Australian fashion designer Richard Nicoll passed away at his home in Sydney, at the young age of 39.

Based in London the majority of his career, he was a prominent figure in the London Fashion Community. A Central Saint Martins graduate, he worked for a number of fashion houses (Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and Cerruti) alongside his own namesake label, which he closed in 2015 to focus on his career as Creative Director at Jack Willis.
