The first step to a successful career in Fashion is to get really, really good at Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
Fashion Classroom, Inc has you covered with Adobe for Fashion tutorials, classes, digital libraries and assets, informative blogs and a fashion jobs board.
When it’s time to look for a job, they recommend creating online portfolios so you can make your best impression on potential employers.
Here are four websites we recommend for stellar fashion design portfolios:
Krop: Though built with graphic designers, web designers, and photographers in mind, Krop is also a great website for fashion designers to show their chops. Their ready-made, customizable templates take all of the coding work out of building a beautiful online portfolio. All you need to do is choose the template that best suits your designs and upload high quality photos. This portfolio site provides social and SEO tracking tools, a creative resume builder, and can be hosted on your own domain name. As an added bonus, Krop also offers a job board.
Carbonmade: A bright and bubbly portfolio site, Carbonmade also provides professional templates for you to choose from. They highlight the best portfolios from several industries, including fashion design, to provide you with shining examples of what your own portfolio should aim for.
Coroflot: Coroflot bills itself as a place where “design-driven companies recruit a full spectrum of creative talent.” Designed as a hybrid between a job-search site and portfolio hosting platform, signing up for Coroflot gives you access to a professional interface, unlimited storage, and a personal URL. You can hand select which of your projects to highlight through their personalization features. Plus, your portfolio will be easily accessible from any device.
Behance: Behance is free with your Adobe CC subscription and is a great place to showcase your work. Behance is more like a community where you can discover, follow and message other artists, share out your galleries and even post and look for jobs. A fantastic perk for being a CC member.
So there you have it, now showcase your art to the masses with one of these great websites.
