Fashion styling is a creative programme in which mental imagery, inventiveness, aesthetic sensibility and culture are perfected so as to converge and shape a professional in fashion images and visuals.
From working with celebrity clients to styling models for photoshoots, a career in fashion styling provides exciting opportunities to share your passion for style with a variety of interesting people.
There are many different areas in which fashion stylists use their talents, from music videos and advertisements to TV shows and movies. They may also work with designers or public relations experts.
Good fashion stylists know how to accentuate the positive attributes of the people they dress. Choosing the right outfit and accessories to flatter someone — in a way that is appropriate for each event — is an art.
Fashion styling requires extensive knowledge of the fashion industry and a knack for matching your clients with the clothing that will support the image they want to project.
