About

Nicholas Daley graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2013 and launched his eponymous label in 2015. Since the brand’s genesis, Nicholas has continually explored his dual-ethnic heritage, being of Jamaican and Scottish descent: he widely questions and reflects the notion of multiculturalism within the British identity.

Placing great significance on craftsmanship with his production within the UK and Japan, Nicholas works with recognised artisans creating bespoke textiles and fabric finishes for every collection.

For the last six seasons Nicholas has been supported by The British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN designer programme showcasing his collections during London Fashion Week Men’s. He was also the recipient of the 2019 International Woolmark Prize Semi-Final Award and most recently an LVMH 2020 Prize finalist.

He has collaborated with iconic brands such as Adidas and Fred Perry, continuing his creative narrative into new areas of the fashion market.

Nicholas is stocked within notable stores such as International Gallery Beams, Browns, Mr Porter, SSENSE and Dover Street Market.
