Description

Behind every photo story there lies a concept. Styling is not just a coincidental creation but rather a composition of carefully chosen elements. Whether for an artistic photo series or an editorial in Vogue, the concept needs to be strong. During this course we will explore the elements of fashion styling and putting together a unique fashion story, working in small groups.

We will learn how to research and create a clear visual communication of our concept while working in teams.

With the visualisation of our story on a mood board or sketchbook, we will explore all elements in styling.

Although we will be working in groups for some days of the course, each student will be challenged individually.

Level: All levels.

Entry requirements: None

Testimonial

"The quality of education given and the exposure to the industry is amazing. Every bit of the course was so informative and knowledgeable. Also, the library of central saint martins is the best library I've ever come across in my life. I would love to have the opportunity to do my masters from a college like csm. Also, our tutor Petra Metzger guided me very well throughout the course, helped me in learning of my problem areas and develop my skills. Definitely, the best experience ever" - Miss L Arora, July 2015




Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
