Portfolio of work showing personal work, school work, finished and prepared which demonstrates a commitment to Fashion Design


Your portfolio is the chance to show us your skills and your passion and as a guide we would like to see some, but not necessarily all, of the following:

  • show us 10-15 pieces of your very best work: quality is more important than quantity
  • include both taught and personal work
  • demonstrate drawing skills (from live observation, as well as from photos or reference materials)
  • show us your personal ideas and areas of interest (if you’re passionate about a certain subject, show it!)
  • experiment with a wide range of media and materials
  • show your research and ideas in sketchbooks or notebooks
  • only use work you have made in the last 18 months: nothing older
  • submit it electronically as a PPT or PDF, or arrange an interview to show your work in person.
