DAPPER DIPLOMACY: The British Fashion Council has named Hu Bing — the Chinese actor, model, singer and philanthropist — as the first international ambassador for London Collections: Men. He will join a lineup that includes David Gandy, Dermot O’Leary, Nick Grimshaw and Tinie Tempah and help to champion British designers and attend runway show in London.

Dylan Jones, chair of London Collections: Men said Bing’s “enormous influence, knowledge of the Chinese market, and enthusiasm for fashion makes him a perfect choice. Having an international ambassador in China is key to the development of London Collections: Men.” The next edition is scheduled for June 12 to 15.
