I’ve been working with fashion in one way or another for almost 15 years and when you put it in perspective that makes me feel old, so let’s just swipe that fact away somehow and move on. As some of you already know, I work as Fashion Editor for London based Candid Magazine and on top of that I of course style all my own photo shoots for the blog, but now I want to take it one step further by educating myself to become a certified stylist at RR Style Academy in Stockholm. They provide a completely new stylist education for people who want to work as stylists or personal shoppers, but also to those who already work in the business and want to gain a deeper knowledge and that is the section I’m in.
The education is held by a team of handpicked stylists with huge amounts of experience and they work in all kinds of media as well as for different fashion companies. I’m truly excited to get more in depth knowledge about what being a stylist actually is. I mean, I know how to style myself, but I don’t know much about for example other people’s body types.
During the course you get a thorough review of the subjects you need to master to work in the business. It’s both practical and theoretical and contain subjects such as style personalities, body types, materials, personal shopping, styling and fashion history. They also have external lecturers from the fashion world to get us through topics such as sustainability which is ever so important today. The education ends with both a practical and theoretical exam which need to be approved to get your diploma. I’m more than excited about this opportunity and I hope you’ll follow my journey here on the blog.
