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.
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.
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.’
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.
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.
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.
SOS has helped my career by transforming me into a high fashion editorial monster in the best sense. After taking the classes I have become more confident and versatile in the industry. I’ve gained tons of connections and have already worked on some huge jobs.
Since graduating from SOS I’ve worked Runway, Grand Theft Auto, a Dr. Dre TV show, a Blake Griffin Vizio commercial, The Bachelorette, The Bachelor, Chelsea Lately, After Lately, Ray Donovan, Joan Rivers and the list goes on. Right now I don’t have a website, I’m too busy already!
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.
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.
