Stylists require a wide range of contemporary skills including strong organisational, communication and networking skills, have a creative flair and eye for design. Researching and staying up to date with the current fashion trends is a must. Fashion Stylists generally work freelance, although the demands of a stylist have evolved! 


Stylists can be involved in nearly every visual element in design. Stylists can be employed by fashion labels, shopping centres, retail stores, publishing companies, model and advertising agencies, event management companies, just to name a few.

Throughout the year ACA styling students will be privy to planning and executing photo-shoots in studio and on location, flat lays, editorial, and commercial. Students will work closely with industry photographers. By the completion of the course, ACA Styling students will have created a large digital styling portfolio to show future clients and employers as well as a diverse set of styling experiences.
