Polimoda and Central Saint Martins – University of The Arts London – Short Courses have partnered for the Dual City Summer Courses project. This collaboration offers a range of short courses that combine education with the excitement of visiting two capital cities of Fashion, and two of the top international centres of fashion studies. Polimoda and Central Saint Martins Short Courses propose a one-month summer course for 2017, Fashion Trend Forecasting and Styling, where the first half of the course takes place in London and then moves over to Florence.
A professional stylist’s role goes far beyond the simple decision of an outfit. These professionals source garments, book models, plan looks and narratives, adapt to their audience and the media to produce the final images. This course takes you through the skills required to become a stylist and gives you an opportunity to work on your own shoot, so you come away with images to make your portfolio stand out from the crowd. In London the emphasis is on styling, whilst in Florence you’ll learn about the importance of trend forecasting a stylist’s work.
