"The best online class I have ever taken! Taught me everything I wish my school would have taught me about the fashion industry."

"I learned more about parts of the fashion industry that are not taught in my [school's] curriculum."

"The class has given me a glimpse into the industry on every aspect!"

"The Fashion Career Accelerator was an amazing way to stay inspired during an otherwise uninspiring time. I gained deeper understanding of styling as a potential career path as well as being opened up to other future possibilities."

• "I would not have had the courage to do the informational interviews or even know where to start had it not been for this program. I also would have never known how interested I am in the editorial side of the industry, something I had never considered before this program."

"Fashion Career Accelerator was the best decision I made throughout quarantine. I learned so much about the industry -- different career paths, how to network efficiently, how styling works and more. I would recommend this to ANYONE interested in fashion or styling."

"I felt like it was a great stepping stone for me to see if this is an area that I could potentially go into."

Born and raised in the midwest, Andrew Gelwicks is a celebrity fashion stylist, writer, and speaker.

He worked at GQ and Teen Vogue before beginning his own venture as a celebrity fashion stylist. Andrew's portfolio includes rising and seasoned stars including Catherine O’Hara, Michael Douglas, Tommy Dorfman, KJ Apa, Barbie Ferreira, Tove Lo, Lisa Rinna, Delilah Belle Hamlin, Jo Ellen Pellman, Nicole Scherzinger, Luna Blaise, and the Queer Eye cast, among many others.

His debut book, The Queer Advantage, is a compilation of interviews with the world's most successful leaders — from Billie Jean King to Lee Daniels to Barney Frank to Margaret Cho — on how their queer identities have positively impacted their careers and lives. Published by Hachette, it was named one of the "most anticipated books of fall 2020" by TIME.

He has been profiled in Forbes, The Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles Times, People, Harper’s Bazaar, and WWD, among others, and was featured on the OUT100 in 2020.

This is personal.

I've been where you are. Each summer I was in college, I desperately looked forward to coming to New York City and interning. Those months not only defined my future career path, but also equipped me with much-needed practical and professional skills.

In my internship at Hearst magazines, I learned about public relations through working on my favorite brands: Cosmopolitan, ELLE, Harper’s BAZAAR, Marie Claire, and Seventeen.

At Michael Kors, I worked behind the scenes at fashion shows and helped cast top models.

With Starworks Group, I discovered the ins and outs of celebrity dressing, and how celebrities get their hands on the most beautiful clothes.

In my spare time, I was on-set with stylists, assisting them on shoots for Interview and Vogue, and doing informational interviews with people whom I was desperate to learn from.

I came to life in these experiences and realized a career in fashion was not something I just wanted, but was something I knew I could achieve.

As someone who benefited so much these experiences, I am devastated by the canceled internship programs this summer due to COVID-19.

I want to offer the next-best thing to an in-person internship for those who are just as eager as I was to get my foot in the door.
