Graduate feedback about this course: 

The fashion stylist course was for me the ideal course, as I could start any moment I wanted and didn't have to wait after the summer as lots of other institutes work like this. The modules were very clear and interesting, also the same for the tutorials. Every step to become a fashion stylist was well explained and enough opportunities to exercise the required skills. Feedback from the teachers came in very fast (very helpful if you are anxiously waiting for your grade) and that helped in speeding up the pace of the course for myself. Thank you again! Warm regards, S. Doerahman, Certified Fashion Stylist, Netherlands


Few months ago, I was looking for fashion schools in my area. But unfortunately I didn't find any since this field isn't popular to be taught in my country. And then I thought: "Who needs a school if there is Internet!" I started searching for online schools about Image consulting and checking their reputations, study process and prices. Until I found FSI and I enrolled in Certified Fashion Stylist Course. The Portal, the modules and the way you check the study material is easy to use and to understand. The course puts your feet to the first step to your career in fashion styling world. I loved being able to check the modules again and again until I absorb the material. I loved how flexible it is! I don't have to wait for a class to begin or for a ignoring some materials to follow up with the instructor. I can easily access the portal whenever I want. Examples, styling games and quizzes gave me the ability and the confident to talk about fashion, body shapes and facial shapes not as a fashion lover but also as a fashion student. Knowing new other people who share the same interest with you and networking with them is the awesomest part to increase your knowledge, share experience is so valuable. I'm thankful to find such course and to learn new materials will help me in starting my business in fashion. Best Regards, Meshael J, Certified Fashion Stylist, UAE
