That scary thing called 'The Future'

So I've been thinking about the future a lot recently; what I want to do with my life and how I'm going to get there. I know I want to be a fashion designer and I know I want to study at Central Saint Martins. I've done a lot of research about the college which to be honest has only made me more nervous... Apparently around 600 students apply every year for the fashion design course and only 50 get a place. Scary, I know.
When applying for an arts course at a university, your portfolio is probably the thing that they mostly take into consideration. I've done a lot of research about fashion portfolios- what to include, how to present them and all of that stuff. Here are some images I found.

What I noticed most was how the designer explored shape, colours, fabrics and patterns all on the same way and also how clearly presented the designs were. I also really liked the use of different medias, especially the collage work with magazine cut outs and fabrics.
When creating a portfolio I think the most important thing is make it original and unique to you. It should be a representation of you as a designer. I know I'm not at Central saint Martins level (yet) but here's a start of my to portfolio.

Lots of love,

  1. You just have to believe in yourself. You will make it, and if you don't then the future holds something else bigger and greater for you :)
