Shaun Samson is a California-born British-trained menswear designer launching his label under his own namesake in 2011. His personality and approach comes from growing up in the laid-back suburban surf-Mecca of San Diego, where throughout his youth he was inspired by the surrounding myriad of street-styles.
With a strong desire to pursue design, Samson moved to Los Angeles where he successfully completed his first AA in Fashion Design. He continued further studies in Manufacturing and Product Development under scholarship at FIDM. Samson's passion then led him to pursue further design education at Central St. Martins, earning a BA and MA degree in Fashion Menswear. Samson maintained an industry presence and worked for Jeremy Scott throughout his degree.
Samson quotes that he designs ‘Men's Modern Streetwear.' His design style is masculine, relaxed, and has an essence of the sartorial. He believes the modern mans' wardrobe should be wearable, effortless and special.
