I am over the moon to have been offered a place at London College of Fashion for Costume for Performance, however I have now also got into Fashion Womenswear at Central St Martins, which is also unbelievably amazing!!
But now I am in a huge dilemma over which one to choose! Please can anyone give me some information on either course and which they think is better!?

Personally I would choose CSM as it is pretty much my life aspiration to go there haha, anyway im sorry for being a pain but do you have a Flickr account or anything? I'm applying to CSM next year and I'm just wondering what kind of work they are looking for? Thank you!

Sorry I don't! To be honest I didn't actually have a huge amount of straight forward fashion in my portfolio, a lot of my work is much more fine art/performance based, and so I think they like to see something that shows a different way of thinking, quite conceptual work and most definitely be very experimental ! Hope that helps

Thankyou! Don't worry about it, keep with the fashion/textiles stuff - that is what you are applying for after all! Foundation will most definitely help, A levels don't make a difference as long as you have foundation. just remember to be really experimental, take risks, try out loads of ideas, and think outside the box! Good luck! x

I seriously wouldn't worry about that now, I didn't include a single thing from A level in my portfolio! My A level stuff seems awful to me now! Thats what the foundation year is for, building up a good portfolio to get you into uni. The whole interview process was really long, first there was a portfolio review, then we had to wait around the whole day just for a five minute interview with the tutors! The actual interview wasn't that bad, its just getting to that point is the hard bit! Anyway, thankyou and good luck with your A levels !

Hey Joehallett17,

Great to hear that you are interested in applying for Central Saint Martins (CSM). Was there a particular course you were looking at?

I think the main thing they are looking for at interview is your passion for and commitment to the subject and confidence in your own work and ideas. CSM is a school where I feel it's really important to have your own voice.

The competitive nature for getting in to CSM varies from year to year and differs depending on what course you're applying for but don't let this stop you.

Please do not hesitate to ask any more specific questions.

Kindest,

Tegan

Hey Joehallett17,

All the fashion design courses at CSM are relatively competitive but don't let this stop you. If you don't try you won't know!

You can check out the requirements and find out more information about the BA Fashion Design Menswear here.

Good luck with your application.

All the best,

Hello!

I am thinking of applying for the January 2022 intake for the MA in Fashion Communications: Fashion Journalism, does this course require a portfolio? If so, do you have any tips for what a candidate can do to stand out positively?

Thanks!

Hi mrsjomiloju

MA Fashion Communication: Fashion Journalism does not require a portfolio but there is a written element that you need to submit. Have a look under 'Entry Requirements' on the course page for full details.

Best wishes,
