Diploma in Image & Fashion Styling
A fashion designer is responsible for designing clothes, while a fashion stylist works with clothes, accessories and even background props to assemble a complete look or style. Stylists are also frequently called on to conduct individual makeovers and to select the appropriate models to showcase outfits in the best possible light; so the ability to assess body types, proportions and individual characteristics is just as vital to success as an eye for style. Good stylists are in such high demand because they have an ability to transform the mundane into something visually exciting and desirable.
Another appealing possibility of the professional image and fashion consultancy is the growing demand for personal shopping services. Expert understanding of image and fashion will qualify you to offer these services, where you can literally get paid to go on a shopping spree.
The The Design Ecademy Diploma in Image & Fashion Styling is one of the few courses available in the world (and it is the only home study course that we know of) to focus on image and fashion styling, as opposed to design. It is an in-depth training programme specifically aimed at those pursuing a career in this exciting new industry, which is currently growing at a rapid rate. With the image and fashion styling industry now becoming more established, potential clients and employers are looking for stylists with specialised training and qualifications. If you are serious about pursuing a career in this area, then you can expect to achieve high levels of skill and knowledge with this course, increasing your credibility and significantly improving your chances of entering this industry at a progressive level.
As in all our courses, each lesson will introduce you to new skills and knowledge, and on completion of each lesson you will be required to submit an assignment, putting into practice what you have just learnt. Each assignment will be assessed and returned to you with valuable feedback from your tutor, so that you can continually improve your work, and attain the high standard demanded in the industry. The assignments have been deliberately structured so that they can be used as a portfolio of work to help you impress potential clients and employers on completion of your course. At the end of the course you will be asked to complete a Final Project, which will involve designing and communicating your original styling ideas and a makeover in response to a typical client brief. Our students find this Final Project to be an especially valuable addition to their portfolios.
