Highly creative and practical, this degree will teach you how to think like a fashion stylist and communicator within the fast-moving and dynamic world of fashion.
As part of the global fashion industry, the fashion stylist and communicator creates visual stories, employs technologies and exploits promotional platforms. You’ll learn how to engage with audiences and tell ‘style stories’ to transform fashion products from just objects into modern must-have trends.
You’ll become proficient in visual research, illustration and storyboarding, and project management. Study a wide and practical range of topics including computer-aided design (CAD), photography and video for fashion, concept building, fashion illustration, event styling and production, freelance/self-employment skills and project management.
You’ll work collaboratively with peers and industry experts and foster a network of future career contacts and opportunities, gaining the skills you’ll need to act as a consultant to industry partners, including fashion brands, fashion media and event organisations.
You can take part in national and international competitions to gain experience of working to a client brief and benefit from raising your profile within the industry. Graduates can expect to flourish in careers within the fashion styling and communication industries as journalist contributors, media commentators, promoters, editors or stylists, and with big fashion brands and media groups.
