OUR STAFF TO GUIDE, INSPIRE AND CHAMPION YOU

Full of specialist knowledge, insight and experience, many of our teachers still work, research or consult within the fashion industry, so their expertise has a relevant, contemporary edge. We also have a programme of inspiring guest lecturers who bring invaluable perspectives from every aspect of the fashion world.
