Since winning the Womenswear Award for his beautiful, Elizabethan nightwear inspired collection at Graduate Fashion Week back in June, Nabil El Nayal has been getting a lot of attention, not only across the fashion blogosphere, but in huge fashion publications such as Elle and Vogue.

Today's announcement that he has been awarded a coveted scholarship by the BFC to study an MA in Fashion Womenswear at the Royal College of Art in London therefore, comes as little surprise.

When I saw his collection closing the Manchester School of Art show, I was genuinely stunned by the gorgeous, ethereal gowns that graced the catwalk, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
