Subject Description

The aim of this subject is to extend the practical applications learned in Styling in a more conceptual environment.

It examines the relationships between style, design and art in order to expand the perspectives for concept development and creative direction.

This subject allows students to partner with peers from other disciplines on collaborative projects.  



A stylist never works alone.

Collaboration is key to this profession and essential to its survival.

Managing relations and answering client briefs is crucial to the success of a styling project – however, without compromising the creative direction and outcome.

In this subject the students will work directly with peers from Fashion Design, Photography and potentially other departments on collaborative projects.  

Project management- working within and managing group projects, including time management, creative direction and desired outcome.

Creative direction- with consideration for the collaborative vision, setting a creative direction to guide the work process. This includes concept research, creating story-boards and style-plans, sourcing props and materials, styling garments, coordinating photo/video shoots and editing.
Visual communication- visual language and the semiotics of imagery.

Fashion photography & video- how to style and capture images (composition, setting, lighting) and working with the camera.
Editing- the process of selecting images & sequences of moving images including digitally manipulating and stylizing an image.
