The second seminar will feature top British hairstylist Andrew Collinge, celebrity make-up artist Cassie Lomas and stylist to the stars Lorraine McCulloch explaining how they turned their passion for fashion into a career, and now style a-list celebrities.
The third and final seminar will see Rosanna Falconer, communications director at Matthew Williamson, Stephen Shaw, marketing opportunities director at Blippar and fashion photographer Tim Bret Day debating the changing face of fashion, and how digital technology has changed marketing and brand building across the industry.
Denise Harris, Director of Celebration of Style, said,
The Influence of Style exhibition, which forms part of the three day Celebration of Style event, has been designed to inspire, motivate and mentor future talent. It will appeal to anyone with an interest in style, as well as those looking to break into the industry.
The world of fashion is notoriously competitive and it can be very difficult for even the most talented to get their first rung on the ladder. Influence of Style will provide a rare opportunity to learn from an interesting panel of experts, who have all managed to reach the top of their game.
