Campaign: M·A·C VIVA GLAM

M·A·C Cosmetics is proud to announce the recipient of the 2023/24 M·A·C Cosmetics Equal Futures Scholarship for BA Fashion at globally renowned art and design institution Central Saint Martins, London.

As part of its ongoing commitment to advancing equality, inclusion and justice, M·A·C Cosmetics introduces Anisa Ibrahim as the second recipient of the Scholarship. Awarded to a Black, Asian or Multi-Ethnic student, the scholarship, now in its second year, will cover maintenance and support for the three-year period of their degree.

As a result of being a recipient of this award, I believe that this scholarship will be the stepping stone to greater success for me as a designer in the future. This is because the support this scholarship provides means that I will have the skills and attributes that the fashion industry looks for and seeks out, which to me is someone who has an innovative, authentic and extensive portfolio, something I hope to develop by the end of my BA degree.”

The M·A·C Cosmetics Equal Futures Scholarship for BA Fashion at CSM is available to one home student from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background accepted on the first year of the BA Fashion Design course at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
