Interviews and Portfolios

A commitment to and an enthusiasm for fashion are essential. Any relevant work experience will be advantageous.

Your previous studies, experiences and portfolio of work will be unique and, as part of the interview process, we invite you to show us your portfolio and ask you to discuss your interest in the subject. We are looking for creativity and originality, something that will distinguish your work and reveal your personality.

What we look for

We recognise that everyone has different skills, portfolios and experiences, so what we look for is potential through a broad range of work that expresses the scope of your creative experiences and shows evidence of enquiry and experimentation. Previous sewing experience might be useful but is not necessary, as this will be taught during the first year. Examples of life or figurative drawings are welcome as well as a sketchbook documenting your ideas.

We are looking for enthusiastic students who are committed to pursuing a career in fashion. Even if you have not studied fashion in a formal way before, we would expect you to keep yourself up to date by visiting exhibitions, reading books and magazines and visiting stores. Interests outside of Course work are of particular interest to us even if they are Fashion related. We also consider personality and character to be important at interview.
