On the first day they were breaking us down to basics, so we were collaging onto A3 models using geometric shapes. The basic rule was not to make it look like a garment, because originally someone must have invented trousers so why should you just copy that? We stuck them all over the wall, and they looked so cool together.
Honestly if you are considering studying art or fashion I would really recommend a short course, it doesn't have to be at CSM but I got some great portfolio and applications info from them. There were 20 people on my course, including some french girls, a swiss boy, an american girl and a Japanese boy- lots had come over especially for the course! Everyone was lovely and it was just such an enjoyable experience, I feel that i'm much better prepared for apply to uni now and can't wait to finish school to be honest!
There will be a Royal Wedding post to come soon, I loved it!
