Collaborative, cross-disciplinary units mirror industry practice throughout the Fashion Styling and Production (Hons) course at University of the Arts London (UAL) and students are encouraged to explore new technologies and platforms.
The importance of teamwork will be explored through collaborative projects that you will undertake, and you also work independently to develop your skills and personal style in preparation for the industry.
You will acquire the practical skills of styling and production, together with broader academic studies which give you a contemporary and historical understanding of your creative discipline within the wider perspectives of fashion, society and the environment. This will integrate the practical and theoretical aspects of your learning.
You will also learn research skills, both visual and academic, which will underpin your creative practice and develop your analytical skills and critical awareness, in readiness for the two major assignments that you will undertake in your final year.
Contact with the industry throughout the course increases your opportunities for employment after graduation, as does the opportunity to attend workshops to hone your skills in preparing for employment.
Many graduates prefer to seek employment as soon as they have completed their undergraduate studies. Recent graduates from the Foundation Degree in Styling and Photography that preceded this course, and who have made their mark on the fashion industry, include Anna Trevelyan, Anders Sølvesten Thompson and Ella Dror. Melodie Roulaud, who graduated in 2012, has had her moving image film published by 125 Magazine online and Lina Synch has gone on to set up her own business Fashion Concierge.
