Your year ahead

We’ve developed this accelerator to help you become this new breed of creative and claim your place in the industry of the future. Take a look at what the next 10 months could hold.

Your place in the industry

From game-changing stylists to agents, fashion directors and bookers – in the next 10 months you’ll learn from the industry’s key players. In this first module you'll be introduced to just a few of the experts appearing on your Fashion Styling: Mastered accelerator.

Set goals

To succeed as a fashion stylist, you need to identify what you want for your career, and have a plan to achieve it. In this module, you will define your goals and develop a framework to help you reach them.

Your aesthetic

Having a defined aesthetic is what gets you booked, what makes you successful and what gives your career longevity. In this module you’ll work on your own aesthetic, then use it to identify the gaps in your work.

Creative process

You’ll explore how to get inspired and turn those ideas into finished work. You will focus on your creative process and develop new ways to research and develop ideas that fit with your goals and aesthetic.

Trends

You’ll look at how and why trends are formed and the ways you can use them in your own work. You will identify a trend, then show your fresh take on it in a styling story.

Editorial

So you’ve got the skills and attitude it takes to be a session stylist, but how do you get your name out there? In this module you will learn how to translate your work into a thriving online presence and strong portfolio, to get more of the clients you want.

Campaigns, shows & celebrities

Styling covers everything from catwalk to campaigns, celebrity to music videos and much more. With our help you’ll learn how to thrive in each area over three distinct modules, so you’ll get noticed and get rebooked.

Campaigns, shows & celebrities

The best stylists move seamlessly between different worlds - from campaigns, to celebrity clients to music videos and more. With our help you’ll learn how to thrive in each area over three distinct modules, so you’ll get noticed, build credibility in each area and get more and better work.

Brand & social

You'll get expert insight on building your brand online, and turning your social presence into a tool to get you better collaborators and booked for better work.

Money & agents

You'll cover the ways you can develop a plan that's both financially rewarding and career building. You'll get insight into the role of an agent: when it's right to consider getting one, making sure you get the right agent and ask enough of them, and how an agent can help further your career. You'll hear from both agents at huge agencies and estabished stylists who've made it with and without representation.

“My mentor offers great criticism and thoughtful insights. She was able to cut through my work and see me as a stylist and person. I can't say enough good things about her. For once in a long time I feel clarity and passion for my next steps. ”
