Jake Leith, President of The Chartered Society of Designers, Head of Business & Professional Practice for Fashion & Textiles ( and Design & Craft) at the University of Brighton and has over 20 years’ experience of successfully running his own design practice and 12 years as a teacher-practitioner as well as The Sussex Fashion Trust Awards trustee was delighted to attend the Prince Philip Designers Prize awarded by The HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh at a ceremony recently at the Design Council during November 2011.
Quentin Blake, one of Britain’s best-loved illustrators and the man who created the world-famous images of the Big Friendly Giant and Matilda, was named the winner of the 2011 Prince Philip Designers Prize by HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The awards saw a number of high profile fashion nominees including Stephen Jones one of the UK’s foremost milliners, who has transformed millinery since first opening a salon in 1980, and who has trained other leading designers including Philip Treacy and Noel Stewart. Sir Paul Smith, arguably the most successful British fashion designer ever. Since opening his first shop in Nottingham in 1970 he has built an international business that has defined the way three generations of men – and latterly women – have dressed.
About Quentin Blake
Quentin Blake is perhaps best known for his illustrations of Roald Dahl’s books, but his distinctive pen, ink and watercolour drawings have also accompanied the work of many other children’s authors like Michael Rosen and Joan Aiken. He has illustrated Dickens, Carroll and Lear as well as originating his own characters including Mister Magnolia, Mrs Armitage and Clown.
Since his first drawings appeared in Punch when he was 16, Blake has become recognised around the world in a 60-year career. He became widely known in the 1970s, presenting the BBC’s Jackanory, where he illustrated the various stories on screen. He became the first ever Children’s Laureate in 1999.
