Welcome to Educated Style!

Educated Style helps others discover alignment between their values, personality, and style, with courses, content, and events in areas like:

After becoming a Sseko Fellow in 2017, Kara Hoholik recognized that there were gaps between what issues people cared about and their ability to take action. In other words, people wanted to make a difference but didn’t know where to start. And so that’s why she created Educated Style and the Conscious Closet MiniCourse; to provide the support and framework needed to build an ethical wardrobe.

Educated Style offers women tangible results that create an impact worldwide and at home through a simple, values-based process of conscious closet organization. Because we recognize that is what you need to live a more intentional life, and we are here to serve you!

We also know that you need education and resources to understand the changing dynamics of this space. So through our work, we also combat myths surrounding the fast fashion industry. We actively support fair employment and access to education, while also advocating for sustainable and eco-friendly practices in closets and homes. Moreover, all of this is viewed through social justice and anti-racist lens. We believe that a true rising tide will lift all ships.


Sseko Designs is a socially conscious fashion brand that employs women around the world to create beautiful and quality products. Through our scholarship program, we are creating an opportunity for women to attend university and become leaders in their community. To emulate the support and family atmosphere in the Ugandan workshop, Sseko also created the Fellows program here in the United States. This program then became a social enterprise and community where we, as American women, could thrive as our authentic selves and create a bigger impact.
