GET SCHOOLED: Sew Be It Studio - Upcoming Classes

We are introducing a whole new program. For those who are looking at applying to Fashion School, you don't want to miss this.

Fashion School Application Seminars

Four, two-hour seminars and workshops to help you prepare your application to fashion schools.

In this course we will be covering:

  • Cover letter writing, resumes, portfolio basics, professional etiquette at interviews & over the phone, choosing work to present and application criterion.
  • Drawing presentation (colour, views, information, what makes a "good" drawing).
  • Design critique: bring in your drawings and designs for critique and advice.
  • Portfolio styles and presentation. Photography for fashion.
  • Portfolio planning: plan your portfolio with expert guidance.
  • The interview and application process
You also get the chance to practice your interview and get final advice before the big day.
