On this HNC in Fashion Styling course you’ll learn how to work with clothes, accessories and even background props to assemble a complete look or style. You’ll explore clothes and fabrics in depth so you can see how the smallest details may be used to transform an ordinary outfit into something that creates a sensation. And you’ll learn how to assess a person’s individual features so you can match the right clothes to the individual and vice versa. This is vital for a Personal Styling makeover and also if you are selecting outfits for models in photoshoots or editorials.
You’ll gain a thorough understanding of the elements of style and design and how these are used in the world of fashion. With this knowledge you’ll be able to evaluate exactly what it is that makes a fashion style or trend. That way you can recreate or adapt them at will and maybe even start a new trend of your own. Plus you’ll develop and expand your fashion vocabulary so you can communicate with colleagues and clients professionally and position yourself as a fashion expert.
Our aim on this Personal Styling course is to help you explore and nurture your own creativity and we’ll also teach you the technical skills that will enable you to communicate your Personal Styling ideas professionally to a variety of audiences. You’ll do this in a number of ways including:
