British Fashion Council announces
NEWGEN MEN recipients for SS16

The British Fashion Council (BFC) has announced the emerging menswear talents who will receive NEWGEN MEN support, sponsored by Topman to showcase their SS16 collections at London Collections: Men. Ready-to-wear menswear brands including Bobby Abley (catwalk), Cottweiler (presentation), and PIETER (presentation) join the existing NEWGEN MEN recipients: Agi & Sam (catwalk), Alex Mullins (presentation), Astrid Andersen (catwalk), CMMN SWDN (presentation), Craig Green (catwalk), Diego Vanassibara (installation), Kit Neale (salon show), Nasir Mazhar (catwalk) and Vidur (installation). As well as receiving showcasing opportunities the recipients are given financial support and business mentoring. The support aims to build their businesses commercially and help them develop relationships with key press and buyers. The BFC is working with DLA Piper and Baker Tilly to provide legal, commercial and accounting advice for the designers. NEWGEN MEN was established in September 2009, building on Topman and Fashion East’s successful MAN initiative, and has supported designers including Christopher Shannon, J.W. Anderson, James Long Lee Roach and Sibling.
