Make me commerical
Julia is 19, from Paris and a year one student at Wimbeldon College of Arts studying costume interpretation, she showcased in Los Angeles and even wore her own looks on the catwalk, like many of our creatives do.
Her trousers were a stand out piece, They seemed like the perfect red carpet alternative to a gown.
The future of fashion as nurtured it's students over the years in so many ways.
We have seen our students through thick and thin.
Some of them started with us at age 12 and now they are in higher fashion education in the top colleges in the world, including Saint Martin's, Fidm and LCF.
Our students have been signed up to top model agencies, scouted for project runway, featured in Vogue countless times, appeared on CNN, on the BBC, on top radio shows in the UK and Los Angeles.
Our events act as platforms for our students and members, they get to socialise with industry people that normally they might not get in front of, including stylists, buyers top photographers etc but now we are branching out big time.
Our founder self funds so much of the academy projects and events, she insists on small classes and high profile tutors, so everyone gets the best experience possible.
Every decision she makes on behalf of the academy is not about making money, it's her passion to provide a spring board for the next generation of fashionistas.
Recently she decided to offer the ultimate gift to her students which is giving them the chance to produce garments to sell.
This incentive we named 'make me commercial' and it does exactly That, we take an outfit concept made by one of our student's make it professionally and produce it under our label but it's the students name for future of fashion and every single penny of profit goes to that pupil.
One in every 25 students a design is choose n and made commercially. Selected on uniqueness with wearability factored so we can sell volumes.
No restrictions on age of student, doesn't matter if it's ladies wear, men's or children's.
Our first student select showcased in Los Angeles Easter 2018.
