A breathtaking program to create the Fashion Stylist. This is a master of the image, who’s able to dictate visuals through understanding the language of today’s aesthetic paradigms and shape the collective imaginary of tomorrow. This is an icon-maker, who works closely with designers, video-makers, photographers and artists.
Fashion Styling offers five in-depth modules: Styling a Collection, Still-life Styling, Digital Styling, Editorial Styling and Personal Styling. Each module is composed of dedicated classes and finishes with a project ready to present as a personal portfolio, thereby providing each student with a practical set of skills for the fashion industry.
This intensive specialisation includes classes with resident teachers from the industry, international guest lecturers, a field trip to Paris or London, workshops, attendance to Milan/Florence fashion weeks, internship opportunities, as well as the Venice Biennale and the regular use of a professional photography studio.
Lessons take place from April to December and amount to a total of 700 contact hours. There is the possibility of completing the course with an internship in a fashion company, leading to the overall obtainment of 80 credits. English language proficiency and attendance are required. Candidates with work experience or relevant studies in fashion and related fields will be selected after a enrolment questionnaire and an interview with the course’s leading teacher.
Upon completion of the Master students will be automatically given the possibility to partake in the Polimoda Talent program.
