Central Saint Martins has been cranking out fashion superstars-to-be for less than 20 years and it seems there’s no stopping their students from making big waves in the Fashion world. Last Thursday, the upstarts had their chance to show their shine on the catwalks of the BA (Hons) graduate fashion show.
Pei-Ru Keh reports:
The 42 graduating students could clearly be divided into three categories: the good, the really good and the mediocre. The good included Kyoko Fukui who turned out beautifully knit dresses that boasted all the structure and detail not usually associated with knitwear. Also impressive was Kristin Yeung with an elegant collection that combined loose, languid pleating with tuxedo-inspired features to evoke a modern day Miss Haversham. The more mediocre collections spanned anything from ill-fitting trousers and overly busy prints, to t-shirts and leggings (seriously?) and an undulating, zipper-border technique that was obviously taught in a class and taken on board by too many students for my liking.
