Who is Eduardo Costa and to whom is this course destined to?
Graduated in fashion design at Istituto Marangoni, I have been working with fashion since 2014. In 2018, I took the “fashion folio” course at Central Saint Martins, an intensive and one-year course, knowledge which I apply in this course through different dynamics . I am currently editor of Fashion's New Order magazine, specializing in the search for young fashion talents, especially students and recent graduates, having even contributed to Vogue Talents. Many of the talents promoted on our page, today compete in important awards such as Hyères and LVMH prize. I've worked as an art director, stylist and design consultant for the past 3 years, with a special focus on recent graduates.
This course is applicable for students who want to improve their portfolio for applying selection processes at international universities (both BA and MA) or simply because they want to improve their portfolio for applying for jobs in companies such as Alexander McQueen or Mary Katrantzou.
Whats the course method?
In this course, several techniques are applied to create an international fashion portfolio from scratch. Any previous experience is welcome, but you'll learn the creative process in it's complete form.
A reasonable knowledge / practice of fashion illustration and fashion drawing is required to support this creative development. Basic knowledge of construction and the creative process is welcome, but not completely necessary. At the end of this course, you will have a complete fashion project for international application and development.
