  • About Australian Style Institute

    Your styling success is our focus

    Whether you’re looking to embark on a new career as a professional stylist or further develop your existing skills to launch or grow your own business – Australian Style Institute will provide the training, mentoring and support you need to succeed in Australia’s thriving style and image industry.

    Australia’s style and image industry is rapidly growing and full of opportunity for skilled professionals right now. More and more individuals, corporate groups and businesses are turning to fashion stylists for professional help to improve their image.

    Our professional stylists continue to gain coveted roles and develop inspiring careers in this field. You will find them working in television and media; styling magazine photo shoots; dressing celebrities for runway events; assisting models to develop their careers with prominent agencies; and of course providing personal styling for a vast range of clientele across the country. You too can become a part of Australian Style Institute’s growing network of accomplished professionals.

    Australian style institute’s method of styling is founded in critical principles of human behaviour – enabling our professional stylists to offer a unique perspective on styling that empowers the individual.

    Our innovative training programs prepare you to become a defining influence in your clients’ lives. With our guidance, you will soon find yourself helping people to embrace their personal aspirations; search for and find love; tackle their fears; take on new job opportunities; pursue ambitious career goals; make public appearances; even simply accept and learn to love themselves exactly as they are.

    As we teach you the psychology behind ‘transformational styling’ – which focuses on the inside, to convey the right message on the outside – you too will overcome your personal fears and mental barriers to reveal the best version of yourself. In fact, our trainees consistently tell us that their learning experience with Australian Style Institute had a profoundly positive impact on them, personally and professionally.

  • Founder and Director

    Our innovative leader: Lauren Di Bartolo

    Our Certificate and Advanced Certificate of Professional Styling and Image programs have been developed by Australian Style Institute’s founder and director, Lauren Di Bartolo.

    Lauren’s vast styling experience and notable success have seen her emerge as an industry leader and innovator. She has worked with some of Australia’s largest companies, leading teams and prominent individuals seeking to improve their image.

    Over many years running her own successful styling business, Lauren developed a unique ‘transformational’ approach to styling that addresses both the physical and emotional needs of the client. With a focus on the power of style to transform our perception of self and others, she created her own ‘Styling Success System’ – designed to leave clients looking great and feeling confident.

    Implementing this system in her own work, Lauren quickly generated a large and loyal client base with individuals and corporates seeking out her services Australia-wide. Seeing a growing demand for skilled professionals in her field, Lauren combined her skills in multiple design disciplines with her expertise in human behaviour and vast industry experience, to create a new approach to training fashion stylists incorporating her unique styling methods.

    Regardless of your background, Australian Style Institute’s skilled and supportive trainers will assist you to implement these proven methods in your own work to achieve outstanding results. Whether you’re looking to develop a full-time career, your own thriving business or a supplementary income, we will provide the complete tool kit you need to ensure your styling success.
