The Fashion Styling Club
The Fashion Styling Club takes great pride in teaching students about the aspects of “styling” in the fashion world. The Fashion Styling Club will not only help students to grasp a clear understanding of the overall basic knowledge one should know when entering a career in the fashion industry, but will give those determined students a chance to actually apply what they have learned through constructive photo shoots. Students will be able to develop or further extend their very own fashion styling portfolios. Members of the club will gain learning objectives through practical hands-on experience.

A portfolio is a tool used by industry professionals, which showcases all of the stylist’s work. It is a compilation of prints from photo shoots or tears from magazines for which the stylist provided the wardrobe and dressed the talent. All Members are responsible for the creation of their very own fashion styling portfolio. They must produce a photo shoot for this portfolio, which entails providing the wardrobe and finding a photographer, model, and hair and makeup. At the end of the semester the students will present their portfolios.
