London Collections: Men (LC:M), kick-starting the international menswear calendar from Monday 7th January 2013, provides a new opportunity for the British Fashion Council (BFC) to unite fashion and digital innovation, encouraging engagement with the menswear showcase through social media, live streaming and digital presentations.

The site also features maps of the menswear show, event and showroom locations, as well as hotels, bars and restaurants. Users can create their own online personal calendar for the event, and use the website for directions between the shows; all features of the site that aim to use digital to simplify and maximise the visits of press and buyers to London Collections: Men.

All of the shows at The Hospital Club: Show Space will be live streamed. The live steam will also be available in the LC:M Cinema and BFC Press Lounge at the Hospital Club, ensuring the audience don’t miss a moment.
