The Fashion Styling and Communication Masters degree forms professionals that will be capable to come up new fashion visual proposals (styling, creative direction, fashion film….) as well as developing contemporary communication, branding and marketing strategies for existing fashion companies.
It is a theoretical and practical training that brings the student closer to the realities of the professional market through a series of collaborations with different fashion brands (luxury & high street, showrooms, vintage, agencies, etc), where they will acquire the necessary skills to tackle the new challenges in the fashion sector.
With its mixed format, this degree will allow all students to learn, participate and be part of the IED community in person, in physical and virtual classrooms, and remotely.
The Master in Fashion Styling and Communication aims to form professionals that have a clear individual creative voice but that are team players too. You will learn to produce images that address contemporary issues and narratives across different content formats: editorial, moving image, communication campaigns, etc.
We aim for results to industry standards. For us, industry standards not only relate to high quality projects, but also means to work towards an on-going critical practice in which we learn to always question our work in order to guarantee values of diversity and responsibility.
Our students specialise in styling, creative direction, content production and communication, developing a basic proficiency in both photography and film.
