NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2014) - Personal styling and fashion consulting agency, STYLE 2020, recently announced the launch of their boutique STYLE & fashion training platform. STYLE 2020 Academy is for individuals aspiring to boost their expertise in wardrobe and personal styling. The STYLE 2020 Academy facilitators range from a former Chanel executive, to one of America's "Best Dressed," according to Esquire Magazine.

"For the past 5 years STYLE 2020 has been approached many times to introduce a program that would help STYLE lovers increase their individual expertise," said Kathryn Moore, CEO and Founder of STYLE 2020 and STYLE 2020 Academy. "This type of mentoring and knowledge-based approach does not exist, nor is it conducive to a traditional academic setting. Fashion Styling is a very creative process and demands a passion driven approach, combined with real knowledge and expertise."

STYLE 2020 Academy offers a very personal, yet industrialized approach to the traditional classroom by providing a collaborative atmosphere and regarding each individual as a client of the agency. Significant time is spent between each participant and facilitators, to assess the individual's experience level and personal achievement goals. Sessions offered range from client wardrobe analysis, elements of design, fabrication, body typing, and business development.

Upon graduation, each STYLE 2020 Academy "Stylist" will receive a certification of completion. Whether the individual is just entering the fashion industry, is an experienced professional stylist seeking further education, or is a fashion enthusiast that wants to up their STYLE game, STYLE 2020 Academy takes the time to evaluate the needs of each client and ensures they are prepared to successfully meet the challenges that lie ahead.

Registration for fall and spring sessions at STYLE 2020 Academy begins now. To register or find out more, call 949-723-3400 or visit online.
