London-based fashion designer Richard Nicoll has surprised fashion fans by revealing he will not be showing at London Fashion Week this February.
According to a spokesperson, the designer is taking a sabbatical to “focus on other creative projects”.
Speaking about his decision, Nicoll said: “The decision to skip a season was in order to consolidate my business strategy.”
“In the 10 years that I have been doing my label, the fashion seasonal structure has changed a lot with increased seasons and commercial pressures. I feel it is the right time to pause and think of the best and the most relevant way forward for now.”
London Fashion Week will continue without Nicoll from Friday 20th to Tuesday 24th February this year
