University of the Arts London to honour LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault

Alongside Emma Hill, Harold Koda and Nick Knight

Bernard Arnault, Emma Hill, Harold Koda and Nick Knight are among the fashion and creative figures to be honoured during the annual graduation ceremonies at University of the Arts London

University of the Arts London includes Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion and Chelsea College of Arts – and this year, it will pay its respect towards LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton head Bernard Arnault, plus photographer Nick Knight; Harold Koda, who is curator in charge of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; writer and fashion commentator Felicity Green, and Justine Picardie, Editor of British Harper's Bazaar

In a statement released this week it said that LVMH and the education facility have enjoyed a, "very productive relationship for many years," collaborating on numerous courses and programs.

The new Central Saint Martins building at King's Cross is home to the LVMH Lecture Theatre and the French conglomerate awards scholarships annually to three of the school's fashion students.

The (in total) 13 honourees will be recognised for contributions to their respective fields during eight graduation ceremonies that will take place from July 14-17 at the Royal Festival Hall on London's Southbank. Each one will address graduating students and share their experiences and advice for a successful career in the creative industries.
