Fashion is a game of high-stake numbers in London with hundreds of students graduating from the country’s 20+ fashion colleges each year. Schools like Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion and Royal College have been synonymous with producing some of the world’s most innovative designers, including the late Alexander McQueen, Phoebe Philo, Jimmy Choo and Christopher Bailey. VAGA’s shortlist of the year’s finest reveals their dreams and inspirations as well as their plans of taking the international fashion scene by storm. —Edited by Aida Dolrahim, Photography: Ashley Reynolds, Hair: Anna Cofone, Makeup: Veronika Martinez, Models: Ben @ Models1, Brook @ Select, Sonya & Diedre @ FM Models (left) look by Matthew Miller Malene Oddershede Bach Lauren Greenwood (left to right) paint-splattered blazer, white shirt and trousers Molly McCutcheon, blouse Manuela Dack, blue shorts Holly Skousbo.
