  • Career Prospects


    Fashion is undoubtedly one of the most exciting and dynamic professions. From celebrity culture to catwalk chic, we are captivated by the glamour and beauty of this industry.

    The way people dress and style themselves has a huge impact on our first impressions of them. It is the job of fashion stylists and image consultants to help everyone from models and film stars to politicians look their best.

    As a stylist, you use clothes to communicate. This could be simply to make someone look and feel great, or it could be for a specific artistic or commercial purpose, such as to create an inspiring image or sell a clothing collection.

    Jobs in this industry can be highly lucrative, and there are plenty of opportunities to travel. You might work with fashion designers, artists, musicians or brands, and you could be employed or work freelance. In short, the options are endless.

    Opportunities for stylists and consultants 

    To give you a more in-depth idea of the sorts of roles available, stylists often find work in areas such as:

    Personal styling / Image consulting

    This focuses on enhancing a client’s look through the selection of clothing and accessories that compliment their features. As well as clothes and accessories, stylists can recommend skincare and haircare options, and provide etiquette consulting.

    Personal shopping

    This overlaps with personal styling, but is more focused on purchasing items on a client’s behalf.

    Wardrobe / show styling

    This involves styling characters for TV shows, films, stage shows, fashion shows, concerts and so on.

    Editorial styling

    These roles are centred on choosing clothes and accessories for models to wear for magazine, newspaper and advertising shoots.

    Corporate styling

    In this field, specialists may be responsible for styling senior professionals so they make the right impression when meeting other business leaders. Corporate styling also refers to designing or recommending company uniforms.

    Photography studio styling

    Working in studios, these stylists are responsible for preparing clients’ outfits, hairstyles and more.
