The article presents considerations in preparing a portfolio for textile design presentation. It is an assurance that the process of presentation is not complicated but demands great dedication and good planning. It is suggested that a designer should be able to show about 20 designs in one presentation but should give consideration to their various types and genre. A designer may present these designs with unrelated genre but should know how to include few pieces with coordinates. Moreover, the most helpful thing is to create a balance between colors, sizes, and designs.
