The Fashion Stylist course aims to introduce the professional figure of the Stylist, analyzing his skills and different activities.
The course will be based on theoretical lessons in which the unwritten rules that articulate relations with press offices, photo agencies, etc. will be deepened.
An extremely important part of the course is one of the seminars with professionals, which will allow the students to have direct contact with international working realities.
A special relationship that IFDA has with magazines such as ELLE, Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, VOGUE, etc. allows both visits and seminars directly with great exponents of fashion and communication.
The Fashion Stylist course is a short course that aims to communicate and develop the profession of a stylist in all its fields: fashion, photo-shooting, advertising, still-life, personal stylist, television.
Practical shooting sessions will be held in the studio, which will allow students to acquire the necessary autonomy to design, organise and implement the first editorial to be presented and to be included as the first project in their portfolio.
