Student wins 'Fashion with a conscience' award

18
Apr '08
A budding fashion designer from MMU has won the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) annual Student Award for his womenswear designs.

22-year old Nabil El-Nayal, a final year BA (Hons) Fashion student, beat over one hundred entries to take the £1,200 prize.

The competition brief - entitled 'Fashion with a conscience' - tasked students to design a capsule collection of 12 outfits that reflected current environmental and social concerns.

Four students from MMU were amongst the 13 finalists selected for the final in London, where they were grilled by seven industry judges, including Wendy Dagworthy (Head of Fashion at the Royal College of Art) and British fashion designer Sylvia Ayton (Vice Chairman of the Costume Society).

Nabil based his award-winning collection on the theme of longevity, in contrast with today's throw-away approach to fashion. Taking his inspiration from the Elizabethan era and the dark days of the Black Death, Nabil designed a black and white range with simple, clean, flowing lines and a timeless quality.

A passion for fashion
Nabil said: "I'm passionate about creating clothes – I've never wanted to do anything else – and I'm passionate about the concept behind clothes. I love looking at historical clothing to rediscover styles and techniques that have been forgotten over time. The idea of bringing back ideas from history and using them in a contemporary context really excites me. I also don't believein a fast fashion, so the competition brief was perfect for me."
