British fashion designer Richard Quinn has been awarded with the inaugural 'Goodwood Talent In Fashion' accolade, a prize which has been formed to celebrate and recognise rising British fashion talent.

The award has been created in association with the British Fashion Council and has seen Quinn be commissioned to create three one-off designs which were revealed during the Opening Ceremony of the Qatar Goodwood Festival this week. The idea was inspired by Nabil Nayal, who created one-off pieces for Goodwood in 2019.

"I am thrilled to be partnering with Goodwood and excited to immerse myself in the rich history and exciting sense of occasion," Quinn said of his accolade. "It’s wonderful to be celebrating high fashion just as restrictions are being lifted and I can’t wait to see my designs on Goodwood Racecourse."

The award was specially created to nurture rising British talent, recognising innovative fashion designers who show creativity and flair, something which Quinn is certainly worthy of. The designer is known for his flamboyant use of print and extravagant style, and famously won the very first Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design, which saw the Queen sit on the front row for his show during London Fashion Week.

The ‘Goodwood Talent in Fashion’ award will now be held every year, where the winning designer will be selected by a panel of judges. These include; The Duke of Richmond; chief executive of the British Fashion Council, Caroline Rush; non-executive director of the British Fashion Council, Sian Westerman; and our very own Lydia Slater, editor of Harper’s Bazaar.

The pieces will be kept at Goodwood House and will become part of the Goodwood Collection.
