apparently applicants applying for creative and design courses have dropped by i think around 16% . some unis affected were UAL(which ive applied for) uni of creative arts and bouremoth art college.does this mean i have more of a chance of getting on to my chosen course?
Secondly when I get really nervous about something I tend to talk really fast , end up saying stupid things (basically embarrassing myself) and getting the wrong words. Iv never had an university interview in my life and nor has any of my family so I cant ask them. I think I’m just scared about the type of questions they will ask me and the fear of the unknown . Im not really a confident peroson and im not the type of person who can be confortable with someone i dont know striaght away.
I just dont want to let my shyness hold me back. I dont want them to think that im not interested in the course or that i don’t have passion for what i am doing.
Im on the verge of having a nervous breakdown with this interview. To make things worse im getting worried about not hearing back from lcf yet. Interviews for one of the course i have applied takes place mid-January to mid- February, while the other course its the last week of February to the first week of March . I still have time i guess, they only contacted me a few days ago about going through applications.
I have been so stressed getting a portfolio together and trying to figure out what im going to do for this project and also finishing off my school projects i’ve hardly had time to relax and chill ughhhhh.
On the other hand i know what im wearing for this interview (well i have 3 options)
Is Celine’s decision to cancel its show to take some pressure off pregnant creative directorPhoebe Philo a sign that LVMH has decided to put designers first in the wake of Galliano’s dismissal and subsequent trial?
“The Celine move marks a conscious decision to choose the designer over possible marketing returns from the runway pictures (front row, celebs, backstage) that benefit brands every season, and is the first time I can remember that an LVMH house has done anything like this,” the FT’sVanessa Friedman said. “Is this a subtle effort to shift the LVMH corporate image from one of big executives putting outsize pressures on designers to one of cuddly-wuddly executives who sympathise with designers? Will it have a domino effect on the industry, as most brands are just waiting for someone else (someone big) to lead the way toward change in what has become an inefficient and unworkable runway schedule? Either way, it’s an opportunity.”
Philo is a designer who has famously put family before work: as the first high-profile female designer to take maternity leave, whilst she was at Chloe - missing a season in 2005, which was then unheard of; before leaving the brand in 2006 to spend time with her new baby.
“We could miss some marketing opportunities, however we do not believe it would represent a significant impact in the scope and term of our project,” Marco Gobbetti, Celine’s chief executive, told the FT. “In the end, all we do is made by people through their talent and skills. It’s all about humans, isn’t it?”
