5 DAY PERSONAL STYLIST MASTERCLASS WORKSHOP
“A Fashion Stylist makes clothing items look good by the use of a model, whereas a Personal Stylist makes the client look good by the artful use of clothing”.
Personal Styling refers to the consulting to individual clients on the selection of clothing, shoes and accessories to work in with their lifestyle budget and needs. It is not about selling clothing or even fashion in some cases, but enhancing the clients image. Over the past ten years personal styling has become significantly more recognised as a career with an increasing demand for the service. It is now, however a crowded, unregulated arena, which makes it increasingly difficult to achieve this as a full-time career without the right direction and resources.
This 5 day masterclass workshop focuses on all aspects of personal styling, image consulting and styling for television & media, all of which your facilitator, Caitlin has worked extensively across. The masterclass workshop is developed and facilitated by Caitlin Stewart who is one of Australia’s leading Personal Stylist’s and Image Consultant with 15 years experience in the game. Caitlin is still actively working across these key areas of personal styling and has a database of over 1000 personal styling clients. Caitlin currently works with Australia’s finest in media and professional services.
Caitlin has also been an educator at one of Sydney’s top private fashion business colleges for over 10 years so knows how to deliver relevant and engaging content as a professional presenter. Caitlin is still active in the industry and on a daily basis undertakes a broad range of styling projects which you can view via her comprehensive CV below.
Whilst any form of training will provide enrichment, the entrepreneurial nature of the styling industry does not require you to have formal qualifications and in most cases clients are not interested in a certificate in your hand from an unaccredited course, rather who you know, what you have done and how you do it. Many people Caitlin has mentored have succeeded by positioning themselves in the right place and knowing the in's and outs of the game.
What you do require is the savvy ‘know how’ and a step by step practical approach on how to network, get clients, the process behind conducting a styling session, the nitty gritty ins and out's of a competitive industry and effectively marketing yourself as a brand to ultimately succeed.
The personal styling five day masterclass does not provide you with a qualification - we are not a college, it provides you with a raw and real step-by-step hands on “how to”. It covers client methodology right down to the action business building side. The masterclass workshop provides countless tips and expert insider advice over the course of the week from someone who is actively doing this now. With 15 years experience and over 1000 clients in her database Caitlin is a wealth of information and now considered an expert in her field.
If you are passionate about assisting people look and feel great, have the drive and desire to do this as a business, but just need the comprehensive ‘know how’, motivation and mentoring then this is the masterclass for you.
Who is this masterclass workshop best suited to?
Those who are new to the personal styling industry and are yet to construct their business. We start from scratch and by the end of the five days aim to have all the foundations in place for you to start your business immediately with a step by step process already in play. By day 5 many attendees have already set their businesses up and we are well on the way to have your branding set!
When Caitlin started her career she did not have the assistance of online marketing and social media. It was very much about foot on the pavement old fashioned networking, which she still very much relies on as her business model today.

You are in a great place and the time is now if this what you want to do.
