Days after winning The 2022 International Woolmark award, British Guyanan designer Saul Nash received the prize for British Design on Wednesday. The award was presented to Saul Nash by The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, on behalf of the Queen.
Nash is known for combining men’s luxury wear and sportswear by carefully curating innovative designs that allow for freedom of movement.
“A deeply autobiographical practice, his approach marries the worlds of dance and fashion together – telling personal stories of the cultural and societal landscape he grew up within, and challenging limiting ideas around masculinity.”
The innovative designer studied Performance Design and Practiced at Central Saint Martins and received a MA in Menswear at the Royal College of Art. His mix of expertise in design and movement is one of the many reasons his designs are well-received in the fashion community.
