100 Professor Louise Wilson ***New***

Course director, MA Fashion, Central Saint Martins College 

If you couldn’t find a crystal ball to predict fashion’s future stars, sitting in one of Louise Wilson’s classes would be just as good (or even better). Nine out of 10 of her students, which have included Alexander McQueen, Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou, either go on to start their own label or are recruited by a top fashion house. But in an industry often thought of as lovey-lovey, Wilson doesn’t suffer fools gladly and is as outspoken as she is brilliant.

What she says… “Lazy fuckers”, when describing some of her students.
