FLY BEYOND

GILES donates to the Les Visionnaires Scholarship Fund auction

GILES is supporting Central Saint Martins’ new Les Visionaires Scholarship Fund in partnership with Grey Goose vodka.

The valuable scholarship will be open to all postgraduate applications across all subjects for the 2016 academic year, irrespective of wealth or background.

To raise money for the creation of the fund, there will be an invitation-only auction at the college on Thursday 2 July, hosted by GQ’s Dylan Jones and in association with Christie’s.

Under the gavel are original works by 21 St Martins alumni inspired by the Grey Goose motto ‘Fly Beyond’. GILES has designed a special bottle featuring his distinctive fashion illustrations.

Others to contribute to the auction include Beatrix Ong, Cathy Lomax, Fredrikson Stallard, Matthew Williamson, Stephen Jones, Sir Terence Conran and Will Broome.

The fund will also be bolstered by the sale of limited edition Grey Goose Martini gifts sets at Selfridges by Hannah Martin, Jean-Pierre Braganza and Iain R Webb and a selection of cocktails at the Mondrian Hotel by mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardarna.
