NEW YORK Fash­ion Week: Men’s, the first-ever event of its kind in New York City, had the Big Ap­ple’s fash­ion­ists as out in throngs.

Launched by The Coun­cil of Fash­ion De­sign­ers of Amer­ica, it was a stand­alone show­case for Amer­i­can men’s fash­ion, with Spring/Sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tions.

The four-day ex­trav­a­ganza, which ran from July 13-16, fea­tured big-name de­sign­ers, ex­cit­ing run­way shows, pre­sen­ta­tions, and hordes of male mod­els.

Ja­maican de­signer Glen­roy March pre­sented his new col­lec­tion Sig­na­ture Glen­roy by D’Marsh, which had fash­ion­istas talk­ing long af­ter the show about the de­signs and the co­he­sion of the col­lec­tion.

March tells Out­look that the col­lec­tion was inspired by the en­er­gies of mas­culin­ity and fem­i­nin­ity which has al­ways been the DNA of D’Marsh Men. “This par­tic­u­lar col­lec­tion was inspired

by ar­chi­tec­ture, given the clean lines and shapes. The col­lec­tion’s print was inspired by our spon­sor Coco Mat – a recog­nised leader for nat­u­ral sleep prod­ucts.”

He noted that events such as New York Fash­ion Week: Men’s, are very im­por­tant to him as a de­signer as a high per­cent­age of the brand’s rev­enue comes from their men’s col­lec­tion. So hav­ing a ded­i­cated stage presents greater busi­ness and part­ner­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties. He re­lays to Out­look that the ex­pe­ri­ence was amaz­ing. “It was amaz­ing! We at­tracted a num­ber of the top in­dus­try ed­i­tors. In fact, one GQ editor com­mented, ‘it was one of the best pre­sen­ta­tions all sea­son.’ This col­lec­tion could be seen as a re­nais­sance of my ca­reer.”

March notes that, over the years, his growth as a de­signer has been re­flected in the de­signs, a growth he owes to his ex­pe­ri­ence and global trav­els which have im­pacted his craft. “I have also had an op­por­tu­nity to work with a more di­verse clien­tele.”

And what’s next for the Ja­maicaborn de­signer?

“We have just launched the men’s cos­met­ics line, which com­prises the body cream, shower gel and body scrub. And I’ve be­gun work­ing on my Spring 2016 col­lec­tion for New York Fash­ion Week in Septem­ber.”

Here is a look at the col­lec­tion Sig­na­ture Glen­roy by D’Marsh.
