Central Saint Martins College paid tribute to former student Alexander McQueen at its masters degree graduate show at London Fashion Week on Sunday.
The London fashion college from which McQueen graduated in 1992, remembered the designer who committed suicide earlier this month, by opening the show with an audio recording of an interview in which he talked about his time at Central Saint Martins.
In the interview, McQueen said: “I actually went there to teach pattern cutting, and ended up doing the master’s degree. I only had one O-level in art so it was quite cool.”
He added: “But what I liked about it was the freedom of expression and being surrounded by like-minded people… it showed me there were other people out there like me.”
Central Saint Martins’ masters graduate show, which took place at Somerset House on Sunday, included collections from 22 designers.
