Overview

Fashion Styling is a creative program in which mental imagery, inventiveness, aesthetic sensibility and culture are perfected to converge and shape a fashion image and visual professional. A Fashion Stylist works for fashion houses, online and print magazines, media, bloggers, advertising agencies, fashion retailers and E-commerce platforms. 

This program is for those who wish to fulfill an important visionary role.

The Undergraduate in Fashion Styling offers vertical progress, from learning the basic skills required by the market to more practical tasks such as curating a fashion movie and providing consistency and appeal for a designer’s image. Horizontal progress is guaranteed with two projects per year, to be included in a personal portfolio.

Classes are held by teachers from the industry with hands-on and original teaching materials. Fashion Styling students have access to monthly guest lectures from experts and visionaries, an immense fashion library and the computer labs. Field trips to companies, fashion shows and trade fairs in Italy and Europe, as well as applied projects with companies, will take place throughout the two-year program.

Candidates with a secondary school (high school) diploma or equivalent are eligible and selected after the admission process. English language proficiency is required. Lessons take place from October to June, and amount to a total of 700 contact hours (as for a Master course). The course is completed with an internship in a fashion company at the end of the second year. Each academic year is worth 70 credits.
