    About Us
    With over 50 years combined experience, we know all about fashion! We inspire and promote enquiring young minds for the diversity of the fashion future and provide students with an insider’s view into the current fashion industry – it’s what we do best.

    Caroline, the school director, is a mother herself and understands the importance of student safety - all of our teaching staff have current DBS certificates and keep a friendly eye on the students’ wellbeing. We’re also first aid trained and experienced with various medical conditions and disabilities/children requiring special adjustments.

    Just off King’s Road, Chelsea in the delightful Lightfoot Hall, with great views across London. If you decide to board with us, the hall is protected with an on-site 24 hour security team and is a friendly, relaxed environment with two large common rooms - so you’ll always be able to find somewhere for a chat or a quiet area to research and develop your designs. There’s also delicious home cooked food freshly prepared daily.
