Mission

JCA is a truly distinctive educational institution that delivers luxury brand education through a couture-styled learner centred approach that is focused on professional practice delivered within a specialist boutique incubation environment.

Vision

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.

Practice-led design excellence

Studio practice is the main pedagogy at the Academy and every learner will have access to a dedicated design studio housed with core design facilities. In addition, our newly fitted workshops are equipped with industrial sewing machines, pattern cutting tables, and specialist sampling and fabrication facilities.  Onsite business incubation services assist learners to establish and develop their personal enterprise initiatives. Learners will be supported through portable IT facilities and be able to access specialist texts and journals via our online and physical library.  

STUDENT EXPERIENCE

Staff and Expertise

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.
