Celebrity Stylist & Designer Jane Michael Ekanem Begins School of Styling Lagos With Its Maiden Season

Jane & Student Stylists


Celebrity stylist and designer Jane Michael Ekanem officially begins the School of Styling Lagos to provide styling education for budding stylists.

Starting off last weekend at the Jane Michael Studio in Lagos, the fashion entrepreneur tutored students in Basics of Styling, Ethics of Styling, Skill of Improvisation, Business of Styling, and a Practical Session as part of an Intensive Fashion Styling Certification Course to kick off the school’s maiden season of styling classes.

The practical session of the Intensive Fashion Styling Course involved a 3-step project that culminated in the students styling celebrities Bolanle Olukanni, Aderonke Adefalujo (Rhonke Fella) and Okiemute Ighorodje as their respective muses.

According to Jane Michael ‘’For the longest time during my earlier years as a stylist, I had always wished there would have been some form of training I could have benefited from. As my skill and appreciation for my craft grew, it became paramount that I create a center of learning that can properly guide young styling creatives to achieving their dream of starting fashion conversations through proper selection and arrangement of fashion pieces. It is our hope that by employing industry experience through professional educators in guiding a stylist’s dream, we can foster every student’s distinctive style nature, educating them on how to challenge set patterns and define the future of fashion styling’

The profile of the School of Styling Lagos aptly describes it as the fashion school for style visionaries. A truly modern styling institute that tailors learning in accordance with the interests and needs of each student who is enthusiastic about fashion styling. Through innovative practical approach across all channels of learning, the School of Styling operates with a goal to nurture budding and already existing styling careers to create a movement of skilled style professionals, from Africa to the world.

School of Styling will run seasonally taking on a limited number of students to ensure effective tutoring and hands-on practical training in an elaborate styling curriculum.
