This September, a school dedicated solely to training fashion stylists will open in the UK. The London College of Style was founded by stylist Wendy Elsmore and model/stylist Kate Smith. Between the two of them, they have over 15 years of experience in the industry and have worked with tons of major fashion magazines, celebrities, and brands.
We spoke to co-founder Kate Smith about the school. Kate and her biz partner Wendy started the school because they saw a need for a quality short-term professional vocational program for fashion styling. Students interested in the industry either had to go to two or three year university programs or to short weeklong seminars held by “celebrity stylists.”
