Celebrity stylist and designer Jane Michael Ekanem officially begins the School of Styling Lagos to provide styling education for budding stylists.

The first set held on the 13th, 20th and 21st May 2017 at the Jane Michael Studio in Lagos, with the fashion entrepreneur tutoring students in Basics of Styling, Ethics of Styling, Skill of Improvisation, Business of Styling, and a Practical Session as part of an Intensive Fashion Styling Certification Course to kick off the school’s maiden set of styling classes.

The practical session of the Intensive Fashion Styling Course involved a 3-step project that culminated in the students styling celebrities Okiemute Ighorodje, Bolanle Olukanni and Aderonke Adefalujo and as their respective muses in groups A, B, and C respectively.

According to Jane Michael “For the longest time during my earlier years as a stylist, I had always wished there would have been some form of training I could have benefited from. As my skill and appreciation for my craft grew, it became paramount that I create a center of learning that can properly guide young styling creatives to achieving their dream of starting fashion conversations through proper selection and arrangement of fashion pieces. It is our hope that by employing industry experience through professional educators in guiding a stylist’s dream, we can foster every student’s distinctive style nature, educating them on how to challenge set patterns and define the future of fashion styling”

The conception of the School of Styling Lagos aptly epitomizes it as the fashion school for style visionaries. A truly modern styling institute that tailors learning in accordance with the interests and needs of each student who is enthusiastic about fashion styling. Through innovative practical approach across all channels of learning, the School of Styling operates with a goal to nurture budding and already existing styling careers to create a movement of skilled style professionals, from Africa to the world.

School of Styling will run periodically taking on a limited number of students to ensure effective tutoring and hands-on practical training in an elaborate styling curriculum.
