Central St. Martins, the London fashion school that's educated the likes of Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Stella McCartney, and Paul Smith closed its Charing Cross Road doors last month with a fashion party to end all fashion parties. We just got a dispatch via the University of the Arts London newsletter, which reads:

Central Saint Martins’ Farewell to Fashion at Charing Cross Road party is already gaining the legendary status of 1960?s festivals. The bash was thrown by Central Saint Martins grad Katie Grand (1991) and featured an epic set by Pulp, playing out their era-defining tunes in the very College featured in their famous lyrics.

Seven hundred revellers—including members of the Sex Pistols (whose first ever gig took place in the Central Saint Martins bar) filled the historic Arts and Crafts building, to reminisce and celebrate.

The new college building will be situated in Kings Cross. Check out a preview of the new campus after the jump.
