es, the world’s fashion capitals are showcasing next year’s spring summer trends on the runways this June… Paris, Milan and now even London – yes, this is the first time London is featuring men’s collections. Yes, I was again caught off-guard. Yes, as usual was super busy and thought had plenty of time to tune in….Woke up on the last day of London Fashion week though all is not lost, it’s just the beginning of trend’s watch…
London Collections: Men’s – Friday June 15th to Sunday June 17th
Men’s collections are showcased twice a year every year in Milan and Paris – January and June without fail. This year, London also adds its two cents worth. This new runway event /fashion week comes immediately before the June’s European collections.
HRH Prince Charles officially launched the first London Fashion week at a reception at St. James Palace. He reportedly told his guests at the reception, “I’m finding it very hard to live with myself, ladies and gentlemen. Because someone suggested that I might be an icon of fashion. After 64 bleeding years, I don’t know why.”
He added: “I have lurched from being the best-dressed man to being the worst dressed man. I don’t know why – presumably it sells publications. Meanwhile I have gone on, like a stopped clock – and my time comes around every 25 years.”
