Fashion styling has been acquiring a fundamental role over the past years as a solid and indispensable support to designers, who find new aesthetic formulae thanks to it. In addition to this, it is a must when presenting products whether in fashion shows, catalogues, shop windows or points of sale, not to mention that it is the main creative foundation for specialised fashion publications to work each season.
