Becoming Fashion Stylist
A creative attitude, aesthetic sensibility, an eye for emerging trends and the ability to express visionary ideas. This is the profile of the Fashion Stylist, an expert in style and visionary creation, the architect of the final image with which a brand, a flagship or a fashion product presents itself and interfaces with the public. For this strategic role, the Fashion Stylist must not only be talented but also cultivate team spirit, develop marketing communication skills, know the research methodology and deepen the linguistic and metalinguistic codes of his or her public.
You will learn how to become a Fashion Stylist on our one-year course in fashion styling, where you will have the opportunity to learn all the techniques through fieldwork and increase the indispensable skills to handle the styling for fashion shows and advertisement campaigns, fashion reviews, lookbooks and catalogues, digital stores and storytelling…. and you will be able to transform everything else into a unique visual experience.

Aims of the course
The Fashion Styling course aims to create a image professional and develop the stylist’s professional role in many fields: advertising, personal styling, store styling, event styling, styling for publishing and digital media, right up to styling for television.
The 500-hour course includes classes with resident tutors with experience in the industry, external lecturers with an international profile and a programme of seminars and lectures that allows students to approach and have direct contact with the reality of work with the Made in Italy and international companies. In addition, practical lessons on different work sets – show-room, backstage, photographic sets – are organised, as well as shooting sessions that will allow students to acquire the autonomy needed to conceive, plan and create an editorial to include in their own professional portfolio to present to companies, designers, art directors and photographers.
MKS Milano Fashion School, being a core element of Backstage Service Group, can count on deep ties with MKS Milano Fashion Agency, which allows all its students the possibility of gaining high level professional experience while attending the course.
At the end of the academic year, each student will be ready to get work experience as a stylist assistant or to continue their studies by pursing a master’s degree.
