Fashion icons Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Zac Posen have one thing in common. They graduated from London's Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design.

CSM fashion design womens-wear undergraduate students - Wang Qing, Hu Tianjia, Hu Yingqi and the recently accepted student Qi Sixian - staged a fashion show for about 200 guests at New York City's Hotel Pennsylvania during this year's New York Fashion Week, which ran from Feb 6 to 13.
The biannual event is held in February and September in Manhattan each year and showcases the latest collections of the fashion world. Started in 1943, New York Fashion Week, branded Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in 2009, is one of the major fashion weeks worldwide, along with those in Paris, London and Milan.
"I am so lucky to be doing a show here," says Wang Qing, a freshman at CSM. "A lot of my classmates are super talented but they don't have such a chance."
She says the students were able to present their works because of their design coach Wang Hao's connections.
