Fashion Portfolio

A strong portfolio is essential to success in a competitive industry like fashion. Learn to communicate your skills to potential employers, whether your focus is fashion design, illustration, textile design, merchandising, or buying. In this course, you are guided to edit your work—whether it is done for school assignments or for your job—to build a portfolio that accurately tells the story of your talent. You research, edit, and refine your presentation skills in both digital and traditional paper portfolio formats. This class is designed for students preparing a portfolio for college admission or grad school as well as professionals seeking to refresh their portfolios with personal projects using new creative processes. This course is recommended for students in the final semester of certificate requirements or with equivalent experience. Prerequisites: none.
