Central St. Martins's Louise Wilson on today’s fashion students: “They have less skills now though, and I don’t care who hears that — they outsource more. When you talk about people like Lee McQueen or Christopher Kane, they did everything themselves — with no money, they could generate whatever they needed to. But the pressure on the students is greater now. What is expected of a student is beyond human — the MA fashion show is shown during London Fashion Week and is on Style.com. It’s viewed in a professional arena we never had.” [Dazed Digital]
