Launched in 2010, LONDON show ROOMS Men is a strategic element of the BFC's support and mentoring scheme, providing a unique opportunity for emerging British designers to promote themselves outside of London. The initiative has grown season on season, galvanising high profile media support for London’s hottest menswear rising stars including Astrid Andersen, Christopher Kane, Christopher Raeburn, J.W. Anderson and Nasir Mazhar. Designers are selected based on optimum opportunity to engage local media, retailers, stylists and the broader fashion communities around the globe. The project is co-directed by Anna Orsini, Strategic Consultant and Barbara Grispini, Curator and Designer Brand Development Consultant from the British Fashion Council.
This season, the BFC is delighted to announce that Penhaligon’s, the official London Collections Men supplier will also be present at LONDON show ROOMS in Paris with its new fragrance, Penhaligon’s No.33.
LONDON show ROOMS Men runs from Friday 26th to Tuesday 30th June 2015, 10am to 8pm (closing at 7pm on 30th June) at Le Loft – 3 Cour Bérard – Impasse Guéménée (off 28 rue Saint Antoine) – Paris 75004.
