I'm a mature student looking to go back to Uni to study Fashion.
I studied art to A levels - I know how to draft basic patterns and have made a fair few pieces (from jackets and skirts to trousers, ball gowns and other bits). However, all my design/prep work isn't available so I'd have to start my portfolio from scratch.
Would really appreciate some help with the following questions:
- Do you have to do a Foundation Degree to stand a chance of getting into Fashion Design at CSM?
- How polished are they expecting your portfolio to be? Or is it more showing how you think and plan?
- How much design do you do on the Fashion Design with Marketing course at CSM?
I'm trying to decide whether to try my luck at getting a place on a Foundation Degree for this September (I realise how late I am!) or whether I'm better off leaving this and just trying for a Fashion Design Womenswear or Marketing place for September 2014.
I'll willing to put in the time and hard graft to get there, but if I'm going to be studing for the next 5 years I'd rather try kick it off this September
Thanks in advance for your help.
