I recently had the chance to get a glimpse of the world of Vogue through the eyes and words of editors and styling experts. The styling week programme at the Conde Nast College in London was an excellent additon to my previous training as an art director for fashion with Central Saint Martins a few months ago.
When working in the field of fashion photography, you quickly realise there is so much more to the job than just clicking on a button, or even selecting the right lighting, sets, poses and equipment. You need to understand brand management and visual communication, know the names in the industry and their stylistic identities. When creating visual stories for brands or media, it is a necessity to think about the underlying story – in other words, the art direction.
