CarrieMe takes its hat off to Stella McCartney, who having just received her Honorary Fellowship from the University of Arts London, announced she will be funding a fashion scholarship for exceptional MA students at Central Saint Martins (CSM) - and as London is such a cosmopolitan city, its open to all nationalities, yeeeehhh!
As a 1995 CSM graduate, she describes her experience there as "life changing" - yet with UK university tuition fees going up dramatically, many young creative talents are unable to access it, so Stella is doing more than just talking about nurturing creative talent in Britain, she's literally putting her money where her mouth is... and is encouraging other fashion houses to do the same.
More good news - the scholarship opportunity also includes a 1 year paid placement working at the Stella McCartney House - now that really is exciting, wish I could turn the clock back and apply to CSM course next year!
With such illustrious fellow CSM graduates as Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo and Christopher Kane, who will be the next to wow us?
