Huzzah! Finally London menswear designers get the chance to shine in this mini fashion week called 'London Collections: Men', from today till Sunday. After years of being unfortunately placed on the fashion week calendar and after fashion pioneer Lulu Kennedy started MAN a few years ago, putting forward formidable designers like James Long, Christopher Shannon and JW Anderson; the London menswear scene has finally found its own home. I really wish I could be there now - damn exams - but one day soon I'll be sure to get there. So enjoy the shows, just click 'read more' for the full schedule!
