You will be taught by our mentors at our flagship London Fashion Academy located in the heart Mayfair; a prestigious address just a stone’s throw from the city’s most iconic high-fashion emporia.
Our mentors have specialist knowledge and a wealth of experience between them, many of them practicing designers and consult within the fashion industry.
JCA’s vision is simple and elegant; we want to enable and facilitate the next wave of Fashion Designers to harness their imagination, develop and hone their creative craft, and to inspire others around them with their personal contribution to cultural and economic impact.
A nurturing, stimulating environment is vital to the creative process. That means lively lectures, interactive learning and an inspiring place to study.
As a student of JCA, you will join a community of professional practice in which the learner is supported through a range of curricular and extra curricular opportunities.
The Academy is run by fashion professionals, not simply academic teachers, and it is highly focused on professional excellence. Our staff are among the best in their field, professionally within fashion, and pedagogically within education. They are friendly and approachable people who work together to help create a professionally focused learning community that brings together and inculcates students, staff, and associates from the wider fashion industry.STAFF AND EXPERTISE
