Dylan Jones is editor-in-chief of British GQ, the country’s premier men’s title, and the chair of London Fashion Week Men's. He has won the BSME Editor of the Year Award seven times, including five awards for his work at GQ, and has written several critically acclaimed books, including "Cameron on Cameron," and a biography of Jim Morrison. He was awarded an OBE in 2011 for services to publishing.

Jones was appointed as editor of GQ in 1999 and immediately brought on board some of the most established writers working in the industry including Dominic Lawson, Will Self, A. A. Gill, Ed Victor and Tom Wolfe. He was the first editor to put David Cameron on the cover of a magazine and employed Boris Johnson as the magazine’s motor correspondent.

He has been integral to the success of London Fashion Week Men's, and has succeeded in establishing the event on a global scale, convincing Burberry,  Alexander McQueen  and  Tom Ford , among many more, to show their collections in the city.

Jones’ journalistic career began at i-D magazine in 1983; incredibly he was made editor-in-chief of the magazine just a year later, a position he would hold until he was appointed to the same role at Arena in 1987. Concurrent to this, Jones was a contributing editor to The Face; other notable positions in his career include being associate editor at The Observer Magazine when the publication was relaunched with Simon Kelner, and a variety of positions at The Sunday Times.
