidence are our main priority! Every look is crafted after discussion with you and for your unique weight, profile and lifestyle.

We always stop to ask – what do you need?

Do you have any portfolios or brochures to give me an idea of the styles you’ve developed?
We do not use any portfolios or brochures as several of our clients trust us to keep their sessions confidential and private. However, we do have a reference image bank to showcase the kind of transformation you can expect. Please note, however, that every individual’s journey is unique and no two makeovers can be exactly the same.
Who is your typical client?
Anyone who wishes to showcase the best version of themselves is a potential client! We have worked with both men and women between ages 18-80, across a wide range of professions such as doctors, executives, entertainers, scientists, single mothers, and students. However, we do specialize in coaching women who are seeking a new, improved image be it for professional or personal spheres of their life.
Is there a signature look you tend to go for?
No. At Image Stilista our focus is on a much broader objective, we believe a strong image is far more important than chasing fashion trends. We begin our journey with our clients with an open-minded approach, soaking in their needs, comfort, choices, personal experiences before crafting a new image for them. The result is a transformation that is unique to every individual!
Will I have to spend a lot for my new image?
No! The belief that image consultants encourage spending on brands and shopping is a myth.
Rather, at Image Stilista we encourage ‘smart and sustainable shopping’ wherein we curate or suggest a wardrobe with a versatile set of clothes & accessories that can be incorporated into many different looks over several years, limiting the need to buy many items.

Additionally, we work with you to develop a wardrobe that fits within your pre-decided budget so you can be at ease knowing that you’re not over-spending. Our motto – build, don’t buy!

Can I seek guidance even after finishing the program?
Always! At Image Stilista, we pride ourselves on lasting, life-long relationships with our clients. This journey is so much more than a service, it’s our commitment to building a YOU that you’re proud of wherever you go. We thrive on seeing you shine in life, not just during or immediately after a program. Call, text or email us – we’re always here to support your image evolution!
