Here's a preview of three designers focusing on menswear from the Central Saint Martins Final Year BA show 2009. With five designers across menswear, womenswear and printing, Digital Dazed will bring you backstage photographs and interviews from the press show.

Holly Fox-Lee
"Wearing a mask on the body, was the core challenge of my collection. I was inspired by krump dancing and the Ndebele tribe amongst others; to create a synthesis of modernity and ancient craft work. Exaggerated sportswear silhouettes and vibrant colour ways represent the fusion of the African and the American."

Morten Ivar
"My collection is inspired by early punk rock with the main focus throughout my research being the many different styles that go with the punk rock image; from tailored jackets to leather pants and sneakers. I have, with my mix of prints, colours and styles tried to capture the spontaneous effect."

Anthony Thomas
"Four songs that communicate a common mood of mystery have provided the spark of inspiration for this collection: Porno for Pyros’s ’Tahitian Moon’, Ice-T’s ‘Midnight’, Health’s ‘Lost Time’ and an Acid Girls remix of Health’s ‘Triceratops’. I have translated the mood into the general theme of ‘Midnight’. My ‘Midnight’ sees awe-inspiring landscapes, glimpses of existential clarity, separate realities and the deep stirrings of the subconscious veering in and out of something all together tangible, dark, angry and violent- of real social context. In particular gang warfare in South Central LA during the early nineties. The esoteric and the real."
