Splitting their time between studios in London and New York, James Fayed (owner) and Dean Gomilsek-Cole (Head of Design) are the unexpected creative force behind the 130yr old British brand, Turnbull & Asser. Consistently redefining what constitutes English style, their collections continue to astound and confound in equal measure. Recently the duo have begun to explore various mediums to rekindle the brands’ relationship with art, having had artists as diverse as Picasso and Hockney on their books.
This year Turnbull & Asser will bring the Hix Award winner’s artwork to life – screen–printing the work of art onto a silk pocket square at Adamley in Macclesfield, an establishment with hundreds of years of history printing silks in England. An all expenses trip to Adamley will be provided, where the winner can join Turnbull & Assers creative duo James and Dean to witness the printing of their pocket square in person. 5 silk pocket squares will be provided for the winner and their friends and family
