The Fashion Styling course gives you an insight into a week in the life of a fashion stylist. Throughout the week I felt so inspired and motivated as it is full of tasks as well as guest speakers. You will not only be learning about the hard workings of a stylist but also you will be learning from fellow students which by the end of the week become amazing friendships. Gillian O'Gorman, One Week Fashion Styling, June 2022

I really enjoyed having the guest speakers come in and also the visit to Vogue House. I found a lot of inspiration from Sophie Stevens and her field of work. I also liked that a previous student came in to discuss her work as a street style photographer. I really enjoyed the experience and it helped me see that there's a lot more to styling than just picking out clothes for clients. Julia Klasicka, One Week Fashion Styling, March 2018
The fast paced course kept me busy until the late evening, researching and expanding my curiosity into the world of styling. To read more click here. Jason Tompkins, One Week Fashion Styling, October 2017
