Elle – Shop Girl to Stylist!

You’d be surpised at how many wan-a-be stylists refused to work as a shop assistant. The experiences you gain from working in a shop can be invaluable.

Anyone in the UK who is currently working as a sales assistant, might want to enter this competition. On the 5th March ELLE is launching a six-month nationwide search to find a shop assistant with a great talent for styling. 

ELLE editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy said: “This is a unique and exciting project which heroes the men and women who literally style the nation. They deserve more credit for what they do and we’ll give them that in the pages of ELLE.”

    I am sooo sad i do not have the experience to apply for this competition, i have been trying to break into retail for the past 2/3 years and i have worked EVERYWHERE else apart from retail. I just finished a short course on fashion styling and im currently trying to get experience. The world of a stylist is AMAZING.
