I genuinely endorse this course because this course has enabled me to blend past and current skills with my love of fashion and styling. Now I have turned a dream into a rewarding and satisfying business venture and I have never been happier!
The British College of Professional Styling Course is all-encompassing and not only teaches you the theory and practical elements of styling but also incorporates the business aspect which is a vital component.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to develop the skills to become a professional stylist and gain freelance or full-time work within the industry. You learn so much more than just about being a fashion stylist.
This course not only gave me an in-depth knowledge in styling, but a career for life. It is career that I have wanted for several years and now I finally have the skills and knowledge to fulfil my dream job.
Now that I have completed my course, looking at how far I have come, I realise how hard I worked to complete the assignments and how much confidence I have gained throughout the process. I feel very proud of myself.
Since graduating, I have opened my own business … I offer a fun and personalised styling service, which can transform people’s look and bring their natural style to life. This course has given me the confidence to do so.
My name was put forward by an established designer as a nomination for an award at the Liverpool Fashion Awards. The competition was tough as it was open to the whole UK … I was awarded Best Fashion Stylist in the UK in June 2017
What I enjoyed most about the course was learning about colours and conducting colour analysis which helps a great deal with wardrobe culling. This is guiding me to focus on the image consultancy/personal shopping side of styling.
I couldn’t have dreamt that the British College of Professional Styling could, in such a short time, help me find the direction I always desired in life. I am now helping women rediscover themselves and through this course, I discovered myself.
Now I have completed this course, I can confidently say that this course has built the foundation for my successful and creative career in wardrobe consulting, personal styling or even fashion PR in the future.
