As Past President of the New York Tri-State Chapter, my goal is to help you refine your image, giving you the look you need for the success you deserve! Maybe you need a new wardrobe, or want help weeding out your old one. Maybe you want to learn about which colors work best for you, or what outfit you should wear to that important interview.  Join me! At a time where clothes make the man (or woman), we can help you make choices that make sense for you, your workplace, home, travel, and your budget!

I offer private one-on-one consultations, group and school presentations, and small in-house classes. I teach social and leadership skills, allowing you to accelerate your career and meet with success in both your business and personal life! My approach is tailored to the individual, seeking to maximize the assets of each of my clients and help them attain their unique goals.  Let me help you identify your dream—and then get you there faster.                 
 
Below are a list of topics to discuss—either in a private consultation or in a larger group setting. For more information, see my contact page!

Bra Fittings.  Underarments must fit well to provide an excellent image and confidence.  Even the most expensive dress won't look like it if undergarments are creating rolls and dents in unexpected places.  Private fittings, group fittings for weddings and special occasions offer a perfect way to ensure a great look!

About Terri

 

Terri began her modeling career as a 44-year-old grandmother when she answered an ad in the local paper for a in-house fit model at Lane Bryant in Columbus, Ohio. After nine years at Lane Bryant, Terri signed with FORD NY Models and moved to New York to pursue the opportunity of a lifetime. She is a fit and intimate apparel expert.  She has modeled in Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Canada, and Indonesia. Terri was the fit model at QVC, plus fit model FORD NY, at MSA Models in New York City as well as fitting for many of her own clients.  Terri performed in an Off Off Broadway Play, "Welcome to Betsy's R & B Party" at the Producer's Club in NYC, April 2013.
 

In recent years, Terri has found new ways  to bring her extensive expertise in image consulting and modeling to  the public.  She has become a guest lecturer and educator, with her  popular seminars “Lingerie and Lace: A Lesson in Allure” and “Six Steps to Fashionably Fitting the Voluptuous Woman” featured by the Fashion Societé. She has taught “Know  Your Foundations” at the Plus Academy NYC, as well as other individualized  classes.  She has also taught and adjudicated for the Imatge Consulting Company of Mexico City.   In  her limited free time, she volunteers backstage as a stylist during  Fashion Week, the Swarovski Red Dress Event, Broadway Cares, and DIVABETICS to  name a few.  She's dressed Lainie Kazan, Joan Collins, Billie Jean King  and worked backstage at the finale on Project Runway.  

As an industry veteran, Terri has been invited to speak in a number of public forums. You might have seen her on The Tyra Banks Show talking about her weight and its role in the end of her 21-year marriage, on The Today Show as the “glamorous grandma,” in Plus Model' Magazine's  2011 “Icon” issue, freelance writer and heard her on Chenese Lewis’  Blog Talk Radio. Or perhaps you saw her as a panelist at the "Women In the Spotlight Now" conference in Atlanta!  She was invited to speak at CCAD, Columbus College of Art and  Design on Plus Size Historyl  Currently, she is quoted in "Get Noticed!   Insider Secrets to a Confident & Classy Image" by Brenda Joyce  Johnson and in "Plus Model Blueprint" by Kenyatta Johnson, both  available at Amazon.

Among  other awards and honors, Terri was honored as a "LEGEND" in the  industry in 2016 and named the 2011 Plus Fit Model of the Year by a jury of  her peers at the Full Figured Fashion Week in New York City!  
 

Lane  Bryant wrote: "One 'Legend' familiar to us is Terri Murray of Terri  Murray Image, who began her modeling career in 1994 as an in-house fit  model at Lane Bryant in Columbus, Ohio. She is a fit and intimate  apparel expert whose services have been utilized around the world. Among  other awards and honors, Terri was named the Plus Fit Model of the Year  at the Full Figured Fashion Week in 2011."
 

Behind the camera, Terri produced, directed and edited "Vaudvillities," a documentary highlighting their  success and continuous performances for over 65 years.
 

 

With  over twenty-four years in the business, Terri is more active than ever  in the fashion community! Currently she is placing fit models for True Model Management at LaSenza Corporate and booking herself currently as a Design Intent Model at Catherine's Corporate in Columbus, sister company to Lane Bryant and Cacique brands.  Listening to the advice of many, she is developing  Terri Murray Models, booking models most recently in Columbus, Ohio, New  York City, Portland, Oregon and Pennsylvania at QVC.  She is the Past President of the New York  Tri-State Chapter of the Association of Image Consultants International and former Regional Director of Fashion Group International in Columbus, Ohio. 
 

 

  • Terri resides in Columbus, Ohio.   Terri has two daughters and four  granddaughters, who affectionately refer to her as “Grandma New York.” She hopes that her successful career as a model, trainer, educator, and consultant will motivate and inspire you  to DREAM ON AND DREAM BIG!

Terri presented a seminar on "Dressing for your body Type" at Wings for Success' annual volunteer event. She immediately engaged the group and taught them many practical tips that will help then better serve our clients and prepare them to successfully go on interviews and start new jobs.  Working with one of her models, she was able to show our volunteers how women of any size can look fantastic and stylish."
