“A lot of people think that fashion design is just about drawing a set of clothes, making a dress. But no. Studying in this College is where I have gained knowledge, understanding about the fashion industry and having for myself a delicate aesthetic sense. The lecturers have somehow waken up the passion inside of me”.

Graduated from London College for Design and Fashion but life has brought this young 8x boy to the photography career and now, he is very well-known with the nickname of Bobby Nguyen Photographer – The Wizard of Fashion Photography.

"All the knowledge I gained from the college is so valuable. I was taught how to brainstorm ideas, finding my own style and doing research about fashion trends to create my own characteristic and practical designs. I have also learnt to become patient and pay attention to the details."
