Nick Thomas

Personal statement

Nick graduated in 2007 where he won the prestigious Gold Award at Graduate Fashion Week with his ‘British Eccentricity’ knitwear collection.

For the next nine years, he worked as a fashion knitwear designer in both the luxury and high-street sectors, including time overseas, for brands including Alfred Dunhill, John Smedley and Next.

Informed by his MA, Nick has since developed a research-led practice that explores the notion of a ‘shared creative experience’. He strives to raise awareness of inclusive practices within art and design by developing tactile tool-kits that engage audiences with materials and the making process itself.

Drawing on his extensive industry experience, Nick will provide a contemporary context to the Constructed specialism, with a particular focus on yarn and materials for knitted textiles.
