Steven Stokey-Daley, who graduated from the Fashion Design BA Honours course, has been recognised by Vogue as one of ten emerging global designers who are a testament to the power of creativity in times of crisis.
The Vogue article recognised Steven Stokey-Daley as an emerging designer who has creatively risen to the challenge of directing his independent label, SS Daley, through a sea of uncertainty. SS Daley challenges menswear stereotypes and uses donated, dead stock and end of roll fabrics, working in an environmentally and sustainably conscious manner.
One example of Steven’s work which is highlighted in the piece included his creations which were worn by Harry Styles in the music video for his song titled ‘Golden’. In the article, Steven said: “At its core, it’s rooted in subverting British traditionalism. To explore silent queer narratives among the melting pot of heteronormative ideology.”
Daley has had a range of experience in the industry, working in the menswear design teams of both Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford, preparing him to create a collection and brand identity of his own. He previously gained the attention of Sarah Mower, senior Vogue journalist, where he appeared in another article about the use of donated archival McQueen fabric.
Talking about Steven’s work, Professor Andrew Groves, Professor of Fashion Design at the University of Westminster, said: “It’s incredible to think it was only a year ago this week that Steven showed his graduate collection at London Fashion Week and only six months since he graduated from Westminster. He has had a fantastic response to his work from so many people within the international fashion industry, including Vogue. It is a testament to his hard work, creativity and talent.”
