BUILD A FASHION PORTFOLIO THAT EXCEEDS FUTURE EMPLOYER'S EXPECTATIONS AND WINS YOU THE JOB!
WHAT WILL FUTURE EMPLOYERS EXPECT TO SEE IN DESIGNERS' FASHION PORTFOLIOS
It saddens me to see many freelance fashion designers that have had to change their status to "actively seeking", due to the devastating impact of Covid 19 on our industry.
It will be more important than ever for designers to ensure their creative portfolios are fresh, relevant and stand out amongst fierce completion and less opportunity.
Brands will expect you to demonstrate that a) you understand their design aesthetic, b) you are up to date on trends and c) you know the design process.
DEMONSTRATE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR DESIGN AESTHETIC
Demonstrating an understanding of brand's design aesthetic should be clear by the work included in your digital portfolios. If your work covers the same general category and also incorporates something that speaks directly to them, that will be enough to win you an interview.
SHOW YOU ARE EXPLORING THE SAME TRENDS AS THEY ARE
Update your portfolio to show them you are looking at the same trends as they are. Catch their attention with one or two key areas and it will tell them you understand their market, customer and that you are the right designer for the job!
Demonstrate also that you understand the design process by adding mood boards, detailed flat sketches and collection building. Access to trend subscription sites is expensive and out of reach for many designers.
We have created a library of affordable, informative trend reports that will give you instant inspiration and confirmation.
