Wales Bonner Raw Diamond

Wales Bonner is the work of British fashion designer Grace Wales Bonner. Her style brings together Pan-African, Caribbean and Western influences, ceremonial and military costumes, tweaked to create a statement, gender fluid wardrobe.

The grand-daughter of a tailor, Grace Wales Bonner graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2014, and was quickly noticed by Lulu Kennedy, who included her in the Fashion East program. Her work rapidly earned her a number of honors and a great deal of attention. She received the L’Oréal Professionel Talent Award, followed by the prize for Emerging Designer at the British Fashion Awards, and won the 2016 LVMH Prize just a few days after presenting her Spring/Summer 2017 collection during London Fashion Week.
