Course Overview

About

Style is more than the clothes we wear. In this Certificate of Personal Styling course you will deep dive into our exclusive methodology of style and psychology, to understand why we buy what we buy and wear what we wear. In the classroom you will learn the systems to navigate human behaviour, colour application, structure, flow and body shape, before going onto conduct practical exercises including styling your first client.

By choosing to do this course in-person, you will enjoy a hybrid study format of 5 days hands on, practical learning in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Perth, and 6 months online exercises and career support.

Who is this course for?

Your love for fashion goes beyond the garments to an empathetic understanding that a great outfit can impact our confidence, identity and even the planet. You’re ready to unlock the practical skills to empower others through personal style too.

You may be relieved to know that you do not have to be able to sew or have a three year degree on your resume. In fact, 80% of ASI students don’t come from a fashion background at all. You just need to start with curiosity, a creative eye and a desire to connect with people. There are no prerequisites and you can complete this course alongside everyday life; whether you’re up-skilling, switching careers, a parent, or wanting to fast-track into the workforce.
