The JCA / London Fashion Academy welcomes students from September and aims not only to provide education in the industry, but also to provide the next generation of designers with a skill set to launch their own brand.
In a statement, professor and designer Chu said, “The academy has been planning for years and we are happy to open it in September of this year.
“London is a global fashion hub and has produced many of the world’s most exciting and groundbreaking designers.
“But these designers rarely leave higher education by combining the knowledge, skills and resources needed to successfully create, launch and build a brand on the global stage.
“The academy helps fill these gaps and truly develop an internationally focused, entrepreneurial design talent.”
The institution provides 100 students with the opportunity to learn about design and entrepreneurship at the foundation, undergraduate and graduate levels.
The shoe muse, who was awarded an honorary fellowship by the University of the Arts London in 2009, will experience his role in action.
He told The Times in the UK: “London is still my hometown, so I go in and out. I want to see what they are doing.
“I want to talk to them, not because they want to be famous, but to make sure they come to the academy and study.”
The 72-year-old designer opened his own college, inspired by the children Danny and Emily. “My vision at the academy is to teach design knowledge, but I’m also good at business minds.”
