One of the absolute highlights of Londons fashion week was the very strong showing of Samuel Ross’s new A-COLD-WALL* SS19 collection. With his innovative designs of creative cuts and functional details is was ACW's most accomplished show to date and cemented Ross's position as one of the strongest designers of the moment. A position also shared by the LVMH board members who made Ross a semifinalist for the prestigious LVMH award for young designers this year.
