We had a brilliant evening at the London Fashion Week Men’s presentation of the A/W19 collection by Nicholas Daley, one of my ex students.

The Black Ark collection takes its name from the Jamaican studio of music producer Lee Scratch Perry and, as with previous collections, the show was an event as well as a fashion show with 2 hours of music from up and coming artist Puma Blue and a set by the legendary British music producer Dennis Bovell (all of whom wore garments created by Nicholas).

As with other collections, Black Ark reflects Nicholas’ Scottish and Jamaican heritage, along with his focus on British manufacturing, including specially created bespoke fabrics and footwear.

It’s a busy time for Nicholas as he’s also got through to the finals of the prestigious International Woolmark Prize, the winner of which is released in February so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed!
