First week at Paris College of Art:
In the last three decades, the fashion stylist’s status and role in the fashion industry has been increasingly crucial. As a key player in the fashion system, the fashion stylist’s work goes from the pre-conception phase of a designer’s collection all the way to editorial shoots and visual merchandising in the stores.
Through theoretical lectures and practical projects (individual and group), this course will immerse the student in the creative process, skills and function of styling and fashion communication.
Second week at IED Firenze:
During the second week of this program, students will understand and learn to apply the entire process of fashion styling using new media and video making strategies. By experimenting and interacting with other artistic disciplines and developing their own creativity, students will learn to work autonomously. The course constitutes a further development on the tools and processes of design thinking attitude.
Students will acquire a range of skills through theoretical and live project-based case studies, working both individually and in groups. They will directly interact with fashion and lifestyle brands which will allow them to explore a range of roles and career opportunities.
