Central Saint Martins’ students sketch end up on the Alexander McQueen catwalk

Central Saint Martins’ MA Fashion students collaborated on a sketch that
became a garment in Alexander McQueen’s SS20 collection. When the McQueen
flagship opened in London, MA Fashion Womenswear Pathway tutor, Julie
Verhoeven, brought students to its archive and exhibition space to
experience a drawing class in situ. The students gathered around to sketch
an Ophelia dress and interacted with Verhoeven’s exercises. She challenged
them to work in different ways, taping charcoal to the ends of
paintbrushes, working with their non-dominant hand or sketching across each
other’s pages.

The McQueen team transformed the students’ collective sketch into an
embroidered garment for its SS20 collection. Vogue shared the story of the
particular dress with Sarah Burton, BA Fashion alum and Creative Director
of Alexander McQueen, outlining the process to transform sketches into the
finished garment.
