Graduate Certificate in Fashion Styling
Your creative practice will evolve through projects, workshops and lectures that are designed to develop your potential as a fashion stylist.
From idea and garment research, through to concept development, to technical planning and organization for photoshoots, you will extend your understanding of contemporary fashion styling, while gaining practical skills in photography, editing, retouching and visual communication, and contextual knowledge, that support your progression into industry or postgraduate study.
This carefully structured programme is designed to build your skills and knowledge in fashion styling and an understanding of your potential in this rapidly changing industry.
The term 1 unit: Fashion Styling and Image, explores the fashion styling process, from in-depth, personal research and visual experimentation, balanced by an understanding their position in the market. Effective communication is essential and this is addressed in multiple formats - in every aspect of your work - from the research book, through to more formal technical books and portfolio work, and through academic writing for fashion.
The term 2 unit: Fashion Styling Practice, emphasises a more personal and problem-solving approach to fashion styling, where ethical considerations are explored through personal research, and your creative expressions of an inclusive approach to styling and representation. The styling and photography work are underpinned by Fashion Futures and Sustainability lectures that will enable you to understand and consider ways of addressing the challenges faced by the fashion industry of the future. In addition, you will develop your digital communication skills, in order to present your portfolio work in a professional manner.
Across terms 1 and 2, students will study on a separate unit that aims to meet their specific requirements. Students that need to improve their English Language, in preparation for postgraduate study or employment, will be take classes in English across the two terms. For those who already have a good level of English, additional photography and portfolio development lessons will advance their skills and understanding of these areas.
