Richard Malone

Designer

Richard Malone is an Irish designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2014, winning the LVMH Grand Prix scholarship and Deutsche Bank's Award for Fashion the same year.

Malone debuted on the official London Fashion Week schedule with Fashion East in September 2015, and has been celebrated for his directional and sculptural garments, which reference his working-class upbringing in rural Ireland.
