British designer Sir Paul Smith is set to showcase collections from three of the most promising London menswear labels in his showroom during Milan Fashion Week.
Agi & Sam, Craig Green and Lee Roach are set to feature collection highlights for their Spring/Summer 2016 collections in Milan on June 22. Sir Smith will also host a cocktail party for the young designers in his showroom on Viale Umbria 95 later in the evening.
“As I’ve gained more and more experience, I’ve always tried to give back to the industry,” said Sir Smith to WWD. “The event in Milan is a natural progression of this, and the three designers we’re working with are very talented guys, who I think they will do well in the future.”
All three menswear labels are current recipients of the NewGen sponsorship from the British Fashion Council, and the designers behind Agi & Sam, Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton have also been personally mentored by Sir Smith.
