London fashion week men's 2017

 

Since its inception as a one day display of menswear at the end of London Fashion Week, LFWM has grown to be recognised as one of the most exciting platforms for menswear in the world.

Previously known as London Collections Men, the event was renamed London Fashion Week Men’s to recognise its equal importance to womenswear and better engage with a consumer audience.

LFWM showcases the very best creative and design talent from around the world through a packed schedule of shows, presentations, installations and events.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, commented: “London Fashion Week Men’s is a truly international celebration of fashion, design and creativity. As Mayor, I’m proud to be able to provide funding to support this event and the next generation of London designers.

Dylan Jones OBE, London Fashion Week Men’s Chair, commented: "London has always prided itself on showcasing creativity, particularly when it comes to fashion, and as the city has always been a keen exponent of the traditional and the rebellious, it’s no surprise that in the last six months, our capital has become even more renowned as a centre of excellence."
