I’ve been working with LCS students for the past 2 years, they are an invaluable help to me, extremely reliable and the students do a really great job. Trained to a highly professional standard. Thank you LCS!

We have had the pleasure of taking on students from LCS for the past few seasons and hopefully many more, supporting us backstage as well as front of house for Fashion Scout Shows. The students were amazing and great to work with, receiving fantastic feedback from our team as well as all our designers.

LCS are my go-to for Styling Assistants. The students are brilliant – reliable, professional, skilled and passionate about a career in the industry. I have happily gone on to take several graduates as first assistants to many editorial and commercial shoots. Highly recommended.
