Jogintė Kavaliauskaitė - 10 Day Mentorship
Just in 10 days, I’ve learned more about the fashion styling industry than in 2 years of studying fashion at University.
Joining the Styling Mentorship Program was the best opportunity to explore what it means to be a Fashion Stylist and learn the necessary skills.
Emily kindly let me into her world and shared her enormous experience and professional knowledge with me. She always goes above and beyond with endless dedication and helps in every way she can. She is the best to learn from!
Thank you very much for this experience, I am so grateful for it. And I feel much more confident now about styling!
Alfred Humphries - 10-Day Mentorship
This Mentorship is a dream come true! I have always wanted to find my way into the fashion world and when I saw this mentorship I thought it was too good to be true. Let me tell you it is everything you think it is and more. The hands-on experience with shoots and learning the day-to-day of a stylist from someone who knows so much about the industry has changed my life. Emily is ready and eager to answer all your questions. Emily is full of passion for her job and her knowledge is a great gift. I love every second!”
Cecilia Walker - 10-Day Mentorship
I stumbled upon Emily’s mentorship on LinkedIn whilst looking for a job in a different industry that I didn’t want. I thank my lucky stars that I found this mentorship, as it’s moved my life towards a purpose that I didn’t even know I had.
From the get-go, Emily has been super approachable, no question is too silly or crazy, the patience and nurturing that goes into every mentee is something that you won’t find anywhere else, especially in Fashion. It’s personal and molded around the direction you’d like to take. I’ve been on sets that would have taken me years to have got on to if it weren’t for this mentorship. Alike, I’ve met people on the same level, who want to collaborate and grow as fashion stylists together. The learning is thorough as well as so much fun, I am now submitting images from my shoot to magazines with the possibility of them getting published. Thanks to Emily I feel confident in my ability to be the best Fashion Stylist possible.
Adessa Mias- 10-Day Mentorship
I’ve learned so much during my mentorship, I’ve been able to have inside access to styling in different settings, and now understand the entire process from mood board to returns.
Emily’s talent for not only styling but mentoring is something not to be forgotten, and I have now learned skills that I can use forever.
Laura Swift - 10-Day Mentorship
I’ve had the best experience during the Mentorship Program and have learned so much from Emily. I was able to assist on photoshoots and see the whole process from building a moodboard and creating looks to fashion returns. I also had the opportunity to plan and style my looks for a test shoot to start my portfolio! I now feel confident applying for assisting roles in styling knowing I now have the right experience and knowledge that I couldn’t have found anywhere else. I had the best time and they have helped me so much! I couldn’t thank them enough and would recommend this program straight away to anyone wanting to enter the world of fashion styling!
Olivia Rodney - 6-Day Mentorship
The most I’ve ever learned in just 6 days!
Joining the program was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Before becoming a mentee, I had extremely limited knowledge of what works as a fashion stylist includes, despite studying fashion at university. After my days of conversation, shadowing Emily and her team at a shoot and doing call-ins, and getting to have a test shoot of my own, I now feel that I’m on a great path to deciding which direction I want my career to go in the future. Emily and her team were lovely to work with and to learn from, they always made sure I was comfortable and gave invaluable advice every step of the way. Even opening her archive, contacts, and locations to me for my test shoot - her kindness will always be appreciated! I highly recommend joining this mentorship program, it is easily the best investment of my career and more than worth the price!
