I kid you not when I say that London Fashion Week Men’s was not on the list of events I wanted to attend this summer. Having hosted Cuts for Him’s first Fashion Industry Insiders Event a couple of weeks before, I was on the road to recuperating and getting some much needed rest. As you can imagine, Hosting a event which caters for about 200 people was hard work to say the least. So I was perfectly ok with me missing LFWM SS18 and any other event happening around that time.
That was the plan until I spoke to a couple of friends from the blogging world who really and truly got me back into the swing of all things LFWM. All they had to do was mention the Mr Porter Summer Social and I was in. I mean completely in. The truth is that because I had barred myself from all events relating to LFWM, I had completely forgotten about one of my favourite events in the summer calendar, Mr Porter.

What was I thinking staying in bed this late I said underneath my breath? Continue reading Styling a tux, for Him and for Her: Cuts for Him→
I find it interesting that a lot of Londoners do not know about London Collections Men (LCM). I have lost count on the amount of times i receive a blank stare whenever I mention LCM to people. I am like, where have you been? But of course, not everyone is into fashion right.
Just in case you are reading this and do not know what LCM is all about, it is a bi-annual event (January and June) where everything pertaining to men’s fashion is exhibited through runway or presentation. Designers and fashion houses showcase their best designs for the coming season so that buyers (wholesale) have the privilege of product live before putting in orders.
