Hussein Chalayan graduated from Central St Martins in 1994 or it could have been 1993. My memory is a bit muddled. What I distinctly remember is reading about the final show and of the students and then particularily Hussein Chalayan. He had buried his clothes in the garden weeks before the show to see what effect it would have on them being exposed to the earth. Now you might say that that is genious or wacko but he certainly could think outside of the box. Kudos for such fantasy. That created a lot of press and started his career that is still ongoing and strong, with customers like Madonna and Björk. He continues to make clothes and fashion in an entirely personal way.
