The facebook news feed is a marvellous thing sometimes. Whilst signing in on a very dull and grey morning in London I was gifted with having the pleasure of reading a piece by Dazed & Confused, who have interviewed 5 Central St Martins Fashion students who are lucky enough to showcase their work at the highly anticipated London Fashion Week February 2010 event. (Seriously I am wriggling in my boots over this one).

To my utter horror only a single student chosen to flaunt their designs was actually creating a menswear range (variety at its best I see) so credit to Trine Guldager for her efforts. This has thus inspired me to delve into the very zippers of male fashion in particular one male model I have been infatuated with ever since his spring cover breakthrough in Dansk 2008. Cole Mohr has been my guilty pleasure for far too long now and he has respectively been the proud manikin to many a global designer. He has sported work by some of the most reputable Fashion designers around the world including Burberry, Dior, Valentino, Marni, Marc Jacobsand British Punk Queen Vivienne Westwood as well as being photographed by photography superstar Hedi Slimane.

With mens fashion offering so much diversity (and steering far clean of an outrageously dull tshirt and jeans) why is it London Fashion Week specifies around the beauty of menswear for only one day? Wednesday 24th February is certainly going to be a date my eyes will be intensely focussing on and I am sure this year will be just as astonishing as last. All I hope (dream) for is Cole Mohr’s carved jawline ruthlessly putting it’s hardest foot forward in this years LFW (That is if he is involved in this years of course, and I for one pray he is). Designers both male and female, and men from around the world salute you, Male Fashion geniuses.
