Since its establishment in 1989, London-based university Central Saint Martins has birthed, mentored, and nurtured the industry’s finest talent. From Stella McCartney to Lee Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, Central Martins is a fashion playground that is not to be reckoned with.

Last night, 40 students took over Central Saint Martins’ academic grounds to present their final collections and cement their emerging design language for years to come. While dozens of graduates from BA Fashion Womenswear, Menswear, Design and Marketing, Knit, and Print showcased six strong looks, a handful battled for monetary prizes to ignite their careers outside of university. From the Sarabande Award to the Models1 Scholarship and the signature L’Oréal Professional Award, the students showcased their final collections to industry insiders and peers — but five stood out among the crowd.

BA Fashion Menswear designer Hamish Olrik-Small was the third student to storm the runway, delivering an impactful collection with bold silhouettes and preppy undertones. Sequinned shorts shined under the spotlight paired with a loosened button-down shirt and necktie-inspired side bag, while armless outerwear and pop-collared bomber jackets were pulled from mystical lands.

Graduate Jack Lambert set himself apart from his peers, delivering “SCUM”-embellished knitwear, Ferrari-inspired aprons, and glistening trench coats pinned with championship ribbons. Elsewhere, Lulu Yang ignited a womenswear rebellion with wearable arts-and-crafts masterpieces, while Yoonji Kim referenced Rei Kawakubo through ribbon-tied, larger-than-life marvels. Finally, Fashion Design and Marketing graduate Taehun Kim made moves in menswear with apocalyptic utility. Grooved imprints and coiled figures grew from oversized puffer jackets and zippered bottoms, seeing eerie hoods conceal models’ faces sprouting from intergalactic outerwear with a life of their own.

Take a closer look at the five best collections from Central Saint Martins’ BA Graduate Show 2024 in the gallery above.
