RICHARD NICOLL 1977-2016

Friday 21st October 2016

Richard Nicoll sadly, too early, passed away early this morning in Sydney. Since he arrived back in his home country we had got to know him really well. He came to Ten towers and had cups of tea and we talked about all the plans and all he was going to do. He had most recently taken the role at Adidas in Germany, overseeing creative direction, and was leaving in January to start. After he ended his business in the UK –  where he was so much part of British fashion and London Fashion Week – he had spent the past year here, regrouping, gathering new energy, new friends, and inspiring so many people around him. He was energy, fast, so fast, quick fire, quick responses, always on it, thinking, smart and so wry, and with such a big heart. We just sat and talked and watched the grass grow at the tennis courts outside the office. He had been working very closely with Jess Kent, and my last text from him is a link to her new music video which he had worked on with her. He was also working very closely with Double Rainbouu, Mikey Nolan and Toby Jones. He adored Christine Centenera and she was his biggest supporter and gave him so much strength in the past year. He enabled people to go for it, so many people, he loved, he brought ideas, random stuff crazy thoughts, wonderful thinking and always a hug. I really loved him and we are all bereft. He will never be forgotten. Our thoughts go out to his family. av
