London Collections: Men Expands
October 20, 2014
The British Fashion Council have announced the dates of 2015’s London Collections: Men. Starting a day earlier than usual it will allow more time for the already jam packed schedule of shows, presentations and events.
Dylan Jones OBE Chair of London Collections: Men commented:
“Now in its sixth season, LC:M has continued to grow year on year, this expansion reflecting its success. As more designers join the schedule and attendance figures grow, the extra day will all press and buyers the opportunity to experience all that LC:M has to offer – from London’s heritage brands and international names through to the most celebrated emerging talent.”
Kicking off on the 9th January, LC:M will open with the TOPMAN Design show in London’s Covent Garden.
Gordon Richardson, Creative Director, TOPMAN commented:
“We are very excited and extremely proud to be opening the first day of LC:M in January with TOPMAN Design. 2015 also marks the 10th anniversary of MAN – our joint initiative with Fashion EAST which over the years has seen some of the most exciting young designers come through the fold. MAN paved the way for LC:M – claiming first a slot on the LFW womenswear calendar, then a half day dedicated to menswear, then a full three days … and now, very excitingly – a fourth. It really stands testament to the level of quality and more importantly creativity that we have right here in London.”
Before LC:M first launched in 2012 there was just one day dedicated to it at London Fashion Week. Now that menswear has got its own dedicated schedule is just what the menswear market needs and now that it is expanding to four days shows just how much London has to offer to the global menswear market.
London Collections: Men AW15 will run 9-12th January 2015.
