So, my Grammar school doesn't have fashion or textiles for Sixth form/A-level, they only have Art, photography and product design. My dream Is to become a fashion designer and i just completed my PPE'S (mocks, practice exams) for GCSE (which i took art and product design as my additional subjects. I basically don't know what to do next and i have to choose and apply for other colleges or sixth form. Nearby schools don't have textiles or fashion. Colleges are said to be bad and useless. Colleges are far away. Can anyone give me an idea of what i can do next so i can go to the London University of Fashion Design or a Fashion University.

Assuming you mean central Saint Martins or London College of Fashion (be wary of other London fashion “colleges/universities “ - they’re generally run for profit and don’t have links with the fashion industry) and fashion design then Art A level would probably be best. But you might want to look into taking an art foundation diploma after A levels as a backup.

If you’re edging towards fashion photography then photography would be a better option

If you’re interested in accessories (like the cordwainers course at CSM) then product design would be useful.

Basically if you know you want to go into fashion but aren’t 100% sure which pathway then all three subjects will help prepare you.
