"I attended The Business of Wardrobe Styling just as I was about to launch my wardrobe styling & image consulting business. I am SO glad I signed up as Janis & team gave excellent insights into the world of styling beyond what my business focus was. Having the opportunity to hear from local experts brought everything we were learning to life. We had the opportunity to style a model for a photo shoot... Wow. So beneficial to have hands on experience & see first hand what goes on behind the scenes at a photo shoot."
- Shelby Varughese
Shelby has since launched All Set Style, a personal styling service.
"The Workshop has been incredibly helpful in my day-to-day as a brand photographer. I now have a better eye for ensuring garments are on and sitting properly during shoots, the ability and knowledge of how to source looks for styled shoots, and more confidence when styling clients and even myself before stepping in front of the camera. The Business of Wardrobe Styling has truly expanded my skillset and helped set me apart as a photographer– although be warned you’ll never be able to unsee wrinkles, creases and styling faux paus in ad campaigns again!" - Marielle Elizabeth, Social Media Consultant & Photographer
“The Business of Wardrobe styling was a fantastic platform to network with other creatives within the industry. The workshop confirmed a lot of what I was doing and gave me confidence in how to set my price. It was great to listen to a speaker panel about etiquette on set and what professionals look for in a stylist. Since then, I have collaborated with other attendees from the workshop and worked some of the biggest fashion events in Edmonton!” - Alyssa Habchi
