This program is perfect for those at any point of their fashion careers, whether they're exploring the idea, just starting out, and even those that are already established in their field. I've been a professional wardrobe stylist for four years, and I found the 5 Days of Fashion Styling to be an incredibly special and invaluable experience. Outside of the exciting assignments, speakers, and access to Vogue resources, the connections and lifelong lessons that I left with are what make this course all the more worthwhile.

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

The Campus

Condé Nast College is situated in a historic building at Bedford Square, in Central London.

The area was built between 1775 and 1783 and is one of the best preserved set pieces of Georgian architecture in London.

The square has had many illustrious residents including Lord Eldon, one of Britain’s longest-serving and most celebrated Lord Chancellors, who lived in the largest house in the square for many years. Other famous residents include the second Duke of Devonshire; William Butterfield, an architect; and H H Asquith, a former Prime Minister.

The square takes its name from the main title of the Russell family, the Dukes of Bedford, who owned much of the land in what is now Bloomsbury.

Bedford Square is in the heart of Bloomsbury, an exciting area for academia and the arts; originally made famous by Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Set.

The College is a short walk from the headquarters of Condé Nast, which our students visit as part of their exposure to the professional world.

The fashion styling course taught me a lot of notions that I wasn't aware of and after those five days I felt much more prepared to face future challenges. Click to read more. Valerio Rossi, One Week Fashion Styling, Spring 2019
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
