The portfolio is a very important part of the application process. It should reflect broad examples of your work. This will be used as evidence of your creative ability and potential.
Your portfolio may include:
- Examples of your essays/written work on fashion, fashion media, fashion business, marketing and/or advertising.
- Examples of blog entries that you wrote.
- Photographs you took or a photoshoot you did.
- A link to your social media (Pinterest, Instagram, Tiktok) showcasing creative works (images, editorials, videos etc)
- Any mixed media you do: a promo video, a styling project, a garment you made etc
- Any academic or professional writing works about Fashion, Beauty, Luxury etc.
We do like to see the creative and planning processes that have contributed to your work, not just the final pieces. We also like to see some work that reflects your own personal interests, i.e. work that you might have undertaken in your own time.
We want to see your passion for your work and you’re expected to present the portfolio in a positive and interesting manner. You will be expected to display care and thought in the way that your portfolio is presented; the organisation is no less important than the content.
You should have the ability to be self-critical and extend verbally your thoughts and ideas about how you might improve and explore your initial ideas.
