Fashion can be an absolute bloodsport. The well-dressed Londoner will need to battle their way through high-end sample sales (or maybe just the wilds of Primark) for the cutest clothing gems, will leave their bank accounts bruised, broken and penniless in the name of this season’s hottest styles, and will have to one-up the thousands of other fashionistas roaming these metropolitan streets with similar visions of fashion grandeur. Here at UAL, it’s our job to be creative — after all, why else would you come to art school? — and our student body does it pretty well. From Camberwell to CSM, Wimbledon to Chelsea, LCC to all the LCF campuses scattered throughout LDN, we’ve got some fit fashion warriors at our uni and it’s time they get a shout.
This week’s fashionista hails from CSM – fitting, since just last week HuffPo called their students “intimidatingly cool.” Meet Angie Kang, BA Fashion Communication: Fashion History and Theory track, as well as a fairly recent transplant from Los Angeles, California. Kang met us in Hoxton for a quick Q&A about how she breaks the rules, keeps her clothes cool, and the wild style change she’s got planned later this week
