Situated in London's Mayfair, the academy has been established through a shared ambition of professor Choo and the founding team. Delivering a fresh and transformative take on fashion higher education, the academy's courses combine the latest teachings in contemporary design with the entrepreneurial skills required to set-up and drive successful fashion brands of the future.
"Revolutionising higher education, the JCA introduces a ground-breaking incubation model where students will be nurtured as emerging professional designers through a mentored approach and will be provided with a level of access to internationally recognised design leaders unrivalled by traditional colleges and universities," a press release said.
"The academy has been years in planning, so we are delighted to be opening its doors this September," said professor Choo. "London is a global fashion hub and has created many of the world's most exciting and ground-breaking designers. Rarely though do these designers leave higher education armed with the combined knowledge, skills and resources needed to create, launch and build brands successfully on the global stage. The academy will help bridge those gaps and truly nurture internationally-focused and highly entrepreneurial design talent."
The JCA | London Fashion Academy has curated a syllabus inspired by professor Choo's experiences in building his own luxury super-brand as well as the multi-faceted skill sets which fashion designers increasingly need in today's ultra-competitive multi-channel global landscape.
"It is brilliant to see new exciting and innovative institutions expanding the boundaries of higher education as a result of Government reforms," said UK minister of state for universities Michelle Donelan. "It is vital that students gain the practical skills and hands-on experience that employers and industries need and the JCA's revolutionary approach can help students hit the ground running into a successful career."
