London-based fashion illustrator, Bobby Hillson has had an interestingly vast career. She started her illustration career working for publications such as Vogue and The Sunday Times, and designers like Coco Chanel. In 1969 she founded her own children’s wear, which subsequently earned her nomination for The Times newspaper’s designer of the year.
After years in the fashion industry Hillson turned her hand to teaching. She returned to Central Saint Martin’s and set up the MA Fashion Course. In her time there she has taught many prominent British fashion designers, such as Alexander McQueen, Stephen Jones and Rifat Ozbek.
