Shall we post our articles on here after the deadline? Would be interesting to see people's interpretations of the brief! Should be sending mine off tomorrow morning, it's all done just need to make a few changes to the last paragraph.
haha I would love to know what everyone else wrote! I don't mind

When submitting it do you have to put it as an attachment and into the writing on the email? Confused on what body of email means

Copy and paste it into a normal email where you would normally put 'Dear..' and then attach as a document as well

10% +/- is usually the case, double checked this with my friend at CSM and said it's allowed. You don't count quotes, title or header.

Thank you.

Also, for the title they asked you to call the actual document, it contained the '/' and my mac doesn't let me save things with forward slashes in the title so i had to remove them. Anyone else done this?

I'm worrying over the smallest things lol.

I will be nearly 18 when I start uni.. I think being older is probably an advantage..! I am ridiculously nervous about submitting my piece!
I think it's a good idea to share our pieces, it would be interesting to see your interpretations.
I got my offer from LCC the other day too.
Fingers crossed for CSM and LCF. xxx

I couldnt save the word document with the whole name either I only included my student ID and name and 'fashion journalism article' but the title of the word doc i put the whole thing and the essay in the 'body' of the email.. I had 2 quotes in the essay and I included the word count with it ugh so it's probably 780 or something

I went to the showrooms of London Collections Men and managed to get into the KTZ show I couldn't believe my luck! Thanks to this really nice designer I know what they say about the fashion world being all nasty and mean isn't true it's how you perceive it with the right attitude.. Be nice to others and you will receive same treatment in due time!
