I can’t reveal much here because it’s not my story to tell, but my collaborator Shaun Samson did give me some hints of interested buyers and brands who are either hoping to stock his collection or work with him in other ways. There were definitely some impressive names and I’ll be watching his progress in 2012 very closely indeed…
