NEWGEN MEN S/S 11 Winners Announced

Firstly allow me to apologise for having not blogged for a few days. As many of you will have noticed me shouting on my Twitter, it was my birthday yesterday and so I have spent the last few days being somewhat self indulgent!

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:

Catwalk:

Christopher Shannon
James Long
JW Anderson

James Long A/W 10

Presentation:

Carolyn Massey
Lou Dalton
Sibling

Carolyn Massey A/W 10

Installations:

Christopher Raeburn
James Small
Katie Eary
Omar Kashoura

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.

I don't know if it's my favourite day but it's definately great to see such amazing, fresh new talent coming through for mesnwear and that it's being supported by the industry. Just a shame we won't be seeing Massey on the main catwalk, really enjoyed her show last season.
