Christopher Shannon's big win

Ahead of London Collections: Men

Are you ready? London Collections: Men kick starts this weekend, with fashion’s most influential converging on the capital to see what everyone from JW Anderson to Jonathan Saunders have cooked up for s/s 2015.

Christopher Shannon already has reason to celebrate. The designer has just been awarded the BFC/GQ Menswear Fund 2014, beating fellow nominees Christopher Raeburn, E. Tautz, Lou Dalton and Richard Nicoll. And he didn’t just bag himself a trophy; the prize includes a £150,000 grant to help build his business as well as a year-long mentoring programme to help him on his way.
