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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
SOS helped my career by teaching me the business of styling. Yes, I love fashion, shopping, pulling clothes, and being on set – however learning how to monetize and operate, as a business has been most beneficial. Since graduating from School of Style I’ve worked with Ellie Kemper and Emily Blunt for the Oscars.
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.
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.
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.’
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.
