Wardrobe Styling

What exactly is a Wardrobe Stylist?

What exactly is a Wardrobe Stylist?

How much confusion can a title cause? It’s funny in these past couple of weeks I’ve had at least 3 calls from women wanting to book onto the ‘Train to be a Wardrobe Stylist’ course who have been in total confusion as to what the job actually entails. Luckily I offer every potential delegate a free 30-minute consultation/chat to find out everything they need to know before committing to any training at our Academy so there’s no embarrassing moment where they realised they’ve actually enrolled on to the completely wrong course! Yes, there are two completely different job descriptions for […]

Are you looking to do a Makeup course in London?

Are you looking to do a Makeup course in London?

Makeup Course London We get so many different types of delegates at our Training Academy, from women who want to change their career altogether and become personal stylists, to women such as makeup artists and hairdressers who want to add Personal styling as a service to their existing client base. One growing type of delegate that we’ve been meeting a lot of these past couple of years are the women who were originally looking to do a makeup course and instead finds herself choosing a career in personal styling instead.   She’s creative and wants to work for herself and […]

Shoulders Back, Head up High!

Shoulders Back, Head up High!

Summer is the time of year when we’re all supposed to be showing off our well-toned and tanned legs right? Yes! Even more so on a hot summer night out, I can hear you say! But what if you’ve got a client who doesn’t like her legs, are you supposed to force her into liking them and convince her there’s nothing wrong with them? Well the answer is no… In the world of Personal styling you will find there are those very few women who seriously have nothing wrong with them but are so self critical that they simply won’t show […]

The Best Preparation For Tomorrow Is Doing Your Best Today!

  When my delegates come for the 1 week Intensive Training course, day 1 or rather the 1sthour where we get to know each other can seem pretty daunting. Whilst reading out the week’s agenda clients can get pretty overwhelmed, because there’s just so much on it! From personal shopping, to wardrobe styling to colour analysis to a real client practice, to the photo shoot and finally to the business planning. I can always sense their anxiety questioning firstly how will we fit it all in? Secondly will they be able to keep up? And thirdly, will they be any […]

The Teacher becomes the Student

The Teacher becomes the Student

At our Academy we meet so many different types of delegates from all kinds of backgrounds: different ages, different career backgrounds as well as different cultures and although I’m excited to meet and train them all there’s one kind that even I’m a little intimidated by. Who is it? It’s the Teacher/ Trainer! Why? Because as you’ll all get to find out when you meet me on day one of the training is that I haven’t got a training background nor do I come from a fashion background. I instead have a maths degree and after years in the corporate […]

What are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for?

What I love as my job as a trainer more than anything else is meeting the varied delegates that attend the training. In particular when I do the training as a one on one, I really get to know that delegate well and more often than not I learn just as much from them as they do from me. Take Helen Gormey for instance; when I had the brief chat with her on the phone prior to her attendance I discovered she’s a true professional in world of coaching and psychotherapy. With more letters against her name I was honored […]
