“Not every [student-run] magazine can say Nick Knight shot for their second issue, that Alister Mackie contributed to the third, and Willy Vanderperre to the fourth,” said Jorinde Croese, the issue 4 editor of 1 Granary, a publication produced by the students of Central Saint Martins. She’s not wrong.
Since its inception as a blog, the magazine (named after the CSM address in London) has quickly grown both physically (the latest edition is the largest to date, with 648 pages) and in its reach, becoming a global fashion student network, of sorts.
The new issue reaches across the pond to highlight the work of fashion design students from three other major fashion schools around the world (the Royal College of Art, Parsons, and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp’s Fashion Department), speaking to students and professors, as well as industry professionals. “The industry mainstays are present in the magazine to offer advice and guidance to the new generation of creative talent,” Croese explained. “From law, to HR, to magazine publishing, to buying, we aim to give quite an all-around view, which is not just exclusive to our print publication—it also extends to our online platform.”
