    As Central Saint Martins, the prestigious college attended by the likes of Sarah Burton, Stella McCartney and Giles Deacon, showed off its students’ creations during the annual graduatefashion show this week, here are some up and coming designers (already on the scene) that you just have to know about. So, listen up, fashion fans!

    Alexis Barrell
    South African designer Alexis Barrell has been on in-the-know fashion peeps’ radars for a few seasons. With laid back glamorous pieces in gorgeous fabrics and prints, she’s definitely gaining more mainstream momentum now. The American Vogue team were in her showroom at the same time as us. Need we say anymore?

    Claire Barrow
    Super cool painted leather is her thing, with a touch of distressed denim. She epitomises East End cool. And she custom-made a jacket for Rihanna, which is, quite frankly, just awesome.

    Math Collective
    Shahzad Mohaudin originally studied as a graphic designer and he has plenty of graphic lines and shapes in his fashion collections, too. Snapped up by internet mega brand My-Wardrobe, you can be sure his will be a name you’ll hear more of in coming seasons.

    Gabriela Sakate
    She’s a Brazil-based designer who produces clean lines with a sporty edge. Having been featured alongside the likes of Gucci and Dior in The FT’s ‘How to Spend It’ guide, it won’t be long before she has UK stockists fighting for exclusives.

    Eudon Choi
    Amazing separates in bright happy colours are this Korean-born designer’s signature. Originally trained in menswear, these pieces have a very feminine vibe to them, and with celebrity fans such as Sienna Miller and Jade Jagger, you know this brand will be seen at all the cool places this autumn/winter.
