Fashion East and Topman reveal new MAN designers
today May 12, 2016
Non-profit programme Fashion East and British fashion retailer Topman have revealed the names of the two new menswear designers taking part in their MAN showcase: Feng Chen Wang and Per Götesson.
Wang and Götesson will both show at MAN, Fashion East and Topman's joint emerging talent platform, at London Collections Men in June. They join returning designer Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, who's back for a second season.
Fashion East director Lulu Kennedy says: “I am properly delighted about June’s MAN – our really exciting new names will join Charles Jeffrey who’s back from his brilliantly buzzy debut with us last season! We’re also adding an element of presentation into the runway event, which I’m really into!”
Gordon Richardson, Topman Creative Director, said: “Following on from last season’s exceptional MAN line-up, this season delivers on talent yet again. I can’t wait to see what Charles Jeffrey comes back with and am excited to see what newcomers Feng Chen Wang and Per Götesson add to the MAN mix.”
The designers receive financial sponsorship, expert business mentoring, a place in a top international sales showroom in Paris, and more behind the scenes support through the programme. They also get to showcase their Spring Summer 2017 collections in a group show on Friday 10th June in London at the Topman showspace.
MAN's designer alumni includes Kim Jones, J.W. Anderson, Christopher Shannon, Astrid Andersen, Craig Green, Liam Hodges and Wales Bonner.
