Hello again, :)

Yes, the London College of Fashion is very well know in England, as is Central St. Martins. However, all fashion courses based around London such as Kingston benefit from their location and situation in London. Entrance onto any fashion course in London is highly competitive due to the esteem in which the courses and locations are held!

Kingston seems to offer equal opportunities to other London based fashion courses, maybe you need to compare the course modules and decide which suit you best? You may find that one is more design based or more practical perhaps. http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergraduate-course/fashion-2012/#modulelist  I found when applying for courses that Kingston offered modules that suited my interests and didn't repeat anything I had studied before, which helped in my final decision. You could always apply for both! Best of luck in deciding, I hope that this has helped!
