Welcome to our second graduating cohort of the University of Brighton’s BA(Hons) Fashion Communication with Business Studies course in 2019. This book celebrates the achievements of the students and the course. The work presented here exhibits the range of creative skills that the students have to offer in preparation for the next steps in their careers. The Fashion Communication with Business Studies course is divided into three main pathways; fashion photography and styling, fashion imaging and illustration and visual promotion; this book has examples from all pathways. The course is designed to provide a solid foundation for a career in areas including fashion photography, styling, publishing, fashion film, forecasting, creative and art direction, picture editing, PR or visual merchandising. Business studies also forms an integral part of the course, helping students to prepare business plans and think in terms of enterprise and entrepreneurship. Many of our graduates presented in this book also took the opportunity to take a placement year at a fashion organisation. Through this they have gained valuable industry contacts and have an excellent portfolio of work experience.
