Top Fashion Glossary & What They Mean
What is a Stylist?
The Fashion Industry
The value of the Australian Fashion Industry is $21 billion in retail sales and employs 37,000 people.
Fashion is so much more than clothing – it’s about the total experience, innovation, technology, sustainability, ethical and social responsibility are paramount.
Australia leads the way with its strong stance on sustainability and ethical sourcing, particularly amongst new and emerging designers.
Wherever there is light, there is colour. While we think of colours as independent - this is blue, that is red - a colour is never seen alone but always in the context of other colours. Like a musical note, no one colour is "good" of "bad". Rather, it's one part of composition that as a while is pleasing or not. The colour wheel is our tool for understanding how colours relate to one another.
Fashion Writing & Blogging
We will introduce you to writing for a range of media. As a stylist you may be asked to write complementary text or captions for your photoshoots from your clients or employer.
