Central Saint Martins showcased its BA Graduate Collection this week, with a group of emerging designers catching our eyes.

Central Saint Martins, the renowned fashion school known for its creativity and ability to nurture some of the most influential designers in the world presented its highly anticipated class of 2024 graduate show this week and here is what we loved.


Though it was all very hush-hush, it was for good reason. Seeing their designs grace the runway in person and online filled us with such excitement, and boy was it worth the wait. These CSM designers gave it everything they had, from extravagant haute couture to ready-to-wear, day-to-day looks, we saw it all.


A testament to the exceptional skills and visionary approaches of CSM’s graduates who’ll go on to contribute a wealth of creativity to the industry, the Central Saint Martins BAFCSM24 Graduate Collection showcased yet again the rich variety of talent Saint Martins continues to produce and inspire each and every year, with designers pushing the boundaries of creativity and craftsmanship. From Gory Harrison’s avant-garde silhouettes to Alina Ispas’ artisanal crochet pieces, the collections were both innovative and inspiring, here’s five outstanding designers we loved from the show and what we gathered from their collections.


After being praised by the likes of Connor Ives and Masha Popover, Gory Harrison produced some exquisitely crafted garments with low, drooping waists and accentuating shoulder silhouettes, the looks were finished off with apparent nails seen through the stilettos as the models graced the catwalk.


Labelling herself on social media as the “crochet granny,” the ancient form of artisanal design runs strongly throughout the creative’s work. Her showstopper, a robe made up of silver chromatic squares chequering its entirety which read “Here to Steal Your Jobs’ turned heads, alongside Alina Ispas’ other look, a black leather jacket comprised of individual coin purses. Each purse held a flower, a motif seen throughout the creative’s work. Held by some models and incorporated within the designs the floral theme gave the collection an almost fairytale-like ambience. Models were seen carrying luggage down the runway as if jetting off on their summer holidays.


Natural formations take a primary inspiration in the work of Saint Martins’ graduate designer Patrick Garvey’s work. His collection, “CRYSTALS AS A NEW FORM OF SPIRITUALITY,” evoked imagery of catholicism and included pastel-coloured knitwear garments. Patrick Garvey eventually went on to win the L’Oréal Pro Award everyone dreams of all thanks to his fantastic designs.


Macy Lily Grimshaw‘s debut look was comprised of a sheepskin leather moulded coat, with a ‘poster appliqué’, displaying an almost walking illustration, painted, onto a leather/paper canvas. Scrunched and unfolded the look still served beauty and with a striking red heel to complement the browns of the garment, the look was pulled together.


A creative force to be reckoned with, Nodira Studios pulled off elaborate, alien-like garments which glided down the runway in all of their iridescent glamour. In an almost homage to Iris-Van-Herpen, the similar designs were eye-catching and most definitely show-stopping, to say the least. Grand and rich in creativity, Nodira Studios won second runner-up for the coveted L’Oréal Pro Prize 2024.
