Clare Corrigan is a successful British designer and Central Saint Martins fashion alumni, who began her career in the early 1990s in Paris at the French fashion house of Mugler. She interned at Chloe and later worked alongside the German maestro Mr. Karl at Lagerfeld. For the past 10 years Clare’s career has been “a perfect scenario” as she now works with one of the most successful fashion designers – Marc Jacobs, the visionary at Louis Vuitton. Clare had collaborated with Marc Jacobs on his own label’s runway jewelry and hats and his home collections before joining the creative team at Vuitton as Costume Jewelry Designer.

This year Central Saint Martins’ 2nd year Fashion Design and Marketing students had a great opportunity to be tutored by Clare during their last term Tailoring Project, for which students had to produce a full tailored outfit with an impressive research and present it in front of a judging panel of tutors: Felipe Rojas Lianos, CSM MA 2010 grad and successful menswear designer, pattern cutting tutor Jan Bigg-Wither, Heather Sproat – head of FDM course and Clare Corrigan.
1Granary would like to thank Clare Corrigan for an insightful interview where she shares with memories of her own CSM student life, speaks of personal experiences and gives priceless advices to students on how to be ready for the fashion industry in the real world.
