di ELCS - The English Language Consultancy Service
Milan may be the fashion capital of the world, but it does not have the monopoly on fashion! Vivienne Westwood is a British fashion designer, for example. In London there are some very reputable fashion schools.
One of these is the London College of Fashion, another is Central St. Martins College of Arts and Design, from which Stella McCartney graduated in Fashion Design. They are two of the six institutions that make up the University of the Arts London. Here foreign students can “kill two birds with one stone”: they can learn English in the morning and study some aspect of fashion in the afternoon, like Fashion Design or Fashion Styling.
The most important starting point in Fashion Design is research and experimentation, and during the course students will have plenty of time to experiment and to express their creativity.
The courses are open to anyone with at least a pre-intermediate level of English, and are offered all year round. Students can take up to six different modules.
Another possibility is English Plus Art & Design, where the afternoons are dedicated to painting, life drawing, interior design or similar. Take part in a transcription project where you re-interpret a famous painting – maybe the Mona Lisa with a really big grin or a frown, it’s up to you!
