Berlin-born Nico Kubisch has had the technical training and creative influence to produce a unique style of luxurious casualwear which reflects sophistication and traditional tailoring, often focusing on the contrasts that feature within British culture. A clean and constructed line, and a well considered choice of interesting fabrics translate a clear statement while providing a complimentary aesthetic for prints and graphics.
Nico Kubisch started his design career in 1997 as Assistant Designer at Escada Group before studying at Paris found University of Art for Fashion, Esmod, where he graduated with an award winning menswear collection in 2001.
After launching his own line of mens and womenswear in Berlin in 2002, he was offered a position at Alexander McQueen where he worked for three seasons, expanding his knowledge of high-end fashion, print and embroidery. He was heavily involved in the creation of key runway pieces which often feature at exhibitions to this day.
Kubisch’s evident talent and invaluable experience in men’s tailoring have landed him the role of consultant at the reputable Savile Row tailor Gieves & Hawkes where he worked alongside Joe Casely-Hayford.
In 2007 he launched his eponymous menswear label and received the Best Menswear Award and Editorial Award at his New York Fashion Week debut a year later, cementing his place as one of Britain’s new cutting edge designers.
His success didn’t go unnoticed as he took the helm at Italian couture house Angelo Galasso in 2011, with focus on creating bespoke collections for the rich and famous.
Since 2004 Nico Kubisch has worked as freelance designer for various brands and private clients and has launched several brands. More recently, Nico has developed TRH London, an affordable luxury menswear brand and Studio53.
In his latest project Kubisch's focus is on merging his solid knowledge of garment construction with his strong graphic skills as Head of Design at London streetwear brand Trapstar.
