Program description

Master in Styling, Image and Fashion Communication

Behind every magazine cover, television show, important event, runway or advertisement there is one or even more stylists that shape the image the public receives, and curate from the model’s look to its relation to the surroundings, so that the aesthetic proposal represents the ideas and values desired.

Beyond the role of the fashion designer, the stylist or image consultant has become a key to determine the success of a brand: knowing the trends or being able to predict them generates a product or an image attractive enough for a changing and demanding consumer.

Therefore, be it for commercial, institutional or editorial communication, consultancy in styling and image is revealed as a fundamental tool for innovation and positioning in brands. Through a six areas program, the master will give you a transversal knowledge that goes from notions of coolhunting and fashion sociology, to concepts of coaching, protocol and even industry.

The classes are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 19.00 to 22.00h.

Admission requirements

The master in Consultancy in Styling, Image, and Communication is addressed to university graduates and professionals with experience in Communication, Design, Fine Arts, Protocol, Styling and similar disciplines. It’s also directed towards those who are part of the entrepreneurial world, or who come from the communication or psychology fields and are interested in amplifying their professional skills in order to center in consultancy in styling and image.
