Why not offer Personal Styling to your existing database of clients and double your income?

At our training academy we train so many different types of women but a growing group is the woman who already is self-employed, either full or part-time.

How to become a Personal stylist PART 2

The first thing you need to ask yourself is what sort of stylist do you want to be? A Fashion Stylist or a Personal Stylist? Because the two couldn’t be more different! A Fashion stylist is someone who selects the clothing for published editorial features, print or television advertising campaigns, music videos and any public appearances made by celebrities.

Take our online course in personal styling and start a new career!

Like any business we have had to move with the times so looking back from when we were teaching small groups of women in Central London makes us realise just how far we have come now we offer online courses to anyone with access to a computer! It took us some to venture into offering our  online course because for so long we procrastinated about how we could get our message and delivery across without having delegates able to feed off each other at our beautiful training venue. How clearly would online students and hear us passionately deliver our message […]
