Fashioning a New Career

“Fashion fades, but style is eternal,” Yves Saint Laurent famously said. Stylists know this and have built careers on the understanding of this concept. LaSalle College Vancouver’s online Fashion Stylist program teaches students how to refine their sense of style and turn it into a rewarding career, by working on styling projects, both commercial and personal, with expert instructors. Students learn to balance their own aesthetic vision with the needs of their client and create style magic.

Whether it’s an editorial project, working with an artist or a client who wants to update their closet, the Fashion Styling program teaches students how to deliver style advice that goes beyond fashion.

Fashion stylists are above all curious people who are passionate about fashion. They are constantly on the lookout in order to remain up-to-date with the latest trends. Their knowledge of past and present fashion trends allow them to engage in different activities such as conceptualising, creating and developing styles. Fashion stylists must be highly flexible in adapting to different work situations. Above all, future fashion stylists must have a desire to help people. In fact, fashion stylists have to demonstrate empathy in order to understand their sense of self-esteem and their self-perception. The work of fashion stylists relies heavily on the strength of their professional networks. At the end of this program, the graduate will be able to work as a freelance stylist or on behalf of a company or as a fashion agency stylist, fashion consultant or image consultant.
