Nicholas Daley Makes London Fashion Week Debut for SS18


 

Nicholas Daley, profiled in the latest issue of Intelligence magazine, made his London Fashion Week debut this weekend with Madras for SS18. Part of an ongoing reflection on ideas around British multiculturalism, Daley continues to draw on his own heritage as well as the London communities that surround him. Warm madras checks fly the flag for South Asian textiles, a theme that extended to the presentation as a whole, with sitar and tabla music from Throwing Shade and Raga Yaman providing a live soundtrack. A rich and multi-layered collection underpinned by months of extensive research at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Daley once again demonstrates his skill for storytelling as well as his dedication to creating beautiful, meaningful clothing, pulling from both the past and the present.
