CENTRAL Saint Martins graduate Richard Quinn has been awarded the H&M Design Award for 2017, it was announced recently in London.
As winner of the high-street fashion retailer's prestigious award, Quinn will win €50,000 (RM235,000), a year mentorship with H&M, and the chance to develop some of his pieces to be sold in selected H&M stores in autumn 2017.
He was selected from eight international finalists by a jury chaired by H&M's creative advisor, Ann-Sofie Johansson.
The London-born 26-year-old womenswear designer prints all of his own fabrics using ethical processes and has plans to open a print studio in London that would serve as a creative hub for young designers. – AFP Relaxnews
