Affair: International Style Institute with Anita Patrickson

When: Friday, October 2 - Sunday, October 4, 2015

Hot Spot: The Grove, Los Angeles, CA

Deets: You pronounce Givenchy perfectly even though you never took French. You follow more fashion designers on Instagram than actual acquaintances. You pored over pages of Vogue editorials before you were old enough to read. Your friends always come to you first for outfit advice (and to raid your closet). You know exactly which designers your favorite celebrities are wearing to each award show, because you saw them being marched down the runways last season. You live, breathe, and consume fashion—and you were born to be a stylist.

Here’s the deal. Styling is one of those professions that sounds nice in theory, but doesn’t exactly come with a handbook—until now. World renowned celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson and Simply Stylist have teamed up with The Grove and The International Style Institute to present a three day intensive Styling course for anyone who dreams of dressing people up for a living. We know—totally worth pausing your #ootd scrolling for, right? Anita is one of the top stylists in the industry, dressing everyone from Emma Watson to Julianne Hough, as well as regularly styling the covers of a number of magazines including Elle, InStyle and Glamour. She—along with other top experts in the fashion field—will show you the ropes on everything from how to handle samples to styling an editorial shoot. And with a max attendance size of 50, you know you’re going to get quality time and attention. 

Simply Stylist, founded by fashion industry veteran, Sarah Boyd, is the go-to source for getting connected to like-minded individuals. They host nationwide conferences and have connections with the industry's top bloggers, celebrities, stylists, editors and more. They've teamed up with The International Style Institute and Anita Patrickson to assist in making attendees' dreams a reality.

Two attendees will actually be selected to assist Anita for a shoot after the event—a (well-soled) foot in the door, to say the least. Plus, every attendee will leave with a Stylist Starter Kit gift bag, a binder filled with contacts and notes to kickstart their career, network time with top names in the industry, one year of DripBook, and one professional photo styled by themselves to kick off their styling career.
