Following in the very big footsteps of J.W. Anderson, Christopher Shannon and Sibling, Kent boy turned East Londoner Liam Hodges joins an exciting lineup of NEWGEN MEN designers, including Agi & Sam, Alex Mullins, Astrid Andersen, Bobby Abley, Cottweiler, Craig Green, Diego Vanassibara, Nasir Mazhar and PIETER. 

After showing a collection inspired by pirate radio for his third and final outing with Fashion East and TOPMAN initiative MAN, Hodges has scored a place on the impressive roster for NEWGEN MEN support, sponsored by TOPMAN. He'll be showcasing his fall/winter 16 collection in a catwalk show at London Collections: Men next January alongside the other nine recipients. Each of them will receive financial support and business mentoring.

"The caliber of design talent coming through the NEWGEN MEN award is testament to the incredible strength of menswear design out there right now," says Jason Griffiths, Marketing Director of TOPMAN. "Each season we -- as a panel -- find it harder to decide on the finalists. This season will not disappoint -- the caliber is second to none and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what our designers bring to the table during January's LCM and reaffirming London as the hottest showcase on the menswear calendar."
