An average Saturday night for hot new designer Richard Nicoll? "It'll involve macaroni cheese, being with my dearest friends and cheering for Alexandra on X Factor ", he divulged to us earlier today at Harvey Nichol's SS09 , Halloween themed preview event. There's nought better than having good ol' chin wag with a designer, so we were thrilled to discover our fave Brit-born Aussie designer, the fashion industry's go-to man for chic tailoring, and white shirts is addicted to the Big X too . We were beginning to think Richard was an all out cheesy pop music fan when we asked him about the reasons behind Mariah Carey on repeat at his last show - turns out that one song was only supposed to be a comical little snippet thrown into the mix and ended up being a whole catwalk show! Needless to say, Nicoll isn't mega keen on listening to Mariah for a while now. Moving on from his SS09 collection , which was a riot of bright pink and orange taioring and jersey tube dresses that we can't wait to get our hands on next season. Or for a quick Nicoll fix, we would go for his colour block vest - its a winner! Richard is already working on his AW09 and is off to design his next Topshop collaboration this afternoon - talk about quick! We were really pleased to hear that his plans for Topshop (poplin stripe shirting mini dresses with strappy necklines) are going to be really affordable and approachable so that any girl can own a piece of classic Nicoll shirting. We like that Richard thinks about us, not just the ladies who can afford expensive clothes. In fact we love it!
