NYIAD Partners with Arthur on Business Management Tool for Stylists

The New York Institute of Art and Design has partnered with Arthur, an online platform that helps personal stylists manage and grow their businesses. Arthur helps aspiring personal stylists successfully develop a modern, user-friendly and organized online workspace. From building digital look books and working with remote clients to earning commissions on product sales, Arthur has developed a streamlined, easy-to-use online platform where designers can do it all in one place.

Through this exciting new partnership, New York Institute of Art and Design students will be able to use Arthur’s online business management tools for free. Not only that, they’ll also receive a dedicated marketing page where they can upload and share their work with potential clients and fans.

“Arthur helps freelance personal shoppers and stylists build their businesses by providing them with the right tools and tech to manage their day-to-day operations,” says co-founder Leigh Sevin. “It’s the easiest way to replicate what stylists do in person, allowing them to stop letting geography get in the way of where or who they style.”

Every student of The New York Institute of Art and Design’s online Personal Style Course is given a comprehensive overview of business and marketing so that they learn how to run a successful style business. And thanks to this exciting new partnership, they’ll now have a convenient, online tool where they can bring those lessons to life.

“Part of our mission here at NYIAD has always been to ensure students graduate with the confidence and skills necessary to start a successful business,” says Jacob Boller, School Director. “Thanks to this new partnership with Arthur, our Personal Style students will be given yet another resource they can use in establishing functional, organized and profitable businesses of their own.”
