A new initiative in 2024 is to promote several featured current UAL fashion (MA Womenswear, Graduate Diploma etc.), art (Graduate Diploma Fine Art) & design students collectively in a capsule Saint Martins Collection.
Saint Martins Collection features current CSM post-graduate womenswear and menswear designers:

Between A and B Collection 'focuses on the unique attractiveness that resides in the imperfections of the process of evolution.'
HUMANS Collection 'highlights the experience of Thai transwomen in challenging societal norms while drawing inspiration from traditional culture and resilience within the LGBTQ community in using secondhand men's garments to symbolise adaptation.'
Successful CSM talented alumni include Alexander McQueen men's knitwear designer Po Chieh Chiu, 2017 Graduate Fashion Week Swarovski International Catwalk Competition winner: pochiehchiu.wixsite.com/po-c-c/press (when Sibu opened for UEL).
