Learn from fashion industry expert & trainer Julie Cobbe
Our Personal Styling Diploma is thought by Julie Cobbe who has set up and run her own Personal Styling business and fashion school for 6 years now. She has worked with some great fashion and commercial brands both on events, training and styling. This is your opportunity to get insider insight into the fashion world and develop your skills as a personal stylist whatever career path you decide to take.
Practical, hands on training
It’s hands on, fun and creative with ‘doing’ at its core. We believe the best way to learn is to ‘do’ and we support you to make this as simple and as fun as possible. It includes real experience on the shop floor with live styling, assignments running one to one consultations with your friends and family and learning from others in our small training groups. You also get invited to be part of our online personal stylists group page where you will get insider industry knowledge and you can share and learn from other students.
Small training groups
To ensure you can learn at your own pace in a relaxed, fun environment all our courses are restricted to a maximum of 6 people. One of our core goals is to make sure you feel confident about your own personal style first and foremost. Our small training groups means we get to know you and can help you get there too!
Excellent training materials
Our course is jam packed full of training materials, ‘how to’ guides, sample customer consultation forms, colour swatches, online support and tutored assignments to help you succeed both during and after your training.
Geared towards the modern stylist & image consultant
We combine the best of theory learning with hands on practical assignments and time on the shop floor, styling real clients and working on briefs. Read here about one of our training sessions in House of Fraser. We believe the best learning comes from doing and building your confidence in having fun with your client will guarantee your success as a personal stylist and in your own personal styling!
Post study support for the first 6 months.
We are here to help you, answer your queries and ensure you have had enough time to get your head around all your fashion learning! You will complete your assignments also in this time and receive helpful feedback and knowledge to make sure you are confident and fully supported in your learning journey.
Learn at your own pace.
We know everyone learns differently. It is important you feel supported and guided through each part of your training including having one to one time with Julie as part of your assignments. We are there between each class to answer your questions and help you.
Where we can, we invite various guest speakers in to speak to students about various topics including magazine stylists and other personal stylists. Read here about Fashion Editor, Linda Conway talking to students.
