With a reputation for consistently producing some of the most influential players in the field of fashion—Phoebe Philo, John Galliano, Riccardo Tisci, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Grace Wales Bonner to name a few—London fashion college Central Saint Martins has been a crucial source of talent to the fashion industry since it was founded in 1854.
“Fashion at CSM is not just about clothes,” says program director for fashion Hywel Davies. “We aim to be at the heart of the debate about the future of fashion.
We developed our reputation for excellence by supporting students to develop their own individual voice, and by doing this, they find their own authentic narrative.”
Despite the second lockdown in place across England, schools and universities will stay open. So, after months of remote coursework, Zoom tutorials, and pattern cutting on kitchen tables, the fashion students of CSM are finally able to return to their Granary Square HQ in London’s Kings Cross, providing they adhere to safety precautions, of course.

Students of Central Saint Martins displayed what they would wear in the future.
