Locked Down or Leveling Up During COVID-19?

To our much loved ASI community and beyond,

Firstly, we hope you are staying safe and healthy as we all do our part to protect the greater public. For us, we’re working harder than ever, but from the safety of our homes (who knew there’d be a day we’d be swapping our Louboutin’s for slippers and sustainable Stella McCartney for loungewear?)

Whilst we are all navigating these times together, we wanted to share with you some things in place at Australian Style Institute. We have looked at new ways to minimise the disruption for students, so your aspirations don’t have to wait.

Firstly, everyone’s safety comes first. Based on the current Government measures required for the education sector, we have postponed our in-person training temporarily, and we look forward to the time when we can welcome students back through our classroom doors.

As we all learn to adapt to necessary isolation, it has become apparent that we are being presented with a unique window that is a life rarity. Many are looking for creative ways to be mentally stimulated, reassessing career satisfaction and thinking about how they can be best set up for success when we exit this period. Did you know that many of the most powerful and iconic brands we know today like Uber, Whatsapp, Airbnb, and Pinterest were founded during the recession of 2008-2009?

As the saying goes ‘the day you plant the seed is not the day you watch it grow’. For our students, they are using this time to plant their seeds and upskill. Not only is it keeping them grounded amidst the chaos, it’s allowing them to take back control of their lives.

The good news is, we have transformed our renowned Certificate of Fashion Styling Online course into an immersive virtual learning experience. With our first online course intake commencing April 6th, 2020, you can begin your journey to styling success, one virtual lesson at a time, and from anywhere in the world (and even in your slippers!).

In this course, you will gain a deep understanding of human behaviour and how it impacts style, conduct a practical client consultation, explore marketing strategies to launch your business, plus much more.

With the Certificate of Fashion Styling Course Online course, our students experience:

  • 40+ hours of trainer-led virtual classes
  • Unlimited industry professional mentoring via video, phone and email
  • Access to our exclusive Online Resource Library and exercises
  • Networking opportunities through our professional agency partners
  • Extensive community support from existing students and alumni
  • Leading accreditation to become a successful professional stylist

Right now, the ability to fast-track your upskilling in just 6-months and be supported by a community in the process is golden.

What’s also become apparent over this time is the varied and new opportunities opening up in the world of styling. We are offering additional mentoring sessions, masterclasses and social hangouts so you will be equipped more than ever to embrace these exciting career pathways:

  • Personal Stylist- People looking for direction as they become more discerning in their purchases.
  • Virtual Stylist- The world is embracing technology, from virtual styling to online deliveries.
  • In-store Stylist- Retailers are seeking new, integrated approaches to build customer traffic.
  • Personal Shopper- People are turning to trained experts for style advice and assistance.

As we maximise this time to fuel our passions and creativity, it’s of course important to recharge. We’ve compiled our Top 5 Binge-worthy Fashion Content on Netflix we’re loving right now, and spoiler, you’re going to get hooked!

We want to thank you all for your continued support during this period. To our students, graduates and Alumni, your determination and positivity continue to inspire us everyday.

As always, our HQ team, educators and mentors are committed to seeing your seeds grow into something spectacular on the other side. We are all in this together.

We look forward to welcoming new faces to our online classroom!

The ASI Team.
