Welcome from our Founders
We believe everyone has the potential for greatness. Our commitment is to make that shine brightly. Success doesn’t always come easy to talented creatives however, because it often relies on the language of business, networking, negotiation, and money talk which many are uncomfortable with. We recognised the challenge and we’ve solved the problem.

DIRECTOR, FASHION & STYLE EXPERT, LIFESTYLE TV PRESENTER
As a Director of the London College of Style, I am passionate in my belief that delivering a learning experience that is ‘personalised’ to each of our students is the future in innovative creative education and training. This is the training method that runs through the heart of LCS and is a powerful alternative to traditional education. A proven game-changer in individual personal development and potential for career success. At LCS, we recognise that each student is different and we all care that they are supported to achieve. Our training method builds self-belief and unleashes the opportunity for brilliant levels of talent to shine.
I have been tremendously fortunate to work in the glorious fashion, beauty and creative industries all my working life and to this day I never feel like my career has been a job! From humble roots, dogged devotion to become great and to never take no as an answer has seen me rise as a top personal and celebrity stylist, art director and mainstream TV presenter. Meeting and working with extraordinary people and travelling all over the world, I would never have imagined this would be my career, but it is and I can’t wait to help our students achieve their own success!
