In this studio students learn the fundamentals of wardrobe styling. Students will have the opportunity to learn some of the core requirements that come with being a stylist, including imagination, research, communication, and collaboration. Students will develop the skill of processing ideas to build mood boards and have the chance to see some of their ideas come to life. This leads to firsthand experiences that teach students how to creatively and technically adjust for both on and off figure styling. Ultimately students will explore how to use clothing as a vehicle for storytelling.
