Student wins 'Fashion with a conscience' award

He continues: "I thought my designs might not be commercial enough for the judging panel, but they really seemed to understand what I was trying to achieve. I never dreamt I'd win, so I was really shocked when I found out!

"I can't believe how far I've come since my first year and I think my garments are now both commercial and eccentric. I love the idea of shaping the way people look in the future."

A bright future ahead
Nabil is currently working on his graduation collection and waiting to hear if he's been selected for the prestigious Graduate Fashion Week in London. One voluminous dress, which took Nabil 10 weeks to create, has a high neck piece sewn entirely by hand, six sleeves and uses 16 metres of fabric.

The talented fashion designer joins the Royal College of Art in September to study for a MA in Womenswear and plans to use the RSA prize money to help fund his studies. Longer term, Nabil dreams of working for a high end designer and one day running his own fashion label.
