However, today sees a very important announcement and one which I personally take a great deal of interest in, the NEWGEN MEN winners.
NEWGEN MEN, much like it's womenswear counterpart, supports young designers with financial backing, as well as a platform to showcase their work. I was lucky enough to see the 4 NEWGEN recipients, Carolyn Massey, JW Anderson, Christopher Shannon and James Long, showcase their collections on the catwalk at LFW last season and I was really impressed by the calibre of new talent coming through from the Menswear sector, not to mention how pleased I was that such talent is being actively supported.
So, without further ado, the NEWGEN MEN winners for Spring/Summer 2011 are as follows:
James Long A/W 10
Carolyn Massey A/W 10
James Small A/W 10
I must admit I was slightly disappointed to see the number of catwalk recipients decreased from 4 to 3 (particularly as I was greatly impressed by Carolyn Massey last season and I feel she's definitely a designer at the forefront of fresh menswear design talent) but a talented and appealing line up nevertheless and one which I look forward to seeing for myself in September.
