Inside Fashion Styling

Fall 2020

Taught By: Nick Nelson

Section: A

CRN: 9737

Credits: 3

In this course we will respond to changing ideas in the professional practice of fashion styling, creative direction and editorial photography, through contemporary techniques and media, as well as through new contexts. Across a series of themed, studio-based workshops, that are augmented by critical references from magazines, video, social media, literature, etc., we will examine how styling contributes to and reflects on social narratives. Movements and trends are discussed as reactions to social change by the culture industry as well as meaningful agents for emancipation in themselves – that become manifest in appearances, body politics and the construction of contemporary identities and performances. Our workshops will create original forms of representations for the fashion industry while reflecting on standards for the integrity and social responsibility of styling. Students will learn how to produce still and moving fashion images across a selection of contemporary media that respond to new tendencies, and research and experiment with structures of communication that produce and reflect these tendencies. The course is designed for an upcoming generation of fashion stylists who are able to balance commercial success with creative practice, to generate beauty and meaningful appearances for changing societies. Open to: University undergraduate degree students. Pre-requisite(s): PUFY 1001 Integrative Studio 2 or PAFC 1100 CORE 1 or PAFD 1100 CORE 1
