Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fashion Styling

Presenting contemporary and future trends, enhancing the collections of designers, informing and inspiring their readers: this is the exciting mission of the fashion stylist. By the end of the fashion stylist program, students will gain the ability to recognize different styles and trends, clearly define their personal vision of a product, and propose innovative and professional ideas successfully.

By understanding the role and responsibilities of the professional stylist, students learn how to pull together, organize and lead a team of experts to ensure the direction of what goes in the fashion magazines, appears online, or on the catwalk, communicates the right messages, at the right time, and to the right target audience.

From a solid base in styling, this course moves on to explore multiple areas of the fashion industry where management of the creative process is core practice. Students are encouraged to develop their own ideas and experiment in producing a different variety of visual outcomes, such as fashion editorials, viral videos, brand image and restyling proposals, interactive and print advertising campaigns, and social media visual contents. The course covers key skills in fashion copywriting, PR and media planning, fashion production management, business planning, time management, and advertising deadlines and budgets. Cultural studies in the history of design, dress and fashion culture provide the necessary skills to make a critical assessment of a brand or client’s lifestyle and legacy.

Students are encouraged to study fashion styling to decode stereotypes and to think about image positioning from a different perspective in order to discover their own unique personal style. The ultimate goal is the independent creation of a professional styling portfolio that fully expresses the personality and skills of the student.

Our Fashion Styling Bachelor Degree program forms future professionals and ‘creatives’ with the ability to work within the fashion system in areas of visual communication such as publishing, advertising, visual merchandising, trend or style forecasting, and blogging.

A fashion stylist is an expert in fashion communication and must be able to define and produce a winning combination of component parts in order to create an image or ‘look’ to emphasize the style of a brand, a magazine or a person.

This can be achieved through the careful use of clothes, accessories, hair and make-up, through atmosphere and location, and through the knowledge and analysis of contemporary and future trends. The skills lie in interpreting the soul of an article of clothing, or product, and communicating it through a unique style.
