Diploma in Personal Styling
What is Personal Styling?
Personal Styling is one of the most rewarding areas to work in the fashion industry. Making women feel great about their style and innately wanting to inspire others to create a style they love is at the heart of personal styling. Many people ask us, ‘what’s the difference between fashion styling and personal styling?’. The answer? They ARE linked but personal styling is about the person where as fashion styling is much more about the trends! Personal styling is built around giving bespoke personal advice based on your clients needs and what suits them. It teaches you how to truly understand your clients and their needs and provide the right advice for them.
Who teaches our Diploma?
On our Diploma in Personal Styling you will learn from fashion industry expert and personal stylist Julie Cobbe. Successful on RTE’s Dragons Den, Julie set up Stylefish in 2009 and has succeeded in growing a fashion and personal styling business while teaching over 3,000 women fashion classes in Ireland and the UK. She is passionate about sharing her passion for personal styling and growing a client base and takes a max of 6 women on any one course.
What previous experience do I need?
Many women who complete our Diploma course have no background in fashion. This course provides the perfect route into the fashion world aswell as giving you the opportunity to develop your own style and confidence as you learn. Prospective students should have a passion for fashion and for helping others. We are dedicated to creating a fun and practical learning environment with one-to-one mentoring, shop floor styling sessions, tutored support for 6 months following your training, plus an opportunity to be part of our affiliate network of personal stylists on our website afterwards.
Am I ready to offer personal styling services once I finish?
Everyone is different! We believe the first step to being a great personal stylist is having great personal style. Our Personal Styling Diploma has you at it’s core and so it is so important to us that you develop confidence in your own style as part of your training (if you don’t already have it!).
In 2016 Stylefish will begin to offer follow on fashion marketing courses to support our graduates who want to take the next step to start offering one to one consultations should they need it. We will also offer the opportunity for graduates to take part in our one day course to sign up as a Stylefish affiliate so you can use Stylefish materials with your prospective clients to make it simple for you to make money running your own consultations!
