>> Hamish Bowles Is a Former Fashion Show Crasher —In the Guardian's weekend article highlighting Central Saint Martins' Louise Wilson — who is responsible for cultivating talents like Gareth Pugh and Christopher Kane — Hamish Bowles recalls his time at the school: "When I started, John Galliano was in his graduating year, and he had an incredibly potent effect on myself and all my contemporaries. The denizens of the fashion department always had, I'd say, something of a superior attitude. It was also a great time for clubs. Cha Cha's was there; Leigh Bowery was emerging on the scene. Saint Martins students were heavily involved in that. You'd stay up all night creating the latest look for Taboo, not eat for days, then have a cake at Patisserie Valerie. You'd go to Paris Fashion Week and see how many shows you could get into. Pretend to be the make-up artist. That was actually a class project!" [Guardian]
