With the proliferation of celebrity fashion ranges across the high-street, and the increase in brands offering consumer-designed products and advertisments, it seems that everyone these days qualifies to be a designer. Which is why it comes as a surprise to read that alongside the numerous creative degrees already offered, one university feels the need to launch the first ever degree in styling.

In September Southampton Solent University (no, i’ve never heard of it either) will begin teaching an already over-subscribed degree in fashion styling that, according to the website "will help you to gain an understanding of fashion forecasting and concept trend development. You will learn how fashion stylists work creatively with magazines (in studios and on location), influence designers, and help ‘theme and stage’ catwalk shows. You will have the opportunity to explore the importance of celebrity dressing and model scouting, and understand image as an advertising tool through fashion styling, make up and hair design."
