The 15th annual London Fashion Week Men’s (LFWM) took place in the British capital this past weekend, with some of the cities most flamboyant and fashionable figures all in attendance.
With it’s innovative mix of catwalk shows, fashion house / designer presentations and creative installations and experiences the 3-day event, organised by the British Fashion Council (BFC), was a glorious celebration of diversity, inclusivity and creativity, bringing together fashion lovers from around the world to enjoy, and revel in, the timeless art of fashion!
2020: A Time For Change
Diversity is key in keeping any kind of organisation alive in 2020, as is making people feel like they are a part of your community – the team of organisers at BFC showed great awareness and understanding of these ideals, by doing things a little differently at LFWM this year.
Tapping into the mainstream social conscious and reflecting changes in culture, audience and world climate, the BFC took huge steps forward in presenting themselves as a forward-thinking, progressive and humane corporation by honouring their vows to champion inclusivity and showcase equal representation within the industry.
In their continuing efforts to make fashion less elitist and more accessible to the masses, all shows within the BFC Show Space were live-streamed on the official London Fashion Week Instagram channel, helping to promote, champion and profile a plethora of upcoming brands to a much wider and broader audience.
Diversity Is Our Strength!
As with previous years, the BFC carefully selected and featured a culturally diverse mix of designers and fashion houses in their line up to further promote inclusivity and fight back against the perception that one size, one style, one colour, one race, one mould fits all.
With the inclusion of talents such as Bianca Saunders, Münn, Kaushik Velendra and Vinti Andrews the British Fashion Council prove once and for all they are a accepting and ever-evolving establishment with their fingers of the pulse of what’s happening, current and timely within their industry.
It would be tone deaf of anybody within the any organisation to ignore nor acknowledge the state of our world today.
So in a bid to tackle current issues raised by environmentalists and diminish some of the backlash the fashion industry has faced in recent times with regards to climate change and excessive waste, the council continued to enhance the development and commitment to sustainability with their Positive Fashion initiative, a platform designed to set industry standards that encourage companies to champion greener business models and enable positive change.

“London Town is Rockin'”
As the world of mens fashion goes back to ‘normal’ following another incredibly successful Fashion Week, we here at Fuzzable would like to applaud the British Fashion Council for once again positioning itself, and the wonderful city of London, as being a major hub of creativity within menswear design.
