With the influx of influencers, bloggers and celebrities dominating our social media feeds, the fashion stylist has become one of the most exciting, in-demand and powerful roles within the fashion industry today.

If you’re a regular reader of fashion titles like Vogue, i-D, Elle, Grazia, or a follower of influential fashion bloggers and influencers on social media, this course will allow you to explore the paths to take you forward into this exciting industry.


As a fashion stylist you work with a team of industry experts (designers, make-up artists and photographers), and so this course is structured to reflect this dynamic.

It’s great for someone looking to build first-hand experience and portfolio-standard work that’ll support an attempt to gain work experience and college/university applications.

You’ll be introduced to the many possible career opportunities fashion styling can lead to within the industry, including magazine editorial, online retail, in store, celebrity/television and personal shopping.

The course will include daily lectures and workshops which will set the tone for the day’s practical task, whilst working alongside a week long project which will conclude with a final presentation.

Lectures will include industry interviews, short films and presentations.

Alongside this you’ll lead research in the classroom and in the library, looking at the history of fashion styling.

What will I gain?

The final outcome of the course will be a mood board showing your research and creative approach, and a high-quality image, all of which can be added to your portfolio.

Tutor profile: Dennis Immanuel started his fashion career whilst studying at University.

Short of cash, he started to customise t-shirts using an airbrush, and selling them out of his dormitory to other students on campus.

A natural artist with a true entrepreneurial spirit, Dennis started a streetwear label called Moniyang with a friend, which grew a keen following in London.

Dennis has also been a costume designer, working on the romantic Bollywood comedy ‘Ticket to Bollywood’ which was filmed in London, Bournemouth and Mumbai.

Dennis has since been commissioned to style for the Jonathan Ross show and London Fashion Week, as well as giving live style makeovers on Sky’s Chrissy B Show.

Dennis was also the stylist for award-winning independent film ‘White Colour Black’, which was selected for the prestigious BFI London Festival.

Dennis’s credits include some top industry publications such as Disorder Magazine, Asiana Magazine, HUF Magazine, The Pink Prince Magazine, Menswear Buyer and many more.

He has also worked on commercial campaigns for Snickers, Money and Hownd.
