Yesterday, LVMH brought its Maisons to the College to meet students and share the story of the many collaborations and connections between the two organisations.
Students were invited to meet representatives from 14 LVMH Maisons including Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Celine, Nicholas Kirkwood and J.W. Anderson. The day was filled with presentations and conversations to kick off the next era of the CSM LVMH partnership.
The evening brought the announcement of Carole Collet as the inaugural CSM LVMH Director of Sustainable Innovation as well as a panel discussion between Toni Belloni, LVMH Group Managing Director, Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH EVP Human Resources and Synergies, Professor Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins and Anne Smith, Dean of Academic Programmes at Central Saint Martins.
“Central Saint Martins offers open, safe ground for experimentation and disruption. LVMH brings an embedded set of knowledge and experience of how you turn innovation into a reality. This is an amazing opportunity for these two organisations to engage with issues of innovation and sustainability.”
Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins
