I'm also really amazed by the student work Each of them has its own character and it's all so original. I heard the teachers push them to find their own identity/style in the first year
I agree with one of the comments: What are they feeding them?!

well on to the point..

I was wondering if anyone could tell me some more about the entrance exam. On the website it said "drawings and sketches from plaster casts in pencil or charcoal, and watercolour paintings of a still life of fabrics and garments"
Are they looking for very good drafting, skilled, precise, realistic..etc.. that kind of drawing,
Or something more creative and expressive.. more 'artistic' and something that portays individuality.

Also, I have just finished highschool, during which I did Sculpture, Printmaking and Design (graphic/computer, not fashion). I make clothes in my own time, am an able seamstess, and recently started a night class in patternmaking (rather boring tho! ).
Would it matter that if I don't include any fashion related material in my portfolio?
I have plenty of material from school work, but am not so competent at fashion sketches ;_;

Anyway, any kind of info would be greatly appreciated!!!
I've applied for CSM foundation, but am worried that it will be a waste of time and $$$ since I already know what I want to do + I'm dying to go to Antwerp!

Thanks in advance for any help =)
I think we feel similarly, though I had planned to apply to antwerp after doing a foundation and perhaps even a BA. I recently found out, mind you, that you don't have to pay for art foundations if you do them straight after college/high school. I'm also querying into if you have to after that, I think after taking a gap year it's ok too. Anyway am finding that out, if it is free, perhaps it would be better to get some more experience, as I'm sure I read on the site they prefer it from international students.

+ONE magazine by 4th year students of antwerp fashion department
Welcome to the first issue of '+ONE' magazine, a collaborative project by the seventeen final year students from the Fashion Department of Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts. The basis for '+ONE' lies in the creative teamwork of emerging young fashion designers and their renowned Belgian counterparts, most of whom are Antwerp Academy graduates. The project is unique in its concept as it is the first time that so many established names join forces with young, up and coming talent on a single project. Contrasting visions and creative cooperation merge in more than one hundred pages of selected material prepared by this group of students during their last academic year.


This magazine includes their graduation collection combined with garments and accessories from their "partner" designer, as well as thematic chapters representing their ideas, inspirations and design universe. '+ONE' will be sold during the Antwerp Academy graduation show (15, 16 and 17 June 2006), an event that attracts every year an enthusiastic crowd of over 6,000 visitors. Furthermore, it will be distributed in fashion stores and bookshops throughout Europe and officially presented in Paris during the men's fashion week at the beginning of July 2006.

Through an interview and artistic exercises several competences will be tested. Basic skills, communication, knowledge of and interest in history, art, design, culture and socio-political matters. Interest and knowledge in Fashion with a general curiousity and openness to new experiences and ideas and an individual critical attitude. The entrance examination will be completed by the practical tests like drawing from observation, colour studies related to the course.

This compromises drawings and sketches from plaster casts in pencil or charcoal, and watercolour paintings of a still life of fabrics and garments. All applicants have to present a portfolio containing a selection of drawings sketches, photographs, etc
this is wat their website says about the entrance exam and the portfolio .
they aren't really specific about the portfolio .
I know this girl maybe she could help ..

Royal Academy in Antwerp for Fashion
Hey does anyone know anything about how to apply to this school? I checked out their website but it's pretty vague on their requirements. It's like shrouded in mystery.

Does anyone know anyone who went there? Whats the workload like? I'm thinking about applying and I already go to Parsons in NYC. Any help would be much appreciate!!
