With celebrity stylists like Karla Welch and Ilaria Urbinati wielding more power than ever in the fashion industry, it's easy to see the appeal of a career in styling. But unlike fashion design, photography or journalism, styling hasn't historically been a trade you could go to school to study.

Business of Fashion is looking to change that through a new online course launching with stylist Lucinda Chambers. With a background at publications like British Vogue and Elle, relationships with brands like Chanel and Prada and experience on set with famed photographers like Patrick Demarchelier and Nick Knight, Chambers has a career any fashion person would envy. 

It's this well of experience Chambers draws from in the roughly 10-hour class, which includes video tutorials, essential reading and quizzes. Chambers also invites some of her friends and long-time collaborators, like hair stylist Sam McKnight and set designer Shona Heath, to offer their own advice.

"I would love to say that I came out of the womb with an incredible sense of fashion or style or passion or sense of what I wanted to be doing in life and that would just be lying," Chambers told BoF. "[Styling] is a craft that can be learnt and if you have passion, it's completely achievable."

Enrollment in Lucinda Chambers's "Fashion Styling and Image Making" course costs $195 and the class can be completed at the students' own pace. For more information, check out the course page.
