It has been close to 6 years now since graduating from the Australian College of Professional Styling and approximately 3 years since I updated my testimonial! In that time the skill sets and confidence I acquired continue to enable me to create new and exciting opportunities for my business, Jenni Sellan – which has now become a full time venture.
My written work remains an important extension of the voice behind my business and brand and I am fortunate enough to be a regular contributor for All My Friends Are Models, a website ultimately about humanising beauty; an aspect of the fashion industry that I fiercely support.
My day-to-day now includes campaign and editorial styling, conducting workshops, designing uniform concepts for large corporations and most recently, taking on the role of Stylist & Trainer for Creative Skills Shop, a very exciting new concept for aspiring & recently graduated creatives in the fashion industry.
What has changed in the last 3 years is the growth and expansion of my business, which is a testament to the College as their support to me in the very early stages of my career was second to none; from calling out areas of strength and encouraging pursuit in those areas, to the personalised and detailed feedback received from my tutor throughout the duration of the course.
What has not changed is the diversity that my career in fashion continues to deliver.
As I wrote in my original testimonial, “by nature I have always been a dreamer”. Fashion is my playground, and to legitimately call it ‘work’ is a dream realised.
