Fashion MA portfolio information for applicants

A good portfolio for an application to MA Fashion at Kingston School of Art should include:

  • Evidence of research. This is fundamental to the design process and there should be strong evidence that you can gather interesting visual research that develops the concept and narrative of your design work.
  • Evidence of process. Process work is evidence of how the final outcomes of a project are arrived at. This could and should include evidence of research work, sketchbook work, 3D work, design drawing. How you think and work as a designer is communicated with this work.
  • 3D work. The MA Fashion course at Kingston School of Art believes in thinking through making. This means that ideas and designs are explored through, and developed by, making in 3D. It also means that what you make can inform the design work, rather than the 3D work being a reaction to drawn ideas.
  • Design drawing and thinking. How do you communicate your ideas during the process of the project. These are your ‘every day' design drawings that you produce as part of a design project.
  • Evidence of considered use of colour and fabrics. How do you develop a palette of fabrics and colours for a project?
  • Technical drawings of clothes.
  • Examples of illustrations exploring different styles and use of different techniques.
