    Hi,
    I was just wondering what sorts of questions will be asked in a fashion design interview. I've been told that they go through your portfolio with you but I have no idea what they'll ask!! My interviews are at Nottingham Trent, Southampton, and Lincoln - if anyone had an interview there for the same course, I'd be extremely grateful for any tips and advice!! Thank you!!
    And also- what do I wear?! Smart clothes or fashionable clothes?!

    The interview will obviously vary from course to course, but typically they will ask about your portfolio and specifically about individual projects. You will need to explain your creative thought process and how you developed the project from your initial idea to the realised outcome.

    They will also ask why you've chosen their course and what you hope to gain from studying there.

    They may ask who or what inspires you, whether it be a particular designer or even a fashion house. They will probably try to gage your awareness of fashion and design in general, so will ask whether you've been following LFW or any other event in the fashion calendar.

    As for what to wear, I would recommend staying true to your own style. At the very least, you should know what's on trend. If you're stuck, perhaps take a look at http://lookbook.nu/ or something similar.

    Good luck.
