"Central Saint Martins is an extraordinary institution where young talents can develop their skills across different fashion disciplines. We are very much looking forward to our collaboration with the college and the students in the years to come"
Ingo Wilts, Chief Brand Officer, HUGO BOSS AG
My work explores how fashion journalism can make the industry more inclusive. The interaction between fashion, art, literature, feminism, mental health and queerness all inform my writing. I am delighted to receive the HUGO BOSS scholarship because it will allow me to make the most of my time at Central Saint Martins and enable me to reach my full potential.
The scholarship makes a huge difference for me and my family… I look at the intersection of fashion with other disciplines – history, politics, literature, film, drama – through the lens of critical theory… in order to find a structure that both gives justice to the cultural heritage of fashion, but that also includes it in the education system. Involving billions of people, the fashion industry influences our life on a daily basis, therefore it is crucial for future generations to be aware of what fashion was, is, and means.
Using photography as my medium I am passionate about exploring familiar and unfamiliar female narratives by subverting the male gaze... I am truly grateful for receiving the Hugo Boss scholarship as it allows me to spend more time realising my projects and thereby make an invaluable difference to my time at Central Saint Martins!
