Men's Fashion Week is an event usually held twice a year in major cities around the globe, typically in January (Autumn/Winter) and June (Spring/Summer). The fashion industry event is held for fashion professionals and fashion occult. It is an event for designers and brands to showcase upcoming collections to press, media, stylists, buyers, fashion trailblazers and, in some cases, the public.
In January 2012, London announced that it would dedicate an entire weekend to menswear fashion designers. Singapore dedicated a few days to men's shows. Los Angeles followed suit launching Men's Fashion Week LA in 2012. Additionally, both Vancouver and Toronto hold a Men's Fashion Week - respectively. Among other cities, New York has supported the developments in the menswear segment, but has yet to announce a Fashion Week dedicated entirely to menswear fashion designers. Paris promotes its men's runway shows as a part of its regular Fashion Week schedule.
In June 2019, Men's Fashion Week was held in London and featured the biggest names in British Fashion known around the world, including Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld. The 2019 collection was designed by Karl Lagerfeld who was responsible for creating the iconic ‘Chanel No. 5’ collection. He said that he wanted his latest collection, which features an array of different fabrics, colours and patterns, to “reflect the spirit of Paris – where everything comes together”.
Lagerfeld’s inspiration came from the city itself, with its many architectural landmarks such as Notre Dame de Paris, Louvre Museum and Arc de Triomphe. His design team included Christian Lacroix, Olivier Theyskens, Nicolas Ghesquière and Pierre Cardin.
In 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, Men's Fashion Week presented shows in Puerto Rico produced by World Events LLC.
