MEET UP-AND-COMING FIL-AM MENSWEAR DESIGNER SHAUN SAMSON

At the Juun.J show I spotted this young Asian guy wearing this really rad outfit. I took his photo for Status Magazine's Street Style section and then we sat down and chit-chatted. Meet Shaun Samson. He's an up-and-coming Fil-Am menswear designer based in London. At that time he was in Paris for the RA presentation where he participated along with other indie designers.
Here's Shaun talking about his label, aesthetic, collaborations, latest collection and the Philippines...

I totally love meeting new designers because they're full of fresh ideas and great energy. I have seen Shaun's work online. Very very promising indeed! Based from what I have seen so far I have to say that this boy has loads of talent. He recently made some buzz at the RA presentation in Paris for his casual 90s grunge Spring Summer 2012 collection. Can't wait to see the entire collection. I will try to request it from his PR people.

Anyway, I'm just glad to report to everybody that there are so many talented Filipinos in the field of fashion internationally. We should be happy that these individuals are making waves to put our country on the map.
