The gentleman’s code
Today, Museum of London, 5pm
Menswear designer Carolyn Massey speaks about her interpretation of the 'gentleman' in her mainline and Topman collections, based on her research into our archives. Based in London, Carolyn completed her MA at the Royal College of Art in 2005 and started her own label in June 2006. Her work focuses upon the sartorial code of 'what it is to be a gentleman' and how this has been appropriated during times of social or civil unrest. The Carolyn Massey mainline label exhibits seasonally in Paris during Mens Fashion Week through easternBlock showroom and corresponding presentations are held through London Fashion Week. Carolyn has also started production on her third diffusion line collection for Topman.
