Overview

Throughout the course you will acquire skills not only in styling, but also in make-up and hair, photography, retouching, trend forecasting and branding – making you a complete creative director with the skillset to become a distinctive and visionary voice within the fashion industry.

You will be supported to grow confidence in your understanding and use of independent learning and show an awareness of professional and personal development. And will be taught how to professionally apply the practical and technical skills developed throughout the studies for a diverse range of media and design platforms.

Crucial for this is collaboration and working as part of a creative team, with the ability to have an open and flexible approach to ideas. You will be encouraged to show initiative and demonstrate the ability to research and discuss sociocultural issues and perspectives that are related to the progression of visual design practice.

You will evaluate both contemporary, and historical fashion and lifestyle trends, for the formulation of creative and visual communication. And throughout this process, will practice self-reflection and critically challenge your own work and that of others, to develop a deeper understanding of your own development as a creative practitioner whilst being conscious and aware of how their work and research can impact on the wider community, both locally and globally.

Your learning is aided by free access to specialist hair and make-up studios. These studios include airbrush guns, studio lights and other industry-standard fixtures. Solent’s media academy boasts high-spec photography studios and IT facilities, as well as a range of the latest editing software.
