The London Collections: Men is running and the best London's menswear designers showcasing their spring/summer 13 collections.

“Fashion continues to play an important role in London's economy, providing thousands of jobs, but also underpinning London's status as a dynamic and creative city that people want to visit and businesses want to invest in.

“The capital's high streets make clear that men are becoming increasingly dapper and style conscious and from Savile Row to east London, we've got some amazingly brilliant designers. As we welcome the world for 2012, this important new menswear showcase will bring international buyers and press and be a significant boost for our creative businesses - now is the time to stake our claim to a potential global market worth billions.” - Boris Johnson, Mayor of London

The Hospital Club, WC2, is the central hub for London Collections: Men, where, alongside the BFC show space, three floors of showrooms and carefully curated static installations from 31 ready-to-wear and accessories designers will be open to press and buyers.
