Learn how to communicate fashion with visuals and words, developing new ideas and inspirations to make a product more appealing. Discover what it takes to make a successful creative project: you will learn how to design photo shoots, videos, fashion films, events, fashion shows and publishing materials.  

The Fashion Stylist and Editor programme at IED Roma will give you the opportunity to learn how to enhance the brand value of fashion products. And starting from your second year, you will be able to choose your preferred specialization track: Fashion Stylist or Fashion Editor.

The Fashion Stylist specialization track will give you the opportunity to connect with Creative Directors, Photographers and Fashion Designers, working with them on the main tasks involved in the collection creation process. On the other hand, the Fashion Editor specialization track will focus on such areas as fashion publishing, TV and media broadcasting, where you can provide original fashion coverage and be involved in cool hunting and trend-setting activities.

Over the six semesters of study, you will learn to approach, manage and build your project design skills. These will be useful when developing projects in cooperation with companies from the industry, but also as part of your process of creation, communication and promotion of fashion brands and products.

The aim of the programme is to train professionals in the fashion industry with strong communication skills, critical thinking, awareness and creative intelligence. 

Starting in your second year, you will be focusing on practical projects, which will give you an even better understanding of what you can do. It will be the time for you to choose your specialization track: Fashion Stylist if you want to become a professional in brand design and communication who works with visuals; Fashion Editor if you want to work in brand publishing and communication.

The three-year Fashion Stylist and Editor degree programme at IED Roma is your best option if you want to learn about the world of fashion, create innovation with visual and publishing communication, while also shaping the style trends of the future.

The curriculum will enhance your skills, whatever your educational and cultural background, and will allow you to build and shape your creative identity, as well as visual skills and strong business acumen.

The Fashion Stylist and Editor degree programme at IED Roma will encourage you to get personally involved all along your learning process. You will be able to bring out your inner self, and that will be the source of your personal creative process.

Workshops, seminars and special projects will contribute to your personal and professional training. Likewise, events and conferences with professionals from the industry -committed to further enhancing your skills- will allow you to experience new areas of knowledge, both nationally and internationally.

Your training programme will be supported by a variety of projects developed in cooperation with medium to large sized companies and international brands. This will be a very important opportunity to test your skills and teamwork on the field. This is also a great way for you to get involved and understand what you can do.

Upon completion of your studies, you will be able to work as a Brand Consultant, Creative Direction Coordinator, Fashion Editor, Fashion Social Media Manager, Fashion Stylist, Fashion and Vintage Research Expert, Fashion Web Editor, Press Office and Digital PR, Trend Forecaster and Visual Merchandiser.
