TOPMAN’s Creative Director, Gordon Richardson, speaks fashion

Gordon Richardson, who graduated from The Royal College of Art in 1976 with a Masters Degree in menswear, has been with TOPMAN for 15 years. His main focus has been overseeing his team of 30 designers to define the trends for each season as well as ensuring all visual content is on brand. He has been integral in the inception and development of MAN – the event which TOPMAN and Fashion East started back in 2005 to showcase emerging menswear design talent. Here, Richardson shares his thoughts on style, London, and yes, the ubiquitous man bun.
