Nash, who is known for using sustainably-sourced materials such as merino wool, certified cotton, and deadstock, has been given the award for his approach to design and exploration of identity and heritage in his collections.
“We are delighted to announce Saul Nash as the fifth recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council (BFC). “Nash has a unique way of combining function, tech, and tailoring in his design practice, which has resulted in a new take on luxe sportswear. His work explores the relationship between performance and menswear and is often showcased through beautiful and show-stopping choreography. We are incredibly proud to recognize Saul and look forward to seeing his brand grow.”
The award was presented to Nash by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, at an event hosted by BGC at London’s Design Museum.
