Who is our student
For anyone who would like to start their career in styling, this course covers everything to prepare you successfully to join the industry, whether you are looking to set up your own business, whether you want to be a fashion stylist, or whether you want to join a retail team, we have all the expertise to help launch you into this exciting new career.
You may also be a stylist who has started out with little training and not have the confidence in some aspects of the job. The Stylist academy is devised in such a way that you can pick and choose the modules that you need training on.
Many established stylists still need to keep up with the ever changing diversities of this job, and therefore areas such as social media are key to keeping you at the top of your game. This course will train you specifically on how to use social media successfully in the styling world.
HOW WE ENSURE WE ARE UNIQUE
Unlike many styling course companies, we are an active styling business as well and so not only can we offer work experience for you , but also job opportunities. We only offer work to those stylists who have completed our course to ensure they deliver the same high standards.
All of our trainers are qualified to train- this is essential to keeping the standards of a training academy. Each trainer is also an entrepreneur themselves with existing successful companies, which ensures their skills are practised and up to date.
We promise to support our students beyond the intensive training week. The week is intense with so much information to take in. So many of my past students over the past 10 years still keep in contact and feel very comfortable in asking me advice. We love to create a stylist network and organise gatherings so that you feel part of a group of likeminded people to inspire and energise you.
We offer a days revision which gives you the opportunity to come back with your group and discuss your progress to date and revise areas you feel you need extra help on.

I decided to sign on for the Personal Styling Course on the year, in fact the week of a very big birthday & celebrated it on the day with most of my other team students after a shopping day, just what I needed as a moral booster!It was a steep learning curve, with a huge amount of information to absorb, but as it was close to my heart, well worth it.
Isobel is such a professional, with a wealth of knowledge, having worked in the fashion industry for many years & knows her brands impeccably - showing me which brands & price points I could relate to - great for me personally & for future stepping out on my own to advise clients!
The course was a wonderful experience & I’m thoroughly glad I did it! Thank you Isobel (& of course the rest of your team!!)
