As soon as I saw the Fashion Retail Academy, I knew this was the place I needed to go! Everyone on my course is really friendly. We all help each other out and we’re like a big family. Being in the heart of London is so buzzy.

Cameron - Level 3 Fashion Design

"The Fashion Retail Academy provides the best environment for students who want to work in the fashion industry. The teachers are so caring. They’re always there to help with your work, or just to chat if you’re having a bad day. I wouldn’t be where I am if it wasn’t for the FRA. The best decision I ever made was coming here!"
