Ali Levine

I am always able to find work, thanks to the teaching tips and School of Style’s amazing references and job opportunities! I was the Key Stylist on a Music Video for Hi- Lo, which was a fantastic opportunity. I’ve worked with Americas Got Talent, Grace VanderWaal, Lisa Vanderpump, Bellamy Young, loads of private clients, music artists, and many actors and actresses. I’m also working on some big covers for 2017 editorially and I was recently on fox Vegas and KTLA as a fashion expert.



Lydia Michael

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.


Lisa Barry

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.


Paula Parisotto

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.


Genevieve Tate

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.’


Brandy Joy Smith

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.


Keri L. Henderson

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.


Tonya Lombardo

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.


Reichelle Palo

Since graduating in 2011, Reichelle has worked for some of the world’s most powerful stylists including: Rob and Mariel, B. Akerlund, and Arianne Philips. Reichelle has even been able to take on a few jobs as a key stylist for red carpet events, fashion editorials, and press events.
