How do you feel about being the winner of the L’ Oreal prize of the Central Saint Martins MA 2012?
Its amazing! I didn’t think that it will ever happen, I don’t think also that a male has won this prize before. I feel very fortunate.

What was the idea behind the total-black outfits?
It was all based around religion and work-wear, grouping of people wearing the same uniform into a major inspiration of the shapes and the silhouettes.

Did you see the trends coming up from this year’s graduates?
If you look at the show there were two main things going on. This feeling of kind recycle clothing and in a quite political way. And then, there’s another feeling quite minimalist but in a really new way.
