The School’s Adelaide Roadshow arrives

Sydney’s Megan Morton is a stylist with a global portfolio and a local reputation for sharing her vast expertise openly with others. Tomorrow she arrives in Adelaide to share with us.

Megan’s name is met with delight and respect from those that know her. With work that has appeared in titles such as Vanity Fair and Vogue Living, she is renowned not just for her skill but also her ability to charm almost everyone she meets.


The School is in Adelaide from September 26 – 29
Sessions are located at the Jam Factory and The Props Department

Years of hard work saw her rise to the top of the industry, but even as her styling skills became more in-demand, she found herself influenced by her three-teacher family, longing to share  with others. So, back on the East Coast Megan created The School – an ever-evolving project that sees some of the nation’s best craftspeople offer classes to the rest of us.

“I love showing people our rationales and strategies,” says Megan. “The creative world is one that exists on end outcomes and ideas and we all know that this is wonderful, but there needs to be a general guide as to how to go about it.”

Tomorrow will be the second time Megan has brought an outpost of The School to Adelaide. This time around, the roadshow brings three limited-place workshops – one with Megan herself entitled “The Science of Styling”, another with Conde Nast veteran Robyn Holt to help give your small business a makeover and the last with Stephanie Somebody on the art of Instagram.

All of these topics could be characterised as pursuits which need a certain amount of intuition and instinct, but Megan says there are still some important skills that can be learned.

“Instinct and magic is an element in my Science of Styling Masterclass class but so is Core Values, Procedures and Skill sets,” she says.

This return to Adelaide may signal more frequent visits in the future for The School. Megan and her fellow teachers’ services are in-demand internationally, but she is keen to develop the Australian footprint before thinking about spreading the knowledge overseas.

“We fall in love the spirit of the people and then can’t help but want to come back,” she says of Adelaide. “We are lucky that our school had so much interest both in our own country and overseas. But the truth is we want to have spoken to as many people as we can in our own country before we go international.”
