Dylan Jones, the Chair of London Collections: Men has claimed that ‘London is the home of menswear… it always has been and always will be’. Whilst there is a sense of tradition and legacy with the introduction of the tailored suit in Savile Row, successful fashion is an entwinement of past and present, a constant awareness of obsolescence and change of demand. It is necessary to both pay homage to classicism whilst accepting and embracing what is new. Tim Blanks, Contributing Editor, Style.com and a member of the British Fashion Council’s Menswear Committee, said ‘it’s time to make note of the depth – behind all the already familiar names, there are platoons of newbies. That’s more than evolution – it’s inescapable maturity.’
This is one of the most famous and popular exhibitions of the year, showcasing twice a year all of the latest new, up and coming designers current collections. Pure London will be covering a selection of designers from Womenswear, Young Fashion, Accessories, Body and Junior. Seminars and talks will be held over the two days from the likes of Colin Temple – Managing Director Schuh, James Barnett – Production coordinator Selfridges, Caprice Bourett – Founder, Designer & CEO, By Caprice.
Pure London is a great opportunity to network with buyers, press and designers. All in all, it’s a great day out with lots of freebies thrown in.
