Covington recently announced its support for the highly esteemed MA Fashion course at Central Saint Martins (CSM) in London. CSM has an outstanding reputation for educating fashion students. Successful alumni of CSM include Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Simone Rocha and Roksanda Ilincic. MA Fashion is the only course that has a show on the official London Fashion Week schedule. The course offers four pathways of study: Womenswear, Menswear, Knitwear and Textiles for Fashion.

As part of the relationship, Covington will offer several workshops during the duration of the course with the aim of helping students with the legal and business matters that they are likely to encounter in the fashion industry.

Fabio Piras, the MA Fashion Course Director, said: “I regard our relationship with Covington as a great opportunity to help the MA Fashion course bring our students the initial insight and general awareness they will need as designers entering the industry”.

Louise Nash, partner at Covington and head of Covington’s brands practice that the firm is “absolutely thrilled to be supporting Central Saint Martins and to be working with Fabio and his students to help them develop a better understanding of the business environment brands need to navigate in order to succeed”.
