“This exhibition is a true source of inspiration and a ray of hope for the future. There is so much potential this generation have to offer, not only in terms of creative talent but also their unwavering commitment to join us in helping to transform the industry to tackle climate change and protect our planet,”- Penny Brook, Chief Marketing and Experience Officer at Canada Goose.

“I am delighted with the fantastic outcome of the project with Canada Goose, ‘Keeping the Planet Cold”. The students of BA and MA Fashion and BA Fashion Communication have responded with creative provocation, debate and potential solutions across garments, media and objects that are as challenging as they are beautiful.” – Fabio Piras, Course Director of MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins.

Working in close partnership with Canada Goose throughout the academic year, projects by MA Fashion and BA Fashion Communications students will be on display at the Central Saint Martins’ Lethaby Gallery in Granary Square. Each of these projects is inspired by the incredible research scientists at Polar Bears International (PBI), a non-profit organisation focused on polar bear conservation. PBI and Canada Goose are longstanding partners, having been working together on various initiatives since 2007.
