Saul Nash is the recipient of The Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. The Award was presented by The Duchess of Cambridge, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, in this Platinum Jubilee year during an event at The Design Museum in London, which celebrated and showcased all the talent support initiatives of the BFC Foundation. Nash – both a designer and a choreographer – is recognized for his innovative take on design; developing new materials whilst actively pioneering a new frontier within the industry – imbuing sportswear design with an exploration of heritage, performance, and technical innovation.

Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive British Fashion Council (BFC) commented: “We are delighted to announce Saul Nash as the fifth recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design. 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 recognise Saul and look forward to seeing his brand grow.

Last week, Nash won the 2022 International Woolmark Prize and in the past three years alone, he has been named a LVMH Prize 2021 semi-finalist, a NEWGEN recipient and a member of Highsnobiety’s THE NEXT 20 list.
