Fashion Portfolio Preparation (16-18 Year Olds)
Introducing you to what's involved in building a fashion portfolio, particularly if you want to continue your studies in fashion.
You'll work on a set portfolio project involving visits to libraries and museums to collect research. This will form the basis for an individual project, creating design work and presentation boards. You'll also get a flavour of the teaching and learning environment at London College of Fashion.
Beginners. You should have an interest in the subject area and a desire to learn but no previous experience is required.
Your course place is confirmed once you have booked online or via the phone using a credit or debit card. There is no deadline for booking. Places are offered on a first come, first served basis, and all courses have a maximum number of students. We suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.
