Next year I'll apply for foundation at CSM and I have a lot of issues with my portfolio. I have to do the foundation because once I have finished it I'd like to apply for the Fashion Communication and Promotion course and the main issue is that my portfolio contains only photos, fashion communication projects and examples of fashion writing, so no fashion designs at all. Should I include personal fashion designs even though I'm not interested in being a fashion designer?

Its not necessary to include fashion designs, because this course isn't a fashion design degree - I'd say experiment a lot with development in styling, promotion, digital communication and independent live projects that you can document in your portfolio as evidence of growth and understanding in this field.

I've had an interview for FCP at CSM and they really do expect to see a lot of development and personal knowledge.

Hi, im interested in applying for the fashion communication and promotion MA and I am a fashion designer, in your experience with your interview what would you say it would be best to include in a portfolio? I have fashion design projects but they also include my styling and photography in them. Any advice would be very helpful! Thanks

Things like that are fine if they are supported with the element of styling, it'd be good to include things that relate to the communication said so advertorial, editorial etc..
