Michaela Anne Persichini who is an American student and she used to study Fashion Design in the USA. However, she didn’t really find the previous program suitable for her.

Looking back, Michaela still thought it was a very bold decision of a young person but she is now very happy studying at the college: “Here I’m learning a lot about creativity and getting insights into fashion. The lecturers understand and know their students because of the small number of students in a classroom. All of the students get careful considerations from the lecturers and progress quickly on each course unit.”
Besides Vietnamese students, there are a number of international students studying at LCDF-Hanoi.
Ms. Laura Ann Hardingham - Program Leader in Fashion & Textiles emphasized that: “The uniqueness in our training program is that we equip the students with the holistic understanding about the whole progress of the fashion industry from idea development to production and marketing.” This could be the reason why so many international and Vietnamese students choose London College for Design and Fashion - Hanoi to be the place for them to achieve their dreams.
