Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, Dylan Jones OBE, Chair of London Fashion Week Men's (LFWM) and Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive British Fashion Council (BFC) hosted the official opening of LFWM at The Store Studios, 180 Strand.

The inaugural event of its name, London Fashion Week Men's is the tenth edition of the London menswear showcase. Since its inception as a one day display of menswear at the end of London Fashion Week, LFWM has grown to be recognised as one of the most exciting platforms for menswear in the world.

Previously known as London Collections Men, the event was renamed London Fashion Week Men's to recognise its equal importance to womenswear and better engage with a consumer audience.

Some of the collections on show included Barbour International, a stand alone brand from J Barbour & Sons Ltd. The show celebrated a long and rich motorcycling heritage. The International jacket, with its distinctive diagonal chest pocket originally designed to hold a map, remains in manufacture and has been picked up by classic bike aficionados and fashionistas alike.
