How does it feel being the Principal of such a prestigious College, in a position of huge responsibility?

I feel privileged to be at the helm of one of the world’s leading fashion colleges. It is a position of great responsibility and also influence, which I believe should be used to bring about innovation and change in the industry and in fashion education.

Which are those new courses that are gaining importance among students, world-wide? Please describe.

Our new Executive MBA in Fashion is the first of its kind in the world. This course will help to develop talented people in the fashion industry, and provide them with the skills, which will be invaluable to those individuals and the industry as a whole. Creative Direction is a very ‘niche’ area of the process of fashion promotion, which is proving hugely popular with students from all backgrounds and from around the world, which is borne out of a ‘need’ for this type of future creative director within the industry. All of our ‘Integrated Masters’ postgraduate courses are also proving popular as they allow students the opportunity to gain a higher qualification, and one year’s industrial placement. These courses also have ‘global’ outlook, which is important in today’s job market (such as the MSc International Fashion Management and MDes International Fashion Production Management.
