ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Move over ladies. Menswear takes center stage with "London Collections: Men," the first ever Autumn/Winter fashion week for men, which kicked off on Monday (January 7). The menswear only show initially launched in June last year to show off the hottest looks for the fashion forward man. The event, which is centered around The Hospital Club in Covent Garden, features over 60 menswear designers, with 30 ready-to-wear and accessories designers also showing off their wares. London Collection: Men has a committee of well known British names synonymous with fashion including Tom Ford, Tom Hiddleston, David Furnish and male supermodel David Gandy. The Chair of the committee is Dylan Jones, who is also the editor GQ magazine. "I think it's taken this long to have a proper men's fashion week because there's now proper enthusiasm for it," says Jones. London has a long history of turning out fine men's tailoring with Savile Row making bespoke suits for the likes of Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson and Napoleon. According to Mintel, a market research firm, the men's fashion market grew by 3.2% in 2011 to £9.9 billion (16.9 billion USD) and the market is predicted to continue growing up to 16% between 2011 and 2016. Monday saw Topman Design show off their latest styles, followed by the collection from Man. Hackett London are also doing a catwalk show in the crypt at St. Paul's Cathedral. Over the next two days, there will be shows from fashion houses such as Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford - the latter two are newcomers to showing their menswear collections in London. Showing he's still at the top of his game Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood hit the shows with his bride of less than a month, Sally Humphreys. London Collections: Men continues until Wednesday January 9.
