The course tutorials weren’t just endless text, they made for addictive reading. I couldn’t wait to receive my next tutorial. My assignment research was neither difficult nor arduous.
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.
I learned about everything related to the styling industry, from magazines, to wardrobe and celebrity styling I have able to work in them all because of the comprehensive course.
I would thoroughly recommend The British College of Professional Styling ... The course covers a varied range of styling avenues and this helps to identify the areas of styling one may wish to pursue.
