Founded in 2016 by close friends Luca Lin and Galeb Gassanof, Act n°1 is a brand whose purpose is to tell a story. The name is meant to reference the stages of a story and in this case, the stages of their lives. The two designers are young, but have quickly gained traction with their boundary pushing womenswear. Characterized by advanced printwork and meticulous detailing, each collection brings some new element to aid in further developing the story of Act n°1. Though the brand is young, they have an impressive catalogue of collections and capsules that have shown clear development since its inception. With a cosign from Vogue Italia in 2017, the two show no signs of slowing down.
