Menswear award

Thomas Crisp, Ravensbourne College

Commercial shapes in experimental fabrics characterised a well-rounded menswear collection that fused super-glossy jackets in olive green wet-look fabrics with tie-dye T-shirts and black silk shirts. Sophisticated construction techniques of waistcoats built into tonal shrunken blazers with asymmetric folds slit up the back trod the right side of wearable, while shiny suiting and skinny leather trousers pushed the boundaries of casual attire.

“[Thomas] was chosen for his skills as a modern menswear designer with a good commercial edge,” said Kim Jones, creative director of British luxury goods brand Dunhill.
Fashion writer and broadcaster Caryn Franklin added: “I loved this collection.

It wasn’t hard edged but it was a celebration of masculinity. It looked commercial as it had separate elements to it, but was still cohesive. My advice
to Thomas, and all the graduates, would be to try to work for a bigger company to learn from, before setting up on their own.”
