It's New Generation Week on and where better to find the stars of tomorrow than at London's top design schools? We headed down to the London College of Fashion to shoot the BA(Hons) Fashion Design graduates. Remember their names!

What made you want to study fashion?
I hated my school uniform, so I wanted to prove a point.

What inspired your FMP?
The ways in which I'd try and change my school uniform, dyeing and braiding my hair was a big part of that, I was probably quite cheeky at school!

Do you think you still need a degree to work in the creative industries?
I think every person is different, for me it was great because I've met some amazing people and it's given me time to develop as a designer, some people might not need that.

What are you doing this weekend?
I'm selling some of my accessories at the event 10 Stories Challenge, I'm hoping to meet a friend for tea in the Dalston Curve Garden too, everyone should visit, it's a hidden gem.

What's the best thing about living in London?
Everyone's a bit mental, never boring. You don't get many mental people in York!

What's next?
I'm hoping to set up as a freelance textiles designer whilst working on an accessories line, and maybe a cheeky holiday in between.
