Central St Martins graduate scoops H&M Design Award

Richard Quinn, one of the four UK finalists, was awarded the annual H&M Design Award yesterday, beating off competition from the US, Korea, Israel and France.

H&M Design Prize

Quinn, a graduate from London’s Central Saint Martins, won €50,000 (£43,000), the opportunity to sell a capsule collection in selected H&M stores and mentoring.

The H&M Design Award was established in 2012 to support young designers’ creativity and encourage them as they try to build a career in fashion.

Judges praised Quinn’s creativity, commercial thinking and approach to sustainability.

“We all fell in love with Richard,” said Ann-Sofie, H&M’s creative advisor. ”He has a clear vision for his brand, and a real wow factor in his collections. Richard is deeply creative, with a very holistic view of the environment, and he’s a worthy winner of the H&M Design Award 2017.”
