Janine Starkey

Image Consultant

Key industries: Fashion icon

Janine Starkey, the creator of House of Janine, a qualified Fashion Designer built this brand 10 years ago, her career began in the film industry and had the privilege of dressing SA’s most renowned celebrities and she learnt the art of illusion dressing and styling through her experience.  

Janine’s past successes and failures allow her to relate and identify with the delegates; she uses her story as a way to engage with the audience and tells stories from the Egoli days to illustrate her point.  Janine then facilitates an interactive exercise which begins her illustration of how style can go wrong with the outfit she is wearing.  This is funny and entertaining but has a strong message.  Janine believes if you look good, you feel good, if you feel good you perform in every element of your life.  The audience is then invited to interact with Janine, asking question about their style, having their body shape and style assessed – this has been Janine’s signature key note address for 10 years.

An individual’s personality is a finger print – the one thing that separates us from everybody else, that identity needs to be translated into a look. Re-designing You- an innovative addition to our Inside Out programme in which the keynote address will include actual fashion illustrations, portraying Janine’s powerful image enhancing guidelines. Janine Starkey, qualified fashion designer by trade, will personally design an outfit for the few fortunate delegates who volunteer to have their body shape and style assed during the keynote address. These illustrations will be sketched on canvases which will then be gifted to the participating delegates. This creative technique will literally demonstrate the concept of personal style while educating delegates on improving their overall personal and corporate image.
