Annalisa Monfreda appointed as new editor of Tustyle

Paola Salvatore, deputy editor of Tustyle, will also take on the role of
fashion editor of Donna Moderna and Starbene

From Monday 9 July, Annalisa Monfreda, editor of the weeklies Donna Moderna and Starbene, will take on also the role of editor of Tustyle.

At the same time, Paola Salvatore, the current deputy editor of Tustyle, will expand her responsibilities following her appointment as fashion editor of Donna Moderna and Starbene.

This new organisational structure will give Tustyle, Donna Moderna and Starbene an innovative, cross-over position: on the one hand thanks to specific editorial skills, the fashion content offer for readers of the three weeklies will be enriched, while, on the other, it will be easier to enhance the relationship with interlocutors in the mass market advertising sector.

Tustyle is media partner of MKS Milano Fashion School

The Mondadori Group magazine offers a scholarship to become a fashion stylist : the successful candidate will have the opportunity to enter the wolrd of fashion thanks to high quality training

Tustyle, the Mondadori Group magazine edited by Marina Bigi, is the media partner of MKS Milano Fashion School – a high quality professional training institute in the world of fashion and a centre of excellence for Made in Italy with a strong international vocation.
Together they have launched a competition entitled: TuStyle Fashion School with as the prize a scholarship to study fashion design worth €6.900 at the prestigious school.

The annual 500-hour course in fashion styling provides professional training for fashion designers across a  wide range of areas: advertising, personal styling, shop styling, event styling, editorial and digital styling and, finally, also television styling.
The course also includes practical lessons  on different sets –  show-rooms, backstage, photographic set – and shooting sessions which enable students to acquire the necessary autonomy to create editorial material.

For the launch of the competition the fashion team of  TuStyle has produced a video tutorial featuring three MKS students. The students create three looks under the supervision of qualified stylists and receive assessments and suggestions on their work. The video tutorial will be available of the Tustyle.it web site and will mark the beginning of the period of the competition.

To participate in the competition candidates must go to fashionschool.tustyle.it through which readers between the ages of 18 and 28 can upload a photo with a look created by them, a sentence explaining what fashion means to them and their curriculum vitae (from 3 April to 2 May). Readers are also invited to post a photo of the look they have created on their social networks using the dedicated hashtag #tustylefashionschool.

By 8 May a jury made up of the TuStyle fashion team and representatives of MKS will select the winner of the scholarship.
