Graduate Fashion Week may feel like a lifetime ago but this summer's show of graduates is still having a big impact on the fashion industry. Today it was announced that Manchester School of Art graduate Nabil El-Nayal is the lucky winner of the British Fashion Council's scholarship.
The young designer will take up his place at the Royal College of Art to study an MA in Fashion Womenswear. A panel, which included Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey chose Nabil for the scholarship which is part funded by the London Development Agency.
Nabil presented a line of Victorian-nightwear inspired dresses back in June. His pieces closed the Manchester graduate show.
