The British Fashion Council (BFC) has announced the emerging menswear talents who will receive NEWGEN MEN support, sponsored by Topman, to showcase their AW16 collections at London Collections Men in January. Designers receive support for a catwalk show, a presentation or an installation. This year Liam Hodges (catwalk) joins existing NEWGEN MEN designers Agi & Sam (catwalk), Alex Mullins (presentation), Astrid Andersen (catwalk), Bobby Abley (catwalk), Cottweiler (presentation), Craig Green (catwalk), Diego Vanassibara (installation), Nasir Mazhar (catwalk) and PIETER (presentation). As well as receiving showcasing opportunities the recipients are given financial support and business mentoring. The support aims to build their businesses commercially and help them develop relationships with key press and buyers. The BFC is working with DLA Piper, RSM and Shaw Walker Lees to provide legal, commercial and accounting advice for the designers.
