With the feedback I've received through my Fashionista column, I have created “The Introduction to Styling.” It's a three-day seminar of conversations and exercises where attendees will learn what it takes to be a stylist. This includes practical information about setting up a styling business, from the relationships you need to build to the tools you need to use. All of the knowledge taught in the course is original content created and written by me, based on my 13-year career all over the world.
Why attend? Well, I'm the first stylist with high fashion luxury clients, and a fashion background, to create an original weekend like “The Introduction to Styling,” which in its essence, will teach students the fundamental basics of becoming a stylist. Other courses and seminars are taught by people who possess very little or no experience in the marketplace, definitely not teachers who are considered experts. I created this training seminar after observing the struggle of my interns and assistants from misinformation--and lack of information--available in the current fashion learning environments.
“The Introduction to Styling” seminar enables students to acquire the information they need to become powerful stylists, whether you are a full-blown stylist or just starting as an assistant.
With all of the misinformation in the market and the highly competitive nature of the styling and fashion business, learning the fundamentals from an expert can make a styling practice succeed. Generally, in order to obtain this kind of information, a person would have to get a job assisting one of the top five stylists worldwide (if one can even get an interview) for at least five years and then start and run their own styling practice for five years after that, like I have done. The students in this seminar will get an in-depth look into the styling world. They'll learn about how I have become successful and what fundamentals I learned from the best stylists and editors around the world.
After “The Introduction to Styling” seminar, students will know what next steps to take on the styling career path. I created “The Introduction to Styling” seminar to provide my students with the knowledge needed to make more money either as a stylist or assistant stylist by learning the fundamentals of creating a powerful styling career.
“The Introduction to Styling” seminar will be taking place for the first time in New York City on January 7, 8, and 9. The seminar hours will be from 9am to 6pm everyday. We are only accepting 20 students for the first seminar so please contact us quickly as we have limited availability and already have several students signed up.
