I highly recommend Emily’s mentor program.

 I am extremely grateful for the program and Emily’s mentorship!

 

The Stylist Elixir provided me with hands-on experience and key knowledge fashion schools do not teach. Coming from the U.S., Emily and her assistant, Alfred, were very welcoming and helpful. I learned essential skills stylists need to have entering the industry, and received valuable feedback on my resume & and portfolio. I especially enjoyed the fact that class sizes were intimate, making it easy to ask questions at any time.
