The purpose of the club is to provide further support once students have graduated from our program. We provide direct introductions to key industry players to help further facilitate the success of our graduates. Style Society® is one of the many powerful and unique ways in which we help our students to achieve their dreams and goals as stylists.

Having a previous fashion education from another university didn’t compare to learning what we did in such a short time at the School of Style. It’s a different experience working with people currently in the industry vs. people who worked in the industry 25 years ago. School of Style’s main focus is getting you to work immediately. No other program has your ‘personal’ career development and interests at heart.
The best thing about SOS is the opportunity it affords you once you graduate. I would have never made the connections I did or have the opportunities I’ve had if I had not taken the SOS course. In just a short time I’ve received an internship and a paid assistant stylist position through referrals from people I met on SOS jobs.
Being a lifestyle blogger, my career focus was a little different from many others in the course. I wanted knowledge to give me confidence to write about fashion. This intense 9-day course provided so much more than what I expected. Luke’s realist education about the world of styling provides a roadmap on how to be successful in this industry, without giving false expectations.
Thanks to SOS and the Style Society grad program, I’ve worked a lot with stylist Marni Senofonte as well as Beyoncé on ‘Project Lemonade’, her Super Bowl performance, the ‘Formation’ video and the ‘Formation World Tour’. I’ve also worked on two seasons of ‘How to Get Away with Murder.’
The classes provide incredible information. It would take you years of school to be able to extract the same amount of relevant information. SOS teaches you everything you need to know to be successful- with none of the fluff. Luke and Lauren keep it real and tell you exactly how it is and are also there to answer questions, support you and help you make connections in the industry.
I’ve always loved fashion and couldn’t wait to become a Stylist. As a graduate you become eligible for all the internships that are available, and the staff really try to support you as much as possible! I cannot wait to get my career started as a fashion stylist…all thanks to School of Style.
Without a doubt, the best thing about School of Style is the network and opportunities. SOS sends high-profile job opportunities in the fashion industry to grads frequently as well as invites to some really cool networking events.
If you are interested in a career as a wardrobe, or personal stylist you cannot not attend School of Style. The knowledge, insider wisdom, experience and opportunities you will gain in a relatively short amount of time would otherwise take you years to acquire. Plus you’ll get jobs immediately after graduating. It’s a no brainer.
SOS has showed me how to run a styling business, taught me the fundamentals of the industry and opened doors that I didn’t know were possible to open. My first job was with Bea Akerlund’s styling team. We shot two of Beyonce’s music videos for her first visual self-titled album. Through SOS I also worked with Rushka Bergman on Nicki Minaj’s Pink Print World Tour.
SOS taught me the core foundation of styling as a business, how to make it profitable and what it takes to make a great assistant. With those tools I’ve been able to freelance and assist some amazing stylists, having learned so much though the amazing hands-on experience of the classes.
