Stefan Cooke joins Fashion East/Topman Man line-up
Fashion East and Topman’s joint initiative Man has named the three designers receiving support and showcasing their collections at London Fashion Week Men's next month with the line-up to include newcomer Stefan Cooke.
Cooke will join Art School by Eden Loweth and Tom Barratt and Rottingdean Bazaar by James Theseus Buck and Luke Brooks who will be supported by Fashion East/Topman for the second season.
The three emerging labels will show their new AW18 collections in a group event on January 7 at the Topman show space.
In addition to the show and the international exposure that it brings, the designers also receive financial sponsorship, business mentoring, a place in a major international sales showroom in Paris and ongoing behind-the-scenes support.
Lulu Kennedy, director of Fashion East, said: "Last season's extraordinary catwalk debuts of Art School and Rottingdean Bazaar marked a radical standout Man show for me and we are thrilled to be working with them for a second season.”
Kennedy added that new talent Cooke’s “meta print aesthetic stole the show at the Central Saint Martin's graduate show and we can't wait to see how he develops."
Topman’s marketing director Jason Griffiths said the season’s line-up is “progressive and exciting.”
The trio of labels was selected by Man’s industry panel and sees them joining a pretty impressive list of Man alumni including Kim Jones, JW Anderson, Christopher Shannon, Martine Rose, Craig Green, Liam Hodges, Wales Bonner and, most recently, Charles Jeffrey Loverboy.
