"Well when I went to Central Saint Martins in 1990 I had already worked for Hamnett, Galliano, PX etc. and had been hanging out on the scene since I was 14 so I felt quite jaded by everything even before I began. I saw the art school ethos as irrelevant to the outside world. All the students could do these amazing illustrations – like John (Galliano) – but didn't know what a bust dart was. Ironically, it was me that went on to do an MA in fine art and show with a gallery… so I'll shut up now!"
