Many of the colleges in the University of the Arts London's stable teach practical skills to enable students' creativity to find viable outlets in the commercial world. In the second installment of our UAL series, we visit the London College of Fashion to talk to Ekaterina Gerasimova about her final collection, which is inspired by identity. We then head to Elephant and Castle to discover the multi-faceted nature of the Surface Design course at London College of Communication with final year student Joanna Bagge and her gemstone-inspired prints. www.arts.ac.uk
