The CSP in Fashion Styling introduces students to the extensive range of professions that can be found within this field and provides them with the basic skills and expertise required to carry out specific creative projects.

A stylist provides creative support to produce attractive images that inspire and motivate the desire of viewers. They provide the visual communication of concepts that reflect the style of their clients or their desired audience through their work and cultural knowledge and references.

Working in partnership with designers, brands, print and digital publications, retailers and on sales platforms, fashion stylists play a key role in developing, presenting and promoting seasonal products and trends. In film, television and video, stylists or costume designers play a crucial role in creating both identifiable and fantastical characters, a task that requires expert teamwork.
