"I am thrilled to be working with the British Fashion Council on London Collections: Men. The inaugural men's week was far more successful than any of us anticipated, and we have been overwhelmed by the support and enthusiasm for the project from designers, retailers, buyers and the press. LC: M has already contributed to the changing perception of menswear in this country, and our plans for the next week in January, and beyond, will hopefully build on this." - Dylan Jones, Editor GQ
Caroline Rush, CEO of the British Fashion Council, said "Dylan has played a fantastic role as chair of the 2012 menswear committee and his input has been critical to the roaring success of the inaugural LC:M in June. Since June he has continued to work behind the scenes to move the event onto a permanent and prominent footing. He plays a unique role in harnessing the support of international industry leaders and style icons to drive forward this incredible new showcase of British menswear. We look forward to working with him over the next two years."
