Central Saint Martins

Central Saint Martin's College is a ridiculously well regarded and selective school of art and design in London that has prodcued some serious talent. Alexander McQueen is a former student (Isabella Blow purchased his entire graduation collection), as are Stella McCartney, Hussein Chalayan, Paul Smith and John Galliano.
Knowing the kind of creativity that has emerged from Saint Martin's makes it even more fun to look at the type of designs that are shown during the London Fashion Week show (the participants are the Masters Degree students). Here are some of my favourite looks....I particularly like the stockings with the splattered metallic paint (a quick DIY project?).

The entire show is here.
