I just want to say again a huge thank you for a wonderful time throughout the course. I feel like I have not only learned so much about fashion & styling but have also learned some new interesting things about myself & how I look at others. I am so happy to have met you and the other ladies.

I loved every part of the course and really enjoyed the way you have structured it. I have also been told on many occasions recently that this course is one of the best available in Ireland, which has made me even happier about having experienced it for myself and having that Diploma issued by you.

I joined your Facebook group and would love to be a part of any future meet ups or if you ever decide to do a refreshers course/day for post graduates of Stylefish.

Julie, you really changed how I look at my own shape and I now finally feel comfortable in myself. I care so much less about what people think and that's down to you and the time spent with you and the ladies on the course. I made great friends who gave me a different way of looking at life and I learned so much from that. Thank you.

Julie,
I hope all is going well with you. I just wanted to drop you a note to acknowledge the learning and the confidence the Stylefish course gave me in my own personal journey. I have let my hair go to it's natural colour. I wear much less make up as my skin doesn’t need it with my natural hair colouring and I have learnt to embrace my soft autumn colours which look good on me. I have grown in confidence and I am happy in my own skin. I wouldn’t have done this without the guidance that I gained from your course. I may never set up or run a business but the personal learning journey for me has been amazing.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Your course was such a godsend to me personally Julie. I learnt so much from you as a person and a teacher. You were so passionate about your subject. I also found new friends and wow what a special bunch they are! Again thank you..you were one of the best phone calls I ever made!

If you are someone who loves fashion or just wants to do something for themselves then do not hesitate in doing Julie’s course! What you will learn about style in terms of actual styling, body shape, style personality, colour analysis etc will literally change your mindset around your own style & will give you the knowledge to be super confident in styling others. Having worked in the fashion industry for 15 years, I thought I knew it all, but, as I wanted to be a stylist I felt I needed something to back it up so I signed up for the course (which is something I never do btw, so this was huge for me). It was the best thing I ever did, hands down. Julie is a gorgeous person, inside & out & a wonderful teacher. I felt so at ease & I quickly realised I didn’t know it all. I learnt so much & really enjoyed being with like minded people. It changed my life. I am now a full time Personal Stylist, living my dream & what’s more is that I’m confident because I’m armed with all the tools that Julie gives her students & is always there with sound, well thought out advice.

Doing the personal styling course with Julie was the best decision I have ever made. If I was never to use it on a professional basis, the experience of the course itself was well worth it. The main thing that I first realised was that Julie actually cares about her students and it’s not something that she does just for money. So often you are disappointed with these kind of things, going away thinking that it was a waste of money. As a complete fashion addict the first thing I learned was how little about style I actually knew. I now buy less clothes but dress better! The group that we were part of was also a huge part my personal experience, we all just clicked and had a laugh while learning. Julie has the patience of a saint !!!! It has given me the confidence to start the process in starting up an online boutique. (it may be a long way from fruition however) Put aside any doubts and go for it, you won’t regret it.

I loved the idea of the supportive community. It's scary going it alone but Julie supports you whatever your personal goals. Whether you want to be part of the community for fun or you want to earn some money!

In one word. Amazing. Julie has set her goals and achieved them & now she is sharing her knowledge and passion with her students.

"It has been such a privilege to be trained by Julie at Stylefish. The course material was detailed and thorough. Julie is an excellent trainer/teacher, she was very attentive and ensured her students had a solid understanding of the course material before moving on to the next section. I absolutely love how the course material and exercises were practical. I learned a lot from the hands on exercises Stylefish incorporated into the training.

I have been working in the legal industry in Toronto, Canada for the past 13 years. It has been a very long search for me to find an alternative career that challenged me to learn and grow in a creative and fun environment and most of all to put me in a position to help other women. Travelling to Dublin for the sole purpose of taking the Personal Stylist training course was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Thank you Julie and Stylefish for helping me create a better life for myself through helping others!"

