Student stories

Meet some of our graduates who have transformed their styling dream into a successful reality since studying with Australian Style Institute.

Six years ago, I started my blog and Instagram account ‘Trash to Treasured’, to assist women in finding stylish clothing at bargain prices. That’s when I decided to study with ASI. As a stylist, I love being able to take the pressure out of a stressful shopping experience and see my clients use the tools I’ve learned to simplify the shopping process.

ASI’s ongoing support has given me the confidence to grow my business and establish myself as a sustainable style expert. I have presented talks and workshops for various councils and businesses, consulted with both female and male clients, organised a runway for VAMFF, and been a guest speaker for ABC radio.

Studying with ASI provided me with relevant styling systems and the confidence to turn my dream into a business. The psychology behind style is a standout component of the courses – after all, styling is more than just putting clothes on a client! Within 5 months of starting with ASI, I have worked as a Women’s Personal Stylist (both in-person and virtually), assisted Fashion Editors and Stylists for Adelaide’s major publications and assisted backstage dressing at VAMFF.

I enrolled with ASI because I was curious about what an editorial stylist does, and whether I had what it takes. Now, I am a Digital Fashion Editor at Harper’s Bazaar China, creating content, writing trend reports, style tips, runway reviews and of course, styling editorial photoshoots.

I was drawn to ASI for their great reputation and style of training which allowed me to continue to work full-time in my corporate job, whilst fast tracking to become a stylist. Within 12 months of studying with ASI I have become an in-store and shopping centre stylist. I have also done assistant dressing for the Brownlow and provide freelance styling services, which have been featured on a mag cover.
