Richard Nicoll
Richard Nicoll has died in Sydney aged 38. The fashion designer is suspected to have died from a sudden heart attack. London-born Nicoll, who last year put his eponymous label on hold and returned to Australia where he was raised, showed his
collections on the London Fashion Week schedule for nearly a decade, adopting the capital as his home after he graduated from Central Saint Martins with an MA in womenswear in 2002.The designer's talents stretched beyond his own-name brand, including a creative director stint at Cerruti, in addition to freelance design for Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. A highly regarded and loved member of the fashion industry, at the time of his death he was working on a number of projects, including one with musician Jess Kent, and was preparing to take up a creative director role at Adidas in January.
