DuPont Biomaterials has announced its sponsorship of the fashion undergraduate BA Fashion Design program at Central Saint Martins (CSM) in London. Renowned for its fashion curriculum, Central Saint Martins is among the best fashion schools worldwide and considered one of the most prestigious, spawning some of the greatest fashion designers in the past few decades. More than 100 students of different pathways related to the apparel industry will receive partially bio-based Sorona® fabrics to create their first fashion design for the school’s annual White Show.
At CSM, students are encouraged to pursue innovative, creative ideas and unconventional thoughts. The White Show gives the students an opportunity to focus on the shapes and silhouettes of their fashion designs, rather than patterns and color. Thus, only white fabrics provided by Sorona will be used for the prototypes of the designs. The project includes each step of the design process, from the first sketch to the sewing of the final prototype and culminating with the organization and execution of the fashion show.
