What does a fashion design portfolio entail?

I am going on an interview for a fashion designer position. They are asking for me to bring a few articles of clothing
that best showcase your work as a designer as well as a portfolio. I graduated last year from fashion design school
and made gowns, jackets, etc. for school projects that I'm very proud of, but I don't make them for work now (I
started my own Tshirt line since school so there's not as much creativity there). And my only portfolio is of my
school sketches which are terrible since I was just learning to draw. I'm a much better as sketching and illustration
now but I don't have anything I've drawn recently. What should I bring to show them? Should I whip up a portfolio
of hand drawn illustrations of ideas of garments I would design? Would these illustrations be enough for the
portfolio?
Pearl Academy of Fashion Graduates Showcase Their Final Collections at PORTFOLIO ‘09
This summer, gear up for some super-cool trends by Pearl Academy of Fashion graduates. Portfolio, which in
the past has launched quite a few of the best known names in fashion industry, again saw talented debutants
showcasing their forward-looking brilliant collections.
Gopal K. Pillai, Commerce Secretary, Govt. of India and Ms. Ritu Kumar, the well-known Fashion Designer
presented the graduating students with awards in various categories.
Portfolio ‘09 was a huge success with the ramp sizzling with designer outfits worn by some of the better known
models like Sonalika Sahay, Amanpreet Wahi, Krishna Somani, and Tina Chatwal of Wills Lifestyle India fashion
week fame, Barkha Kaul, Jayashree Tahiliani, Sahiba Singh- Femina Miss India personality, among many others.
The fantastic collections were based on themes like Anger (Krodh), Re-orienting Fashion, Hypnosis, Awadh-city of
Nawabs, Life’s Corona to mention a few.
Overall 54 collections were displayed on the ramp, with women’s wear having a slight edge in
numbers over men’s wear. Every collection had a unique inspirational background varying from
nomadic banjaran of kutch, Delhi’s multi ethnicity, modern architecture, green leaves, geometric
abstractions to magic of meditations. The students experimented with technology, non-conventional
material, color palettes, silhouettes, surface texturing and fabrics in their collections. AWARD
