I did this last year, in 'Introduction To The Fashion Industry'.

It was good, very informative and I learnt alot about what it takes for the career I want, I'd reccomend it!

^ oh, i hope they do. I just assumed they did and was looking at the housing. I clicked on the "accommodation" link for the courses and so i assumed they did.

I was just wondering if you've never actually studied fashion design etc, what course should you start with? especially if you can only go once.

e.g. do I choose the Beginner's Sewing course together with the Pattern Making course? Or do i also need to know how fabrics move etc so i choose the correct materials? Or do i do the overall fashion design course that teaches you to draw etc?

What's the most important first step to ground yourself and prepare for future courses. Would sewing/pattern making be the best as most courses seem to require such skills?
Because i wouldn't think you could go into fashion designing (illustrations) without knowing anything about materials?

I had the same questions as you do, so I had mailed CSM...They told me that they do expect you to have some experiences, but this counts only for the courses without "beginners or introduction" in front of it.. So I have booked an introduction course.. I don't expect them to think that you'll have experience during an introduction course?

the short courses at csm are great! i learned a lot (i took intro to fashion design..16-18)
it was great to have insight from the teacher who oversaw phoebe philo/stella mccartney/matthew williamson's work. she told me loads of info.

does anyone here's studying in CSM and didn't do a foundation before entering the BA courses? (exluding the bussiness sides courses)
it's so expensive to have another year before having the degree... though i know both CSM and westminster said they definitely need a foundation for all students...

just wanna know are there any exceptions...ty

I'm applying too!! I asked them if I could skip foundation since I'll be grauating from Parsons with a 2 year degree this summer, and they told me it's really based on your portfolio. They seriously assess your drawing skills and base your placement on whether you need more time or not.

oh oh. i never heard of a thing like btec...but that's reasonable since i dont live in UK.

i ll apply at the end feb or early march. i dont think my portfolio is great great or "perfect", but i have no choice but to send it in.
i wish i can have an interview >_< it will help me so so much. international students have to send in alot more pieces of work than the local, that's one of the reasons why im freaking out.
