EDP Norfolk - - PROMOTION -

Nor­wich styling stu­dio and bou­tique The Style Show is launch­ing its first ‘styling school’, with a new in­ten­sive course that teaches the art of styling to those that live and breathe fash­ion.

The five-day course is aimed at those con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer in fash­ion, styling or im­age con­sult­ing, as well as buy­ers and mer­chan­dis­ers look­ing to re­fresh their skills, ca­reer re­turn­ers, fash­ion bloggers, re­tail­ers want­ing to max­imise sales through styling, or those plan­ning to launch a busi­ness this year, from a per­sonal shop­ping ser­vice to an in­de­pen­dent fash­ion bou­tique.

“We’ll be giv­ing away the se­crets of the styling frame­work,” ex­plains The Style Show’s Chrissi Rix, who will lead the course with a pro­fes­sional team of tu­tors with a com­bined 35+ years of styling ex­pe­ri­ence. The Style Show Academy of­fers an in­tro­duc­tion to styling, with each day-long class pro­vid­ing colour train­ing and lessons in shape, fit and ac­ces­sories. Es­sen­tial skills, from cus­tomer care to the art of sell­ing through styling, mar­ket­ing and so­cial me­dia – in­clud­ing In­sta­gram, Face­book, ba­sic pho­tog­ra­phy skills and email news­let­ter ser­vice Mailchimp.

“They’re re­ally use­ful skills for peo­ple in­ter­ested in launch­ing their own busi­ness,” says Chrissi, who has also re­cently launched The Style Show’s on­line bou­tique.

The bou­tique’s homely, stylish at­mos­phere of­fers an in­ti­mate learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. “It’s a friendly, in­ti­mate and hands-on way to learn,” says Chrissi, who be­lieves her course is a wor­thy and cost-ef­fec­tive com­peti­tor to sim­i­lar cour­ses of­fered in Lon­don. The small-sized groups en­sure stu­dents re­ceive full at­ten­tion and sup­port.

Each par­tic­i­pant will leave with a be­spoke The Style Show Academy styling man­ual, and stu­dents can re­ceive fol­low-up sup­port through a What­sapp group, in which Chrissi and her team will an­swer ques­tions about the ma­te­rial cov­ered in the course.

“I hope the academy will be in­spi­ra­tional, fun and leave peo­ple feel­ing they’ve re­ally learned some­thing,” says Chrissi. By the end of the five days, begin­ner stylists will be primed in the ba­sics, al­low­ing them to bring fun and con­fi­dence back to their clients’ wardrobes.
