M.A. (RCA) Fashion Design, Royal College of Art, United Kingdom
Jason Steel gained a first class (hons) degree from Northumbria University, UK, where he specialized in menswear and textile design. On graduating he was invited to attend the Royal College of Art, London, and awarded the Diana, Princess of Wales scholarship- this was due to his strength of vision and commitment, something he encourages students to explore in their own work. Jason has taught at leading UK universities and internationally in S. E. Asia, with a number of his students having won important awards, including Best Collection at Graduate Fashion Week, London. This is due to understanding who they are as designers and this comes from playing with ideas and working hard for a dynamic future. When not teaching, Jason likes nothing better than the cold weather of his native Yorkshire, dog walking and gardening.
