The Image Academy is one of Europe's most rapidly growing image consultancy schools. For this reason, The Image Academy, led by two of Europe’s most enterprising stylists has teamed up with Style Icon Ltd in London who are offering fashion forward styling courses in London, UK from August 2009 onwards.
We provide fashion forward styling courses that have been set up specifically to offer a new level of professionalism and expertise to wannabe stylists, PR professionals, boutique owners, high street retailers, fashion students and just about anyone who has a passion for fashion. Our tutors have extensive experience in all areas of image consulting, personal and fashion styling, make-up artistry and corporate training and development.
Image consultancy training across the world is renowned for being old fashioned, run by theorists, and offer very little insight into the actual making of a successful styling consultancy. This ultimately leads to a frustrated and disappointed candidate who comes out of training with little insight into a very dynamic and rewarding industry. Now with the arrival of The Image Academy, students can expect new insights into how to harness the power of social media and other novel business practices to ensure a successful career.
Shopping for a living has got to be one of the most desirable jobs out there and with the rise and rise of style reality programmes, there is no shortage of fashionistas queuing up to learn the ropes to make their mark on the fashion world! But contrary to popular belief, making a career out of being a stylist is certainly no easy feat.
Each course is given by an experienced tutor provided by The Image Academy who will provide real-life examples and experiences throughout the course notes, this practical knowledge will benefit all students throughout the 5 days. On the final day, all students will be given practical hands on experience of sourcing stores for each client based on their shape, height, size, budget and style and will also participate in make-up demonstrations.
So why should you choose to train with The Image Academy over any other styling agency:
