The list of achievements within the 18 months of opening its inaugural Mayfair campus are impressive and undoubtedly hard to follow, with Faculty that include international royalty to acclaimed designers who balance academic careers alongside their professional practice.  Indeed, it was out of great interest and curiosity that Queen Camilla chose to visit the Academy in 2023 and to find out more.

With its flagship campus based in the heart of London’s prestigious Mayfair, the Academy seeks to find, support and launch entrepreneurial fashion designers through an intimate, learner-centred approach that is focused on professional practice delivered within a specialist incubation environment.

The Academy offers both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in a range of practice-based fashion design and entrepreneurship programmes that allow learners to pursue a very high degree of specialism.

Our academic staff are the best in their field, professionally within fashion, and pedagogically within education. They are also friendly and approachable people. People who want to work with other, similar minded, people – and together, to create a professionally focused learning community.

Lecturers are employed as ‘Mentors’ and deliver more than taught sessions; they interact, engage, and participate with learners and guide the learning journey. They excite, provocate and disrupt ways of thinking. They support, protect and inculcate excellence. However, most of all, they motivate, encourage and inspire.

Being an aspiring Designer at the Academy is much more than being a student it is about setting a direction and being mentored on that journey – from campus to beyond.
