This summer I completed a styling course with the London School of Styling.
Why styling? Well, I have always been interested in this part of the industry, and after delving into the world of PR (which was far too many swear words for my liking) and dressing models for runway shows (I can only see a model’s wobbly bits – yes wobbly bits so many times) that I fancied more of a challenge.
So low and behold, I enrolled on the London School of Styling’s course which I found on twitter through @UKFashionIntern – if you don’t follow them already, FOLLOW. They are really good at advertising internships, paid placements and helpful courses such as these. (Don’t worry they didn’t pay me to plug, but if you’re reading UKFI – hi!)
This part-time course held classes on a Saturday every few weeks which was perfect for those with 9-5 jobs! Beginning with a theory class, four photoshoots followed: womenswear, personal styling, menswear and advertising, and the course finished with a tips and tricks class.
Keep an eye out over the next few weeks for mini lookbooks from my shoots – I’d love to know what you think, and a final review of the course!
Are you interested in styling? Did you take this course or thinking of taking one?
