Tod’s Academy to present its first CSM student designs at February’s LFW
Tod’s has announced plans to present the first fruits of its Tod’s Academy project linking up with students from Central Saint Martins during London Fashion Week in February.
A total of 33 young designers, selected by Central Saint Martins, have been busy working on their own interpretations of one or more of Tod's codes, which they will unveil in two months during the UK season.
The concept, which was conceived by Tod’s chairman and controlling shareholder Diego Della Valle and coordinated by Fabio Piras, course director of Central St. Martins MA Fashion Course, will be presented in a digital exhibition.
“Growing up in such a unique time, our new generation of creatives must be supported and promoted. In this spirit, Tod's announces the collaboration… a special project in which young creativity dialogues with Tod's values and expresses itself totally freely,” the Italian luxury marque explained in a release.
As part of the process, each participant was assigned a “fashion master,” from a selection of international editors, journalists and designers to help and enrich the students. So, February will also reveal how these mentors have performed.
