Fashion Styling

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This Fashion Styling qualification is an internationally recognised award.  This fashion styling course will give you the skills and knowledge to work in the dynamic and highly competitive arena of commercial Fashion Styling. Commercial Fashion Styling blends fashion know-how with business savvy. It’s where you (the Fashion Stylist) present a complete fashion look or display in a way that grabs consumers’ attention and makes them want to buy! In commercial fashion styling, you may deal with everything from designer catwalk shows to fashion adverting and marketing campaigns.

Commercial fashion styling can be demanding and challenging but all successful stylists will agree it is exciting, rewarding and lucrative if you get it right…
