I had been receiving information from Australian Style Institute for a number of years, waiting for the right time. I was working as an urban and regional, in a very corporate environment but lacked the passion of being excited to start each day and I always felt something was missing. The Become a Stylist event, was the very first time in my life that I felt I belonged. I had never been in a room of such amazing people, all like-minded and interested in fashion styling. The information delivered was so powerful, yet relatable – day 1 my idea of fashion was blown out of the water, and by day 2, I was already in the headspace of a stylist. Completing my first editorial fashion shoot was pretty spectacular, and is a piece of work I am extremely proud of. But for me, the biggest achievement since attending Become a Stylist in October 2015, was finding my true self. I enrolled in the Advanced Certificate of Professional Style and Image Course right then and there on the weekend, and have never looked back.
