CSM: BA Fashion Show 2013

The Central Saint Martin's BA Fashion Press Show has to be one of the most anticipated shows that I've ever been to. With previous alumni including Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen there is a chance you might just find yourself in the presence of the next big thing to emerge from CSM. The show consisted of 40 carefully chosen students (whittled down from a massive 124) and here are just a few of my favourites!

The Show culminated with two previous alumni awarding the three winners of the evening - the amazing Giles Deacon and Phoebe Philo (I dream of owning a Céline bag!). The third runner up of the evening was Giacomo Cavallari who had beautiful tailoring with blocked colour detailing - right down to cut away detail on the shoes.
Second prize went to Narae Park whose designs featured reclaimed industrial tarpaulin. Park's models had water bottles on the shoes which made the most satisfying noise when the models walked down the runway (crunch crunch crunch). NaraePark1 copy

First Prize, the coveted L'Oreal Professional Award went to Mao Usami whose collection featured long sports socks which trailed in front of the models. The Casual-sports wear collection featured plenty of layers, stripes and checks and a huge fluffy teddybear jumper.

maousami It was a fantastic show to watch and just a glimpse of the exciting hub of creativity that exists at CSM and in all the other fashion institutions across the country. I certainly felt lucky to have been at the show as it was pretty inspiring and an awesome way to spend an evening in London!
