Fashion 12 January 2016

The British retail chain Topman opened the four-day menswear showcase London Collections Men (LCM) at the University of Westminster’s exhibition space Ambika P3. Celebrity guests included the event’s ambassadors model David Gandy and rapper Tinie Tempah, as well as singer Nick Jonas, TV presenter Dermot O’Leary and many more.

Taking place between 8-11 January, the London Collections Men 2016 autumn/winter show opened with Topman Design at Ambika P3. Dylan Jones, chair of London Collections Men, hailed the the capital’s eighth men’s fashion showcase as “the biggest and best”.

With diverse designs, Topman’s 2016 Autumn/Winter collection took inspiration from the 1990s. The exciting fashion showcase proved a great success, with handmade Lego mask designs by Bwoywonder modelled outside the show. On Saturday 9 January, Ambika P3 also hosted the catwalk show by US leather brand Coach.

Creative Director of Coach and University of Westminster graduate Stuart Vevers unveiled his latest menswear designs for the brand. Stuart graduated from the University of Westminster in 1996 with a degree in Fashion Design BA Honours.

Tiger of Sweden’s catwalk show, which also took place at Ambika P3, included a captivating live band performance.
