With his explosively colourful flower-smothered printed collection,Richard Quinn is a star of the CSM MA class of 2016. Quinn has launched himself into business in a wholly different way. This summer, Londoner Quinn set up his own textile printworks in Peckham, as a studio facility for the young fashion community to share at reasonable cost. Richard is with us to show his collection – a taster of his upcoming launch in september London Fashion week, and talk with Sarah Mower about his social enterprise.
