"Our aim is for equal representation in support of current and future students on the BA Fashion pathway," read the statement on a flyer, which also congratulated its fellow students who were partaking in the press show.
And of those that were, it was Jim Chen Hstang Hu, Martin Hanly and Pierre Campo that particularly grabbed the spotlight - winning the L'Oreal Young Talent Award, first runner-up womenswear, and second runner-up menswear respectively.
Entangled fisherman ensembles, piled-up bohemian traveller styles and lots of undone tailoring provided the overcall camp of categories that students were aiming for - a more is more approach (as we'd expect from CSM after all) central to designs and styling.
The money shot, however, came from Milligan Beaumont, who sent models cruising down the catwalk on skateboards. And just as we had seen at Graduate Fashion Week before it, menswear was especially strong this time round.
