Tinie Tempah and PM 'hit it off' over men's fashion


Last year, menswear sales worldwide grew by 10%, so rather than an afterthought crammed into a single day at the end of London Fashion Week, men's fashion now has its own week-long showcase.

Sitting in the front row of the catwalk show, music artist Tinie Tempah said he had been a fan of the designer Richard James for some time.

"A lot of very prominent influential men wear Richard James. I remember being in No 10 Downing Street, I was with the prime minister". He said: "What do you have on?".

"I said Richard James, and he said 'snap!'"
