Influential Fashion Educators: David Kappo

David Kappo is perhaps the ultimate embodiment of the spirit of St. Martins. He has frequented the halls of the institution since before its merging with Central School of Art and Design, and remains one of the most prominent tutors in the institution as he directs CSM’s Graduate Diploma while lecturing at the Royal College of Art’s MA course. We invited Kappo, dressed extravagantly in floral tunic and bejewelled en masse, for breakfast at Dishoom, to hear how Louise Wilson once saved him from a tranny shop in SoHo and why it’s important to have the courage to wear what you design.

Shadowing The Great

As part of the MA Fashion Communications course in UNIT 1, the three pathways - Fashion Journalism, Fashion Critical Studies and Fashion Communication and Promotion, came together this year for a collaborative project - the Shadowing Project where students essentially "shadow" MA Fashion Design students from the start of their collection until London Fashion Week, where some chosen designers get to showcase their final pieces. With the Central Saint Martins MA Fashion design alumni being arguably the most well known in the world, it sure has made for an interesting project to follow since its conception. We sat down with Roger Tredre, course leader for MA Fashion Journalism to discuss this now legendary project, while showcasing the visual Shadowing project of Gilbert Braun, a student in the FCP pathway who photographed the final work of designer James Theseus Buck.
