London Collections: Men to add fourth day to schedule

The British Fashion Council has today announced that London Collections: Men (LC: M) will open a day earlier to accommodate a growing schedule of shows, presentations and events, showcasing the best of British AW15 menswear from 9-12th January 2015. Dylan Jones OBE, editor of British GQ and Chair of LC: M, 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 allow 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.” The first day of LC: M will be opened by the AW15 Topman Design show and an opening brunch hosted at the Designer Showrooms at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden. Gordon Richardson, Topman Creative Director, 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 menswear 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.”
