Professor Holly Fulton

Head of Fashion

Holly Fulton is the Head of Fashion at CSVPA. As a practicing designer with an internationally acclaimed fashion brand, Holly brings both an extensive understanding of the fashion industry and a wealth of education experience to the school. 

Holly studied at Edinburgh College of Art before going on to the prestigious Master’s programme at the Royal College of Art.  She established her eponymous label in 2009, after gaining industry experience in London and Paris.  

As a designer, Holly has a strong history of collaboration, undertaking numerous projects spanning multiple within the fashion and beauty sectors. Attention to detail, complex graphic embellishment and witty twists are what makes Holly’s work instantly recognisable. Hand rendered, digitally manipulated print coupled with unusual fabrications and embellishment create strong unified looks, from top to toe.   

Since her debut collection in February 2009 Holly has developed her own unique visual language, drawing upon a dizzying array of sources, from art deco lines and Bauhaus shapes, to pop art painting and psychedelic illustration. Rich multi-layered surfaces reflect a genuine love of both art history and popular culture.
