LDN for London College Fashion College visit

Monday, 1 October 2012



Went to London for the weekend firstly to go visit the London College of fashion as i had booked a place for the open day. If i'm honest I wasn't too happy with the location on at lime grove but the course, Fashion Communication, looked and sounded pretty cool and interesting. But when looking at Universities you need to like every aspect of it. But after spending about 3 hours listening to presentations and looking around the site I went shopping and literally spend all my wages I got like 3 days ago. So i'm pretty depressed about that now as i'm skint but at least I got a birthday outfit, vintage leather jacket and other vintage finds.  
Also I stuffed my face with food from Wasabi, eg Sushi and Chicken Katsu Curry. 

I'm going to visit Northumbria University again this weekend, then Edinbrough then London again to see Central Saint Martins. At the moment i'm most impressed with Northumbria's Fashion Communication Course, but if you know any other universities in the UK that do it let me know!

  5. I go to southampton solent and do fashion promotion, the uni itself has a bad rep but it's actually so good for fashion, you learn a lot of photographic and it skills and it pretty much covers everything around fashion, southampton is not nearly as exciting as london though haha x

  11. I went to look at that same uni on saturday but for a different course, i totally agree on the whole area not being so great but just think your accomadation won't be in that same area so you wont have to live there plus westfield is just round the corner!

  15. Sounds like you're looking at the same course/unis as me! I've looked at Northumbria and I'm really interested in that course, LCF, and I'm going to visit UCLAN to look at their fashion promotion and styling course which seems pretty cool x

  16. I loved northumbria and nottingham trent! They're both really good. I ended up at Nottingham trent (so biggin' that one up), i'm in my 2nd year. Good luck with everything x

  17. I'm studying Fashion Photography at LCF right now and I love it.
    Personally, I find Lime Grove fine and if you stay at the halls (The Costume Store) it's only three stops on the tube. The Costume Store is gorgeous BTW.
    Good luck with your choices.

  18. No way! I can't believe you're looking at LCF too! I'm 17, and an aspiring fashion designer :P Love your style a lot, and btdubs, you don't look 17 at all!

    I have a small fashion blog called THE FASHION WONTON

  19. I wish I'd booked a place for an open day at LCF. I applied and had an interview for the Styling and Photography course there last year, completely unprepared, but it was the only place I applied for anyway and had planned to go back to college for a year. The Lime Grove campus is definitely in an awkward place but Westfields isn't very far which is the only plus really. I'm going to have to start visiting universities, there's so much choice and it must be so much better getting to see it from your own perspective.

  20. I absolutely adore everything you wear! I really value your style because you don't wear what everyone is wearing, you wear things that I would never expect to want to buy but when I see them on you I fall head over feet!
    Such a big inspiration keep it up!
    P.S. - LOVE your Jeffrey Campbell boots!!!

    If you have the time it would mean a great deal to me if you would take a look at my blog - http://hausofleahh.blogspot.com

    Thanks!

  30. UCA epsom do a fashion journalism course, while Nottingham Trent has a course called Fashion communication and promotion which seemed really good. I'm at Southampton Solent doing Writing Fashion and Culture which is mainly journalism but you can diverse into styling, photography, merchandising/buying. Hope this is of some use! x
