The Fashion Institute was founded by Sarah Stavrow in 2011. After working as a Fashion Publicist for many years, with high profile clients such as Bonds, Seafolly & General Pants. Sarah’s intention was to give young people looking to break into the industry the necessary and relevant skills to succeed.


Fast forward to today and we have had over 800 students pass through our doors, graduating on to successful and fulfilling careers in the industry. 


We are at the forefront of providing current and relevant education, taught by industry leaders in a dynamic and engaging environment; paired with exclusive workplace training opportunities, unlimited industry experience, international exposure and guest speakers sessions and masterclasses with some of the industry's top professionals.


2022 saw us begin our partnership with Macleay College Pty Ltd to extend our education offering into the higher education space with fully FEE-HELP approved undergraduate courses.

As the industry constantly evolves, so to do we, and we are so excited for you to be part of our journey and for us to be part of your journey; helping pave the way for your career in the fashion industry.
