Course Overview

'Styling' is the very soul of fashion. It is the creation of an image, a visual, and a way of expression. This course entails a holistic understanding of the role of a stylist in the fashion industry. The structure is designed to assist the student in studying style trends, designer collections and style tribes. Students enrolling for this course will get a first-hand experience along with an insight into the industry functionalities.

Our modules detail and outline the difference between styling for photography and films, for conceptual shoots and commercial shoots, for e-commerce portals and designer look books, etc.

We also equip our students with the history of styling itself. This subject is essential, and having an understanding of the influence of history and art on the fashion of a particular era is key to having a rock-solid foundation in this field. You never know when you may have to style for a period film or make the characters convincingly portray a specific time in history! Therefore, you can see how being in a field like this can have a massive potential. From working with photographers to art directors, costume makers and hair and makeup artists, this line involves a lot of creativity and passion.

The subjects give the students a deep understanding of colours, skin tones, fabrics, silhouettes, textures, body types, personality styles, what happens behind the scenes of a shoot or a campaign, styling for e-commerce brands and advertisement. By the end of this course, and after working on various individual and group assignments, the students will have a rock-solid foundation in fashion styling, and enough exposure to its different components. Students will also more specifically be able to opt for which area of styling appeals to them enough for the student to pursue as a career or specialisation.

Student can also expect to gather insider knowledge of the professional life cycle of a stylist, how a fashion editorial works, how fashion shows are designed and how commercial work is organised. Students will also be trained in team management and art direction.

The curriculum includes the creation of a "Styled" image. It involves a test shoot, how to create a fashion image with a given theme and learning the varied roles of a stylist.