"My sister and I just recently completed the Diploma in Personal Styling with Stylefish. The reason we choose this course was that it covered a range of modules & it also offered a 6 month support service after the completion. The course was everything we hoped for and more and we especially loved the practicals in Dundrum as these helped us to learn by doing. The class size was perfect as we all really bonded together making the classes friendly, relaxed and enjoyable. Julie had a relaxed teaching approach which put us at ease and which made it easier for us to learn the course materials. She had lots of knowledge and experience to share with us from the fashion industry but most of all she made sure we had fun and enjoyed the course. So glad we choose the Stylefish Diploma in Personal Styling."

Many thanks for participating in the inaugural launch of Deloitte FS Women’s Initiative. It was great to gain an insight into your entrepreneurial journey right through to Dragon’s Den to learning how to build a capsule wardrobe which can cater for both professional and social settings (especially for those of us who always say we have nothing to wear!). The interactive presentation was both relevant and enjoyable for all in attendance. Thank you for your enthusiasm, support, co-operation and professionalism. A pleasure to work with.

Working with Julie is such a pleasure, we have incorporated Stylefish into two client events and had the most wonderful feedback from both. She is so approachable and clients really felt that they “learned”something as well as having the platform to ask lots of questions. This is all done with Julie’s flair and unique sense of fun! We will definitely look at other ways to co-operate with Stylefish in the future.

Julie delivered a Stylefish styling class with a Christmas party theme at our Facebook Sports & Social Club Festive Style Night in November 2013. At relatively short notice, Julie turned around a fantastic event with a gorgeous selection of Christmas party dresses to help us all plan for the party season. Julie has a great passion for what she does and was great at getting the audience involved in the class. Some of us are still working Julie’s tips into how we are now dressing for work every day! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julie for an event.

I would recommend Stylefish without a doubt. We worked with Julie on a series of style training programmes in order to upskill our staff around the country to help them offer more personalised restyling advice to their customers. Julie's training has given Zip Yard staff the confidence to achieve better sales and more credibility in their performance with customers. It has also given us as a brand more confidence in where we are taking our brand at a national level.

Video content is a huge part of our social media strategy and so we decided to partner with Stylefish to create some fashion videos. We felt Stylefish and Julie were just lovely! Very relatable for our audience. We love that Stylefish offers helpful, real and practical advice, which women can relate to. Julie was a pleasure to deal with both in the preparation and planning of the content and as well as on the video shoot itself. She was on hand after production should we need any amendments and helped to proliferate the content once live through her own social media and e-zine channels.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Stylefish for any event either internal or client focused event. What made Stylefish stand out for me was Julie's willingness to tailor the event to my requirements and the consultative approach to putting the event together. We received excellent feedback from attendees.

Thank you so much for helping us to organise our 4th Annual EY Christmas Fashion Event and for adding your fantastic style, positive attitude and professionalism to the evening. This was our largest internal women’s event with 125 ladies in attendance and it went off without a hitch. Your style workshop prior to the fashion show went down a treat and all the ladies got something from it, whether it was the confidence to ditch the black, or the justification to buy that special coat! The 6 EY ladies that modelled for the evening felt a million dollars and this was down to you making the time prior to the night to meet with the girls and get them comfortable with the looks you styled them in. They all loved it and their confidence was evident when they hit the catwalk! We are already planning other fashion and style events that we can partner with you on and I look forward to working with you again. Thank you!

We all loved our session with you today. As the event organizer it’s very rare that I actually benefit from the advice being given at an event, so it was lovely to be included! You have a lovely professional and personable presentation style which works so well. You really hit the mark!

Hello Julie,

I hope you are keeping well. This is Sarah from the Weight Watchers photo shoot for the RTE Guide.

I got so many compliments, even strangers coming up to me and asking if I was the girl from the magazine, now I have such a big ego! It was an amazing experience and it was wonderful to meet you.

Thank you very much,
