Today we’re interviewing a recent London College of Style Fashion & Personal Styling Diploma graduate, Emily-Beth Brannan. In the past 12 weeks Emily has gone on an exciting journey with LCS, learning everything there is to know about personal and editorial styling, working on her own projects and finding her inner voice as a stylist. Let’s dive in!
Tell us a little about yourself!
I’m 25 and have a degree in Events Management from Leeds Beckett University. Before LCS I was an events coordinator for beauty brands.
What inspired you to want to become a stylist?
I’ve always loved fashion and clothing, I’d got to a point in my events career where I wasn’t feeling fulfilled so I decided to explore my love of fashion and enrol on the course.
What styling experience did you have before starting your course with LCS?
I had completed an internship for celebrity stylist Angie Smith during summer 2018.
How did you find out about LCS?
From following stylist on Instagram I found out that many of them were trained by LCS.
What has been your proudest moment as an up-and-and coming stylist so far?
Styling a Little Mix performance for Michael McIntyre’s Big Show.
Which area of styling are you most passionate about?
Personal styling is my passion along with celebrity styling, however I have loved editorial shoots.
What task during your time at LCS did you find the most challenging?
I think the most challenging was the first editorial shoot as I didn’t know what to expect and wanted to try and do something different.
Where do you see yourself in 2-3 years time?
Hopefully working as a freelance personal and celebrity stylist.
What advice would you give to the next term students at LCS?
Try to do as many opportunities as you can during the Course as they’re amazing for networking and your self-confidence!
