The British Fashion Council (BFC) and TOPMAN hosted a reception on Monday 21st May to celebrate the recipients of S/S13 Newgen Men awards. This season, six of London’s cutting-edge menswear designers will receive mentoring and support to showcase their latest collections at the inaugural London Collections: Men 15th -17th June 2012.
Caroline Rush CEO of the British Fashion Council, commented “We're delighted to be supporting six of London's emerging menswear talents this season, with special thanks going to TOPMAN for their continued and on-going support of the Newgen Men initiative.
This announcement kick-starts the countdown to the launch of our dedicated menswear showcase, London Collections: Men, and is the perfect opportunity to celebrate Britain as a leading force in menswear and capital of emerging talent."
Gordon Richardson, Design Director, TOPMAN, who sat on the judging panel, said “I can’t think of better designers to represent the first ever London Collections: Men. Between them they represent all that's diverse and wonderful about British fashion right now.”
“It was so thoughtful of the Olympic Games and the Queen to time their big events to draw attention to London Collections: Men that I felt momentarily trepidatious: how could fashion possibly compete with a gold medal and a diamond jubilee crown? But if the Newgen Men recipients are any indication, things are going to be just fine.
