But one of the more viral moments happened off the runway thanks to Madonna, who made a surprise appearance and sat front row next to FKA twigs. The superstar wore a black leather Moschino ensemble, giant dark sunglasses and a boom box-shaped bag by Midnight Studios' Shane Gonzales.
Why was Madonna at a student fashion showcase? Well, her son Rocco enrolled in the school's fine art course in 2019, so there's a familial connection, and she also owns a townhouse in London. She and twigs also made a day of it as they were spotted leaving a night of clubbing at members-only establishment Oswald's afterward.
According to Vogue, other notable guests at this year's BA show included designers Conner Ives, Charlotte Knowles, David Koma, Kiko Kostadinov and Matty Bovan — all of whom went to CSM. Knitwear designer Alice Morell-Evans won the top prize. "MADONNA SAW EVERYTHING!," she wrote in a video of Madonna watching her collection from the front row.
