A “virtual portfolio” of your work (include as many of the following as apply):
a) photos of at least three but no more than ten of your completed designs (preferably shown on a model or dress form), marked with their dates of completion; include front, side, and back views; show a variety of looks for both day and evening if you have them.
b) images of detail work (e.g. beading, ruching, pleating, knitting, crochet) that you have produced, if applicable.
c) images of your patterns if you work from them; some should be for the outfits pictured.
d) images of your sketches.
A 3- to 5-minute personal video clearly labeled “Home video”, on mini-DV or DVD or as a media file with one of the following extensions: .mov, .mpv, .avi, .wmv, .dv. No other formats will be accepted. Your video should consist of the following: a personal introduction, telling us who you are and giving us an overview of your life; a summary of your design goals and achievements; why you need “Project Runway” to achieve your goals; and anything else you think
we need to know. Relax, have fun, and let your personality shine through.
