Students work with styling agencies for television and reality shows, as well as with popular photographers to style portfolios. Starting their careers as assistant stylists to established high-end industry stylists, these individuals learn and – eventually – establish themselves in this highly competitive, creative, challenging, and exciting industry.

This PG in Fashion Styling & Image Design aims to develop and build fashion figures who are responsible for styling a designer’s collection, consulting with brands, deciphering fashion trends, and creating fashion images in collaboration with magazines, designers, brands, production houses, and e-commerce websites. Participants of this course develop professional skills & abilities by developing a deep understanding of aesthetic vision, instilled through a rigorous & holistic learning approach.

Initially, the course focuses on concepts, skills, and training to create a knowledge bank of fashion and design by providing elementary fashion awareness. Gradually, this accentuates the co-relation between the thought and employment of styling solutions in diverse areas of fashion, retail, media, and entertainment. The final project eventually readies these emerging stylists to take on the fashion world.
