If you're wanting to study fashion, be it design, business, make-up, styling or journalism, this is certainly the college to opt for. It is one of the most reputable, and many of the established designers and fashion experts have learnt their craft here.
I studied two part time courses in both the John Princes Street and Davies Street colleges and absolutely loved them. The teachers know the industry inside out and their expertise comes from actively working in fashion so you can be assured that you are learning from the best.
There is an amazingly addictive creative buzz as everyone is immensely enthusiastic about what they do and you truly learn the meaning of the phrase 'passion for fashion'! The facilities are great, including top range and current IT equipment and an extensive resource library at John Princes Street. The college also often holds industry led conferences and seminars.
I also predict that the people who attend the London College of Fashion are the most colourful - you are sure to see an amazing selection of obscure (yet fashionable as hell) outfits and hair cuts!
I am studying my postgraduate course here at the moment and it is so brilliant. Apart from the course and the teaching (both are fantastic) the school itself is brilliant. On the Princes street campus there is the best library I've ever come across, and they have a great selection of computers with loads of great software programs installed in both Princes and Davies street.
The Hub in Davies st is the bar/cafe and does really cheap food and drink. I usually go for a bagel with cheese, chicken and pesto which costs £1.70, total bargain. Just outside the Hub is The Arts Gallery, University of the Arts London, 65 Davies Street, W1K 5DA. Here they have loads of different exhibitions of up and coming artists which is free for all UAL students.
As a current student in this Uni and I can fully recommend this college. Imagine having professors that know the fashion industry inside and out, lot's of interesting projects and industry contacts and also every now and then some famous designer keeping a lecture. Not too bad?
The library is great with endless selection of fashion and clothing industry related books and magazines, and with a roof terrace with view over Oxford Street.
For the fashion design students the studio premises may not be the spaciest ones as in central London office space can be a bit tight, but on the other hand the Oxford Circus location is pretty great.
