Having garnered a global reputation for pushing the boundaries of fashion, a degree from CSM culminates in the highly anticipated press show, which is a platform for CSM’s brightest stars to shine. South African born Drew Henry, whose graphic minimalist collection has earned him a best in class at 2012 Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
Henry was raised in coal-mining towns before settling in Johannesburg at the age of 17, when he studied at a technical fashion school specialising in commercial pattern cutting and sewing. There, he excelled and quickly rose to the top of his class, setting his long-term sights on London.
I try to steer clear of fashion but am always proud to promote an African in diaspora making his mark. Drew Henry is definitely a talent to watch out for.
