WHERE HAS FASHIONSTEPH BEEN???

Hi there, sorry for the huge delay in updating the blog!
I've been extremely busy lecturing at several universities in the UK over the past week or so, most notably Winchester School of Art, and the University of Westminster.
I spent 3 days at Winchester doing lectures and one to one portfolio reviews with 95 students, across the fashion, textiles and knitwear courses, which was great (lovely place, lovely people!).
The standard of work was good overall, with woven textiles and knitwear being especially strong.  It really surprised me that most students are STILL being told to present their work in totally impractical formats - A1 or even A2!!! Any lecturers reading this - WHY??? It's just not necessary - a waste of board (which I know is hugely expensive!), lots of white space around each piece of work (doesn't add anything to the presentation of the piece), and impossible for students to carry these pieces of work to interviews (anyone tried to get an A1 or A2 portfolio on a bus or tube in London???).
Ahhhh, rant over!
