The second edition of London Collections: Men, which will be held from January 7-9, will showcase over 50 menswear designers from the UK and abroad to commemorate the breadth of British menswear and celebrate emerging talent. A range of exciting events will accompany the fashion shows, including the GQ dinner, Tommy Hilfiger’s drinks reception and get-togethers hosted by Esquire, Mr. Porter and Tom Ford.

Besides returning participants, including Savile Row tailors and established brands such as Burberry, Christopher Kane and Jonathan Saunders, organizers have announced Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford and Hardy Amies as next season’s biggest additions. They will be joined by newcomers Lee Roach and Shaun Samson, who will be putting on their first independent catwalk shows.

Furthermore, as part of the event, the British Fashion Council has announced that Christopher Shannon, E. Tautz, J.W. Anderson and Lou Dalton have received Fashion Forward sponsorships and will show their collections alongside the others in January. Winners will receive tailored business support and a cash prize to assist them in putting together their runway shows and presentations.

Dylan Jones, editor of British GQ and Chair of the London Collections: Men event, commented: "All of us involved in the first London Collections: Men were overwhelmed by the response to the first week in June, especially from an international perspective. We have had even more enthusiasm and support for the second season, and we are all looking forward to January being bigger and better than last time."
