All the questions I receive regarding LCF...

Hello everyone! Well I certainly get a plethora of messages regarding my education at London College of Fashion. I thought it would be much simpler to just have a bit of a natter and hopefully cover all your queries…
Yes it’s hard to get into LCF, there’s fierce competition and limited availability of spaces. How do I think I got in? I showed in my portfolio willingness and innovativeness to work with others creatively…networking is a huge thing for the teachers. I also did a year foundation degree in art which they value. However there is no right or wrong, my class was built of people young and mature students…students that had come straight from A level and students that have come from having children. You simply have to ask yourselves what do they want to see…passion and creativity of course. But they also value life skills, anything that makes you individual, I mentioned before that they encourage networking and many projects within the academic year are geared towards intertwining with the other subjects. So if you grew up within a multi racial family own it…had a disability own it, literally anything that you’ve used as a creative flare showcase it. You must simply stand out.

Is it easy to get a job afterwards…if you follow advice and take part in all the opportunities provided I’m sure that you would have built a large enough network base to be self employed after uni, that it employed by an agency. Whatever you decide a degree from LCF ( I have found ) always gets an eyebrow raise as it’s impressive.

Personally I’ve completely fallen out of love with pursuing this lifestyle as a career, my awe of makeup hasn’t faded and I continue to be inspired however I am on a creative journey and other than attempting to secure myself a 1st this year I haven’t thought much beyond that…
