The spotlight lands on men in London next month for London Collections: Men, a showcase for celebrating the best emerging and established menswear designers.

From Monday 7 January to Wednesday 9 January, The British Fashion Council, in collaboration with TopMan, will run a packed show schedule of over 50 menswear designers premiering their Autumn/Winter collections for 2013.

London Collections: Men will launch on Monday 7th January, followed by a reception hosted by Tommy Hilfiger and Esquire.

New additions include Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford, who have both announced they will present their mainline menswear collections next month.

Industry events on the following days include an in-store event by Burberry, an exclusive capsule collections launch by online retailer Mr Porter and event by Ralph Lauren.

Fashion East, a non-profit initiative that supports emerging designers, will give a catwalk-alternative presentation with an installation of static exhibits, live models and multimedia. The presentation will take place Monday 7 January from 16:30-18:30.

The three day showcase will close with the GQ Dinner, co-hosted by Dylan Jones Tinie Tempah and Sir Paul Smith and an event hosted by Tom Ford.
