Our Personal Styling course teaches you everything you need to know to survive in the fashion industry.
Here are some benefits of adding a qualification behind your name –
A Strong Knowledge Base Takes You Further:
Although one may possess a natural talent for styling, it is still important to have background knowledge into this art form.
An eye for fashion is simply not enough- there is theory behind this craft! One must consider fashion analytics such as body shaping, colour coding, among others which all contribute to your overall look.
For example, a client may want to wear horizontal stripes due to a contemporary fashion trend however, she may also be fuller figured and want to appear slimmer or curvier. It is the Personal Stylist’s job to know that horizontal stripes make you appear wider, so you’ll have to incorporate the trend in only certain parts of the body such as the bust and hips but not in the stomach area. Thus, creating an hourglass figure.
The AFS Personal Styling course teaches you about these details and gives you insider knowledge needed for the fashion industry.
It is also important for stylists to adapt to new trends quickly and incorporate fresh ideas into their work. Trends quickly turn into fads and become outdated which then has an effect on your styling.
