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

"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" Jane Michael Ekanem shares about launching the school of styling.

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.
