Eloise Kramer Best Concept Awards. Playing on the symbolism that fruit carries in 16th century still-life paintings, Eloise’s collection takes the peach as its shaping metaphor. Materialising and illustrating the maturation of the fruit, her pieces narrate different physical changes caused by bruising and the insects that it inevitably attracts.

This year our design collaboration with Swarovski challenges the students to re-form, re-use, re-work, re t,re-think a number of unsold pieces of jewellery or ornaments provided by Swarovski. ‘The Power of Transformation’ was the brief given to our Year 3 students, they had to think about how they can transform such pieces back into the circular economy. Swarovski recognises that the industry needs to do more for sustainability and is working with Central Saint Martins students to become pioneer in that.
