Make it your Own: Jacob Fan

Make it your Own iQ life

Blogger Jacob Fan has made his home at iQ Highbury - keeping him close to the beating heart of London's fashion scene.


"Hi, I’m Jacob, I’m from China, I live in iQ Highbury and I’m a fashion blogger.

I chose iQ because, first of all, the location – the location is really nice, it’s really convenient for me to go to my uni. Definitely, the room is nicely decorated, I really love the decorations inside my room.


Normally I use the lounge for my study because there are large-screen computers, I can write my dissertations there, it’s easy for me to focus and also to play some games with my friends.

Whenever I have a problem the team are always there to help me to solve the problem.

My favourite place for photoshoots is somewhere that’s quiet and there aren’t a lot of people. There’s a park behind this place that’s really nice and a quiet place – I took some photoshoots there, actually.

The team at iQ are really friendly and professional. Whenever I have a problem they are always there to help me to solve the problem. Especially for a new student like me, it makes me feel more relaxed and more comfortable.

I was able to make it my own at iQ by meeting new friends to explore the cities, and also to be in the fashion capital where I got opportunities to meet new industry partners and to explore my capabilities in this area."
