Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take the full course online?

Absolutely! While we offer a hybrid model (alternating with one week in-person and one week online), many of our students from around the country have completed the course fully online. They found the online course inclusive and engaging, thanks to the use of breakout rooms and other social features.

What night is the course on?

Our classes are held every Tuesday from 6-8 pm. Typically, there is about 1 hour of additional work to be completed in your own time between classes.

What if I miss one of the evenings?

If you miss a class, you will receive a full recording and notes, allowing you to catch up at your convenience.

Do you offer a menswear styling course?

Currently, our courses cover both womenswear and menswear. However, we will be launching a menswear-specific course later this year—stay tuned for updates!

How does your payment plan work?

To secure your place, you pay a deposit of €200. The remaining amount is divided into two payments spread over two months. To arrange a payment plan, you can either purchase the deposit amount and we will get in touch, or you can email us at hello@irishstyleinstitute.ie to organise it.

Can I expense for work?

If you are self-employed and have been working in this industry for 5 years, you can backdate the course as an expense. If your employer is covering it as part of further training or a professional program, it can also be expensed. Additionally, the course might be eligible under a wellness or well-being scheme.

Do I need to have previous experience to attend ?

No prior fashion experience is required. The only prerequisite is that you have a Junior Certificate or its equivalent.

Where do your in person classes happen?

Our in-person classes are held at the stylish Iconic Office, The Lennox Building, located at 51 South Richmond Street, Dublin, D02 FK02.

I'm not sure which course I want to choose, can I talk to someone about it?

Absolutely! You can contact us at hello@irishstyleinstitute.com. We also host virtual open evenings, so keep an eye on our social media for those events.

What areas can I specialise in after qualifiying?

After qualifying, you can specialise in various areas of the fashion industry, such as starting your own personal shopping or image consultancy business, or working as an in-house stylist for an e-commerce brand. There are numerous opportunities to upskill and advance your fashion career. For more information, please email us at hello@irishstyleinstitute.com.

Is this course recognised outside of Ireland?

Yes, all of our courses are at Diploma level and are independently accredited by the CPD Standards Office UK, one of the most widely recognised accreditation bodies in Ireland and the UK.

Which course should I do?

If you wish to work one-on-one with clients, Image Consultancy and Personal Shopping is the course for you. If you wish to work in the broader fashion industry, incorporating shoots, ad campaigns, and media work, Fashion Styling is your best choice. Fashion PR and Luxury Goods Marketing are course modules in this option as well.
