Since graduating SOS, I have worked with a TON of celebrities and high-level stylists. Shakira, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Giselle Bundchen (3 times!), Alicia Keys, Drake, and Pharrell are just a few of the celebrities that I have worked with. My highest profile job so far was my recent work with Beyoncé on the Formation video, the Superbowl 50 Halftime show and the just released Lemonade video. I have no doubt that I would not be where I am today without 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.
School of Style was really helpful in learning the fundamentals of styling and key terms used in the industry. The way that Luke and Lauren present the content was really easy to understand and very applicable in the real world. I’m lucky enough to have had a thriving career as a NYC fashion stylist for many years since gradating.
I just recently graduated from School of Style’s online class, which has allowed me to be a full time college student and SOS student simultaneously. I’m blown away by the amount of job emails I receive every day through the Style Society alumni club. Taking this class gave me the confidence, knowledge and support that I needed to move up in my fashion styling career.
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.
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.
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.
When I moved to LA I knew I wanted to do styling full time but I didn’t have the connections to open those big doors for me. School of Style opened those doors, and also gave me the tips and tools I needed to compliment what experience I already had. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today in my styling career.
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.
After receiving my certificate, I’ve worked for celebrity stylists Erin Walsh, and Johnny Wujek. Now I work as a Full time E-commerce stylist from Dailylook.com and have worked for Agaci.com and GSlovesme.com running daily photo shoots with agency models. I am living my dream.
