Sarabande Foundation was established by Lee Alexander McQueen because he passionately believed that creative minds with the potential to push boundaries should be given the same opportunities he’d enjoyed. The Foundation provides scholarships to students at graduate and postgraduate level. These are chosen by friends of the Foundation such as Kim Jones, Dinos Chapman, Matthew Slotover, Thom Browne, Sarah Burton, OBE, Giles Deacon, Sadie Coles, and Katy England. It also houses artists’ studios at Sarabande HQ for designers, artists and jewellers. The Sarabande studio spaces offer either free or at 1/5th  of the normal London rate. Sarabande is a place where it’s safe to experiment, to succeed, to fail, but always to move forward.
