Aims of the course
The intensive course in Fashion Image Consulting allows students to develop tools and skills that are useful for working in the area of image consulting.
The object of the course is to train professionals to be able to apply specific techniques for the strategic management of the personal or company image. A professional capable of designing and developing a successful personal identity through the choice of more suitable aesthetic and behavioural components. During the lessons, the students will acquire ideas that come from the history of costume and fashion, non-verbal communication, analysis of the figure and chromatism right through to hairstyles and make-up. This is all taught through lessons in theory, workshops and simulations.
By the end of this full immersion, students will be ready to enter the professional world securely both as freelance professionals and within communications agencies and public relations specialists in image consultancy both in Italy and abroad.
In recent years, the most talented Fashion Image Consultants have enriched their own professional role in the area of purchase selection through the birth of a new professional role: the personal shopper.
