This year introduces New York Fashion Week: Men’s that will give New York brands a chance to show off menswear collections in a concentrated venue. Also, London Fashiok Week: Men’s is only a few seasons old. Luckily, both events will get some heavy weight credibility by Tommy Hilfiger who will be showing at both events: “I look forward to supporting men’s fashion in both cities this year,” said Hilfiger.
Other brands set to show at New York Fashion Week: Men’s this year are: Rag & Bone, Public School, Billy Reid, Todd Snyder, Robert Gellar, Patrik Ervell, Michael Bastian, and Ovadia & Sons.
