Graduate feedback about this course: 

I have been searching for a “Certified Color Analysis” course for a long time, and I am happy that I chose the Fashion Stylist Institute. I was looking for a course where I can learn how to work with clients, how to do color analysis and especially how to drape fabric. I also wanted to learn how to explain to clients what the best colors she/he can choose. A lot of fashion schools offer this class offline, but, unfortunately, students who live in another city/country cannot take the class. I think that online courses from Fashion Stylist Institute are a great opportunity for people who would like to improve their knowledge but cannot travel/change their place of living. I also think that distance learning is a very useful system of education, because you can learn at your own pace. I think that the website of the Fashion Stylist Institute is well organized, easy to use and well designed.


I have thoroughly enjoyed the Color Analysis Certification Course.  Performing a color analysis on a client is an area that I felt less than confident about - but your system is simple and easy to understand and easy to demonstrate and explain to a client. I look forward to using your drape system and color analysis tools in my business.  In addition, the color fans you have designed are beautiful - I think clients will love them. The course modules, assignments and resources were fun and full of up-to-date and interesting information - I look forward to the ongoing mentoring and continuous learning opportunities you provide. Thank you, P Dunning, USA 


I found a lot of sites who provided and offered these type of services but actually it didn’t convince me for two reasons: 1- I was looking for professionalism 2- How can I get this practical knowledge online? Well I can’t deny that these researches took a lot of my time until I found “Fashion Stylist Institute” F.S.I. When I read about the courses details, I felt the professionalism and credibility. I browsed many sites before I joined F.S.I. so I can judge efficiently. Thanks GOD, finally I took my decision and enrolled at Color Analysis Consultant course. There are a lot of resources, manuals, forms, video tutorials which helped me in my practical training. They are such an informative, consistence, and professional courses. Also I should mention the great support of my teacher who helped me by putting me on the right track quickly and answered all of my questions immediately. The program of the course not only gave me the specific informations about color analysis but also provide me with all informations and tools to start my own business, so I can stand alone in this competitive field to be a distinctive Color Analysis Consultant . Now I know my goal clearly. Thank you Mrs. Gillian for your help. I really enjoyed the course and I’ll continue with F.S.I. to complete those wonderful and amazing courses. Yassen , Jeddah

Elana Magen

"I truly have nothing negative to say. I chose this course above others because the modules contained everything I was looking for but the stand out was that you get help starting your business right away and resources to purchase start-up materials I guess the only thing I would like is if the Institute had a partner that would give us a deal on supplies. But, I think my assignments were graded quickly and I appreciated a check in email when I hadn't signed in in a while. Overall, excellent course and would recommend it!"
