Alexander McQueen, one of Britain’s most successful designers, enrolled at Central Saint Martins, and received his MA in Fashion Design in 1992. The collection he produced as the culminating project of his degree was famously bought in its entirety. He earned the British Fashion Council’s British Designer of the Year award four times, and was named Commander of the Order of the British Empire. His bold styles and fascinating shows inspired and wowed the world of fashion, and his legacy lives on.
The award will cover full tuition fees, with a contribution towards living costs and the final collection.
