The fashion industry is one of the cultural and economic engines of European companies, from the luxury sector to retail distribution, and there are many professionals who contribute their knowledge and capacity for work to help create, present and promote the products designed by this sector. Fashion styling has been acquiring a fundamental role over the past years as a solid and indispensable support to designers, who find new aesthetic formulae thanks to it. In addition to this, it is a must when presenting products whether in fashion shows, catalogues, shop windows or points of sale, not to mention that it is the main creative foundation for specialised fashion publications to work each season.

It is increasingly important for styling content to be created by people who have a great impact on the social networks and to know how essential this environment is today.
