    Dotty1690 - I agree it's a completely open breif for self interpretation, i've already decided on my theme but i havent acutally started working on it as i've got so much coursework! i might have to start it today haha. I think the project breif is good when u can acutally decide on your theme but im not so keen on working on A4 especially when it comes to doing 20 designs on 3 pages of A4.

    Madeleinayers - I applyed back in Novemember, if i remember rightly from the open day they said they will set everyone who applied before Jan the project in Feb and those who appied after in March? but im not sure.
    The mini project is basically just 10 A4 sheets of work based on the project breif set.

    I've applied for fashion print at csm and naturally, have the same project. I'm finding it quite challening as I specialise in textiles o on my foundation and am not accustomed to doing fashion illustrations! Despite applying to one of the best college in the bloody country...oh great.

    Anyone else applied for fashion print??

    For the Fashion Print course did you submit any textile samples or textile designs?

    I've heard that for the BA fashion course at CSM you shouldn't put too much fashion in your portfolio. I'm not sure if this is true or not. Thanks!

    I didn't put any samples in, only the occasional fabric swatch for colour/patern. No embelishment or anything though.

    What do you mean by 'shouldn't put too much fashion in'?

    Do know when we're meant to find out if we have portfolio reviews or not? Is it by post or ucas?

    Thanks for the response. I've read on forums like tfs, etc. that if you're applying to BA Womenswear for example, you should include 1 garment (at most) with relevant fashion research and to include other art and design work in your portfolio.

    It could be that each person's portfolio varies though and that person just decided not to include a lot of fashion such as illustration, mood boards, and garments.

    But when I was watching the 'applying to a BA course' video on the UAL site applicants tailored their portfolio to the pathway they wanted to go into.

    I just woke up today to find out that there has been a change in my UCAS.... I logged onto track to find out that my successful has changed to unsuccessful! Haha.
    I'm really disappointed, I've decided to write a letter to find out why but I just really wanted a chance to at least show my portfolio and have a interview.
    Has anyone else got a reply back already?

    i know! well it was successful but that was just because they sent me the mini project, but i handed in the mini project on the 10th and it was on the 16th it changed to unsuccessful

    But I'm worried the project didn't to them as i handed it in person but there was complications in finding where to hand it in to.I really hope that is the case and not that my work/designs were awful.Also surely they had to look through hundreds of mini projects so how could they decide so soon!

    Jkayll when did u hand in your project and what strand was it for?

    I posted mine...It was sent special delivery..they recieved it on Monday (the deadline!). Surely it said 'invitation for interview' though not 'accepted'?

    Well not everyone will be invited to interview, thats why they had mini projects. Its better to be unsucessful now than to have an interview and get your hopes up. That's what I'm thinking anyway! I'd be gutted to have a full interview and have to go all the way to london and then be rejected. My project was for Fashion Print. Yours?

    ohh cool cool i was going to do that but i really needed the day before to make everything perfect.
    Nope didn't just said my offer had changed to unsuccessful.

    yeah i know i went to one of their open days and they explained about using the mini projects as a filter system to cut down the amount of people to interview. I would of just like to show my portfolio and at least get to speak with them in an interview.
    Oh cool, mine was Womenswear haha.
    Good luck by the way

    i got rejected from womenswear at CSM but to be honest im not surprised because i sent the same project to womenswear and fashion print simply because whilst also doing my final project at foundation i didn't have the time to do two seperate projects! my project was more tailored to the fashion print course though and i have yet to hear from them. No one should feel too down about not getting an interview, it's an extremely difficult process and a tad unfair i think! Just because so many people are applying this year. x
