Top 100: 99. Louise Wilson

Course director, MA Fashion, Central Saint Martins College

In 2012, Louise Wilson celebrated her 20th year as course director of the prestigious Fashion MA course at Central Saint Martins, where she has taught design talent including Mary Katrantzou, Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders - and was also crowned Fashion Creator of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. Both feared and revered by her graduates, she is famed for her biting remarks and insistence on originality. It’s no surprise that more than 90% of her graduates go straight into employment. If there ever was a gatekeeper for the next generation of fashion talent, Wilson is it.

What she says: “I’m not rude, I’m just honest!”
