3-Week Courses – Fashion Image & Styling
The course focuses on the analysis of image and the development of style. From the definition of fashion
moods to the importance of accessories, participants will analyse aspects related to traits of the body
and learn how to enhance and complement physical characteristics. They will develop a style through
the construction of a total look and capture it in a photo shoot.
Style overview: study of past, present and future fashion
trends, as well as the elements that characterise them, and
tools such as colour, silhouette, garment details and accessories.
Participants will receive specific skills in sourcing and
collating information from research tools such as books and
fashion magazines and through specific virtual domains.
Personal identity: participants will analyse the different
types of human faces and bodies. Participants will be introduced
to the skills and techniques used to enhance particular
physical features such as hairstyling and make-up.
Introduction to photoshoot: conduct an in-depth study of
the fundamental elements used to dictate a style (i.e. the
importance of colour, silhouette, accessories and their combination).
Participants will learn the skills necessary to be
an effective personal shopper.
Style definition: create a styling portfolio, a true style book.
Participants will learn to define, develop and present a particular
style, which is coherent in all of its visual elements.
The final assessment of the portfolio arising from the presentation
to tutors, who will give participants feedback on
the activities undertaken during the course.
