Richard Malone graduated from Central Saint Martins BA Fashion Womenswear in 2014, where he was awarded the prestigious LVMH Grand Prix scholarship. Sculpture is a source of inspiration to his collections as well as his surroundings, with much of his innovation taken from his Irish roots and his advocacy for sustainable fashion.

“The Pioneer Programme has been an incredible support for the early stages of my business. Having such a close knit family of business and fashion experts to discuss everything and anything with as a young designer, has been invaluable and I can’t recommend it enough. I’m so grateful to the whole team for all their support and excellent advice.”​ Richard Malone​
