London is the city where gifted young designers from all around the world come to succeed. When Zaha Hadid left Baghdad to learn how to be an architect, she chose the Architectural Association School
in London. Roksanda Illincic knew she could not become a world class fashion designer in her native Belgrade, so she chose to study at Central Saint Martins
, the school that has also produced Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Christopher Kane.
