A month ahead of that classic Christian holiday in which people are given socks and fed too much, today Fashion East dropped the names of the forthcoming MAN AW15 show.
Joining Liam Hodges and Nicomede Talavera – both whom joined the line-up back in June, following previous seasons presenting with the Fashion East Menswear Installations – is Central Saint Martins graduate, Rory Parnell-Mooney.
Announced MAN founder, Lulu Kennedy: “We’re hugely proud of Liam and Nicomede – fantastic people and talents who in just one season have worked out how to translate their aesthetic into great product that’s been picked up by the most prestigious international stores… We’re delighted to introduce Rory, the standout menswear MA graduate of this year’s CSM show, who was lucky enough to study under Louise Wilson and Peter Jensen.”
Jensen, the Danish designer who heads menswear on the MA course, adds of Parnell-Mooney’s appointment: “…he was one of those students that could be a pain; I mean that in a good way, because he really believed in what he was doing. And the results were great!”
The trio, supported by Topman, will show on the first day of the now four-day London Collections: Men schedule in January.
