Mumbai , Maharashtra ,India


The 3-year progressing course in Fashion Styling provides participants with the principle techniques in contemporary image creation covering the international worlds of luxury, fashion and publishing. Fashion stylists play a major role: they emphasise the style and image of a fashion collection, brand or product from the catwalk to campaign, while also working on the presentation of creative ideas, upcoming trends and visual communication.

Starting with theoretical concepts related to image, styling, photography and visual communication, this course addresses key notions and processes in creating and editing professional photo shoots, as well as cultural studies in the history of art and dress, and the fashion system.

Participants learn how to produce photo shoots by applying technical and aesthetic aspects of fashion photography to manipulate and edit photographic works for professional fashion styling proposals.

Working directly from their own ideas, participants progress onto more complex photo sessions and also investigate managing a team and selecting the most appropriate outfits.
Over the three years participants gain a solid foundation in developing ideas through research and are encouraged to apply critical thinking to their own creative and personal styling development.

Structured in three distinct levels, participants can choose when to build on their experience by progressing from one level to another, giving them complete control on their own progress and achievement.  Upon successful completion of both levels, participants will have gained a solid base in fashion styling, providing them with the opportunity to enter the industry, or progress further in their studies to a higher level of comprehension and skill.

The course is aimed at candidates who have the ambition to become professional fashion stylists, or who are looking to enter the fashion styling, publishing and creative industries.



Trainees attending the undergraduate Progressing Courses in Mumbai have the opportunity to further excel in styling, creativity and research, by completing their study pathway at one of Istituto Marangoni’s Schools in Italy, Milano or Firenze. On successful completion of that programme they will be awarded the 3-year Undergraduate Certificate1 from the European school.

** The addition of a short intensive 6-week module of Culture and English Language is required for trainees wishing to enter year 3 of Istituto Marangoni’s European Undergraduate Certificate Programmes.  For full details please contact the school.
