Fashion East Mens Presentations Aw15
Christmas? Meh. Now that Fashion East has unveiled the line-up for their autumn/winter 2015 men’s presentations, we want to fast-forward to January and London Collections: Men. Newcomer Grace Wales Bonner will join Marques’Almeida, Alan Crocetti, Edward Crutchley and Roxanne Farahmand. “I always love the fun energy of our presentations, with designers free to show their work away from the rules and pressure of the runway,“ said Lulu Kennedy, director of Fashion East. “This season I’m particularly thrilled to introduce radical new talent Grace Wales Bonner to our gang and to host a salon show for the brilliant Shaun Samson. Total talent all packed under one roof – it’s going to be buzzing!” We don’t doubt it. With this line-up and a salon show for Shaun, buzzing is exactly what it’s going to be. Grace’s BA graduate collection (pictured) had us clapping like teenage girls at a One Direction concert back in May and, very deservedly, won the L’Oréal Professionel Talent Award. We’re looking forward to seeing what Grace and the rest of Lulu’s motley (and very talented) crew have come up with. So hurry up, Christmas!
