Tom Ford to put on first-ever menswear catwalk show at London Collections Men
Nov 12, 2015
Tom Ford is set to put on a full catwalk show for the first time at London Collections Men in January.
The designer is one of the many top brands registered to showcase their Autumn/Winter 2016 collections at the prestigious fashion event next year. The event combines designer showrooms by some of the UK capital's top menswear talent with runway shows, covering both ready-to-wear and accessories.
A provisional schedule released by the British Fashion Council reveals that heavy hitters Alexander McQueen and Burberry will also be hitting the runway. Other highlights will include shows by returning brands Moschino and Pringle of Scotland, while J.W. Anderson and BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund winner E. Tautz will also host catwalk shows.
London Collections Men marks the first time that Ford has put on a show for his menswear collection anywhere in the world, breaking his established pattern of showing new collections via private presentations.
Hardy Amies, Paul Smith and Richard James are among the brands displaying their luxuriously tailored collections via presentations.
London Collections Men will also feature the BFC Newgen Men initiative, which shines the spotlight on the city's emerging design talents. Agi & Sam, Bobby Abley, Craig Green, Liam Hodges and Nasir Mazhar will host a catwalk show, while Alex Mullins, Cottweiler and Pieter will all hold presentations.
Launched in 2012, London Collections Men is a biannual event focusing solely on British men's fashion. This season's show will run from January 8-11, 2016. The final schedule will be announced on December 7.
