Interested applicants are asked to submit an application package tailored to their VCAD fashion program of choice.
Students looking to pursue Fashion Design are required to choose three types of wear to design and draw, placing the illustrated outfits on a figure. They can choose from Women’s Wear, Men’s Wear, Business Wear, Children’s Wear and Sportswear. Applicants also must submit a 250 word essay describing the fabrics they would use, the reasons for selecting them, which demographic their designs target and why.

The cover must reference articles to be found within the magazine, including a profile of a current designer or a manufacturer of environmental friendly clothing.
