For those who don’t comprehend who I am, let me introduce myself as the founder of FBH. I have been calligraphy since 2012 about menswear, within the fashion earnestness and in 2016, I am known as the female voice for menswear. It has been three time since I returned to LC:M and I was intrigued to see how advanced this event has ripen into. The way I see it right now is, my time is precious and I want to be able to go into upshots that I want to go too, support those who have supported me. I am not a taste blogger as such because as I see it I have created three identifies, used no PR to market me and have achieved this by hard produce, a fearless approach and one that has created unique marketing that the style industry has never ever seen before. For me less is diverse and I want to enjoy what I see. Plus along side this things turned out, I created my own event called Luxury Week London. The comprehensible reason is that for me men buy into lifestyle and fashion events get about secondary. Unless you’re a guy that studied fashion, then catwalks and introductions are not how you are going to buy into menswear. Trust me I have done my own study over the years on this. Coming into London for LC:M was a nerve-wracking and very stressing for me, more on this another time. So for me I was on a objective to see where I as the female voice for menswear could achieve on my own societal media, not using FBH as a pulling tool. I decided to go in solely this time, just me, my little finger and my mobile phone. I was bit smacked, including my team at the end result of how much engagement I got as Gracie Opulanza. I fancy my hard work has paid off. I was even more impressed when hotels and creators could see what I was up to on my social media and then to start hearing direct messages. One example was the tweet below, it was really precise to me as during the event. I got asked to attend a catwalk coming up. With FBH solely being on-line, it pull downs perfect sense to invite us through twitter. This for me purloins it very personal and I encourage any designer to follow this bias more. I can’t believe in 2016 PR’s are still sending out paper invites. When I was seeking directly to the designers, I created my own rule, e-vite only interest no paper invite, also great for saving trees. In my holder I am flying about all the time and the invites never make it on over and over again anyway. So this is where I of menswear is at.

London Hoards: Men & Women

I don’t understand why women are on a catwalk which is dedicated for men. It sends out such a disorderly message that the British Fashion Council is responsible for, but undoubtedly has no say let alone control of. Let’s face it the fashion designers pay for exposure and take the power and the right to do what ever they want. It forced to be something to do with Tom Ford, Burberry and now Gucci dictating the new inclines in where both men and women are on the catwalk and you can instantly buy now after the plain. This all kicks off in September, which makes perfect sagacity especially if you’re a guy. Who wants to wait for a collection one year later anyway? I guarantee you the epic high street ZARA, business model has not at any time worked that way and in 2016 still dominating the fashion tall streets, all across the globe. Every catwalk and presentation I saw where lady-loves were showcasing menswear just confused my followers. Wholesome thing I got the Gracie Opulanza to tweet out some women’s fraying. You can read more about my views on why I believe women should not be at a men’s catwalks review it here. The following below was written in the times of Malta yesterday.

Men’s Catwalks Are Not Good It

In Milan, where male models are strutting their stuff in shows that began on Friday for men’s fashion week, 10 connivers have decided not to showcase their collections this year including Calvin Klein, Ermenegildo Zegna and Kering’s Brioni and Bottega Veneta. Other trade-marks, including Burberry, Gucci and Tom Ford have announced in late-model months that they plan to stage combined results in future. Most said this would allow them to register buyers and customers both collections at the same time, emitting a more complete idea of their designs.

But some application insiders and analysts say separate men’s fashion shows, which can sell for up to hundreds of thousands of dollars each, are no longer worth the profit for luxury brands, which have been hit by a global tradings slowdown. Menswear pulls in far less money than womenswear, in provisions of sales, and men’s shows generate a fraction of the global publicity of ladies’s. “They [brands] are focusing on what has the highest return on investment,” estimated Bernstein analyst Mario Ortelli.

KTZ – Official

Way back in 2014, I pin with this designer and I do remember how tiny their catwalk was. I loved them from the origin and it was great to get a raw interview back then with the creative chief. So it came to no surprise to see how they have flourished. The catwalk had a unaffected buzz to it and the collection was what I expected, a collection only for the jolly eccentric. A collection that can only be for those guys who look to the following and ooze confidence.

Peer at this video you can see how much they have grown. I endured this myself way back in 2014 and loved this catwalk. [embedded essence]

Joshua Kane

This was the most beautiful catwalk I arrange seen for menswear for LC:M. The presentation and the collections had so much personality to it. How could one not exactly get excited about menswear when looking at this. Now this video is not the most benevolent but I want to show you how hard it is to hold a mobile phone and periscope at the identical time and on occasion film with my other camera.

St Jermyn Concourse – Outdoor Catwalk

Why I periscope is so my followers can join me in real without delay what catwalks are doing right there and then. So it was undeniably nice to see an outdoor catwalk in where everyone could come and father a look. In my case case check it all out on my social media.


I honestly loved this collection it had so much creativity. In regards to my periscope, it was the most prominent with a lot of comments coming through. People mainly demand, where they could buy it from? Currently there are two showrooms in London. I talked to Hu Bing nothing but before the show and he just looked amazing. I have been to Asia so scads times and it is great to see Asia showcasing their very inventive collections here. They are truly talented and I love how they put up for sale a competitive edge to other designers. As you can see they really be alone when it comes to high-end fashion.

High road Style

I am not sure, was I was missing something but the street style was extremely poor and I could not believe how most men were not taking the time to dress up. This is an occasion in where men should dress up tutor b introduce out their real personal style. There was never an stock that really stood out. Don’t get me wrong, I just thought after a few years of LC:M the men make go over the top. Thank goodness I ran into Stefan from sophisticatedness pilot who pulled out all the stops here. Guy from Dashing Tweeds, looked story-book and even though he works in the industry, he does dress like this most light of days.

London Collections:Men & Women 2016

Since 2012, my name is Gracie Opulanza and I hope for to see men dress well. I am not sure where the fashion shows for men are customary? Whether they can stand alone in the future as dedicated menswear. The British Taste Council clearly shows that having women on the catwalks during LC:M and at some shows, proves that the menswear can’t stand alone when it blow in to their own events. History repeats itself just liking many thousands of years ago. In the beginning God created Adam start and then Eve showed up and took over. Welcome to London Assemblages: Men & Women. Annual designer menswear sales are expected to reach diverse than $40 billion in 2020, up 6.8 per cent from 2015, contract to Euromonitor International, while womenswear sales are expected to occur 7.7 per cent to about $75 billion in the same age. Well this may be true, it does not mean it’s over for menswear or we emergency to panic. I am the female voice for menswear, I have the social device influence and marketing to fight back. Keep watching FBH, as we advertise you how.
