The Styling Closet is the Fashion Styling program's inventory of over 2,500 garments, accessories, and props that students can rent for free when enrolled in a styling class. It is a great resource for those on a budget when styling for multiple projects and photo shoots.

To keep up with trends, new items are added each semester. The types of pieces range from brands such as Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçons, Marc Jacobs, Elizabeth and James, Prada, Zara, H&M, and J-Crew to authentic hand-picked vintage pieces from various decades to one-of-a-kind garments donated from the Academy of Art University MFA & BFA Design collections. 

A visual inventory can be accessed via Pinterest.


The styling closet is open throughout the semester, supporting students in their various assignments, midterm, and final projects. The closet hours of operation may differ day by day, so please check our calendar to plan your pulls accordingly. Closet hours are up to date and always accessible through our events calendar.
