Hong Kong – January 31, 2013- As Hongkongers remain on the forefront of luxury goods consumption, men and women of the growing affluent class from their 20s to 50s are seeking further education on how to express their own personal style when wearing luxury brand items. Hongkongers and mainlanders are therefore enlisting in the Sterling Style Academy 3 or 5 Day Short Courses in Image Consulting, Personal Styling and Personal Shopping in Hong Kong and Shanghai as their educational resource for luxury brand dressing.
The Sterling Style Academy’s 3-Day Short Course tends to attract students in their 20s from Hong Kong University who are either trend tracers or would like to pursue a career in fashion as an image consultant and personal shopper. Many of the course attendees have either grown up purchasing luxury brand items or have developed a taste for luxury in their adult years. Whichever the situation may be they see the opportunity to turn their love of luxury brand shopping into assisting others in making luxury brand purchase decisions and therefore want to pursue a career in this growing industry.
Individuals in their 30s, 40s and 50s, however, choose to enlist in the Sterling Style Academy 3 or 5-Day Personal Styling and Personal Shopping Short Course in order to better understand how to project a personal and or professional image of power, polish, and prestige through the clothing they wear. Those only interested in learning how to enhance their personal style choose to enlist in the 3-Day Short Course while those who are interested in pursuing a career in this industry or are stay-at-home wives or mothers enlist in the 5-Day Image Consultant and Personal Shopper Short Course.
During the Sterling Style Academy 3-Day Personal Styling and Personal Shopping Short Course, attendees will learn about colour analysis and fashion style evaluation and implementation, which are where the foundations for careers in fashion styling and image consulting begin. The third day is focused on how to properly execute personal shopping consultations for you, prospective clients, friends and family. Those who decide to take the 5-Day Personal Styling and Personal Shopping Short Course will have one additional day focused on body shape analysis and the other day on marketing and business development.
The all-day training session begins at 10am and concludes at 4:30pm and the tuition investment for new students for the 3-Day Color and Fashion Style Short Couse is US$2,747 or US$5,497 for the 5-Day Personal Stylist and Personal Shopper Short Course. Registration closes on February 22, therefore act quickly to learn from leaders in the image consulting industry as training sessions in China are only conducted in April. If however, you are unable to attend the courses in April, the Sterling Style Academy also conducts these programs in New York in May and in London in July.
Furthermore, online luxury brand retailer, NET-A-PORTER.COM, has approached the Sterling Style Academy due to their excellent reputation in educating students in luxury brand dressing. Net-A-Porter’s Asia Pacific business with offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai are fast expanding and they are seeking qualified candidates to be part of their team expansion.
Charlene Choo, Recruiter APAC at the NET-A-PORTER GROUP based out of Hong Kong who has purchased our Personal Shopping eShort Course, states, “I am aware of Sterling Style Academy platform, the training and the students that graduated from this academy are great! I knew the Sterling Style Academy trains up students in the personal shopping industry. We are keen to speak to them if they are keen to join our company and this is definitely exciting.”
