Former student now celebrity stylist Ryan Kay inspires fashion innovation students in an exciting guest lecture
Ryan enrolled at the college back in 2007, studying acting & musical theatre which he says helped him to build his confidence and prepared him for working in the vibrant and fast-paced celebrity fashion industry. Thinking back to his time at college, Ryan fondly remembers the productions he performed in as his favourite element of his college experience. It was these showcases that ignited his ambition to become a stylist, with his understanding of the stage becoming instrumental in his precise fashion compositions which now grace TV screens and Instagram feeds across the nation.
After college, Ryan moved to London to study at the London College of Fashion, placing himself at the epicentre of the British fashion scene. Having worked in PR for major fashion icons, as well as spending time as a fashion consultant and stylist, Ryan decided to start his own business as a celebrity stylist, having impressed “Sax” singer and X Factor contestant Fleur East with his chic styles and eye for the latest trends. This started his stellar career styling the likes of Olivia Attwood, Gemma Owens and Lucy Fallon.
