The School NZ - Megan MortonMegan Morton - The School NZ. Photo: Maya VidulichFor many of you this will be the first time you have been introduced to” The School ” – a passion project by internationally renowned interior stylist; Megan Morton. Megan has cultivated a dream team of extremely talented creatives to join her travelling roadshow and share their skills and inside knowledge over a plethora of exciting topics!  The School has gained cult status with its programme in Australia and guess what……they are coming to Auckland, NZ from November the 1st – 4th !!!

The team will be setting up at the new Mildred & Co. showroom and offering 7 awesome classes:
Vignettes with Kara Rosenlund
Science of Styling with Megan Morton
Photoshop for Bloggers + Beginners with Simone Madigan
Instagram Debunked with Stephanie Somebody
Photography 101 with Brooke Holm
Kids Room Decorating with Megan Morton
French 101 with Sophie The

Over the next month I will be sharing an exclusive series of short interviews with each of the creatives above so that you can get to know their story a little better and maybe recognise a teacher that could help you build your own creative skills. The School brings a range of classes that are niche and unlikely to be offered elsewhere at this level. It may be that you have a personal interest in styling and photography or you are a creative yourself –  wanting to present your own business and products on a new improved level. Well these are the women who can teach you how !!

To me the initials “MM” are synonomous not only with wonderful interiors spied in books and magazine editorials (and beautifully produced shots of people, things and places!) but also with a woman who is inspiring in her creative drive and diversity. Not content with just fulfilling the requirements of her very successful career as a commercial stylist she has also produced three books and brought to life her own format to share her skills andr those of her colleagues with a like minded audience. Oh – and she’s a mum!!

-What is your day job? My day job is a stylist. The School is my passion project and really connects makers to people – just like I do in magazines with my set ups and styled shots, but this way we go direct!

-What led you to do what you do? What are your favourite aspects of your chosen work? I really like people and am generally curious about them. What I love is watching a left brainer person take a right brain class and totally blitz it and get what we call “the fever!”

-Tell us about your class you teach at The School? Its hard to put into words. But after it people come up to me and say “Oh my god, if you told me you were going to do all of that I would have paid double!” which is always nice! I could charge more but I want as many people as interested in understanding beauty around them to be able to get to it. In saying that, the Masterclass series are not cheap but it has now launched many businesses and careers.

-Who would it interest and why should I tell my friends to go? Not many stylists with international tear sheets and covers are prepared to share all they know about one of the most wonderful magic making industries known to man kind is why.

– To be purely nosey….can you share your top go-to spots online that you rove for inspiration? I really do try not to. Not because I am anti blog or site inspiration, but most of it is re-hashed and I only really like original content. I dont use them as much as I used to as I am in head deep down into an instagram addiction!

Follow Megan on instagram here and here and on Facebook.
