CSM has a reputation for cultivating some of the most prestigious and exciting names in fashion. From Alexander McQueen and Christopher Kane to Marques' Almeida and Simone Rocha, these are just some of the well known talents that kick-started their careers at CSM. Live streaming at 3pm GMT today, we can't wait to see what the fresh, young designers have in store for their 2016 show, representing the future of fashion.
It is also the last year for Central Saint Martin's BA fashion director Willie Walters, who joined Central Saint Martins in 1992 as leader of Womenswear. "After twenty-four years at Central Saint Martins (18 years as Course Director of BA Fashion) I have decided that it is time to move on to the next phase of my life and I will be leaving at the end of this academic year. I feel honoured to have worked with the extraordinarily talented and dedicated students who come to Central Saint Martins from all corners of the globe and also the brilliant and energetic staff team. Anyone who works in Higher Education in Art and Design today will recognise that the work is extremely demanding but also thrilling, beyond rewarding and fun!" Walters shared.
