Portfolio Building For Your Fashion Career
Dual City Courses - London Milan
Tutors: Ian Kettle (London) and Lee Pring (Milan)
A portfolio is essential for any student wishing to apply to study fashion at degree level. This course will guide you through the process of creating a portfolio, illustrating the importance of research as a starting point for your designs and showing you how to present your work in a way that will demonstrate how you have arrived at your end project.
You will start from scratch to develop your ideas - this is not about utilising existing work in your portfolio. Throughout the course you will work on project briefs designed to develop a rounded portfolio.
- Research skills
- Finding inspiration
- Design and illustration skills
- Presentation and communication skills
- Fashion Trends and History
Who should attend:
To join this course it will help if you can draw, but that is not essential. You should have good English skills and a willingness to learn. This course is suitable for beginners, but also general students who have completed one or two years of university studies (BA) in the field of Fashion and want to enhance their portfolio by using techniques acquired at these two renowned Fashion Colleges. Students should be creative, enjoy working on self-directed projects and be keen to be immersed in the design school atmosphere.
London (9 day course)
Monday 25 June to Thursday 5 July
If you are interested in fashion and thinking of going to a fashion college but need advice on how to get there then this course is your first step. During the first nine days you will be immersed in the famous fashion department of Central Saint Martins where you will complete short projects that push your creativity, develop your research skills and nurture an analytic approach to your work and the work of others. You will study design and illustration skills, how to be inspired by people and places around you and how to create a portfolio that prepares you for further studies. You will be expected to work hard and fast, learn from your mistakes and not be scared to take risks. By the end of your time in London you will have created a portfolio of sketches, designs and illustrations, and leave with an enthusiasm to begin creating further project work during your time in Milan. Lectures and studio sessions will be combined with visits to museums and galleries and other places of interest to designers.
