Matty Bovan joins Fashion East’s SS17 sizzling showcase

Avant-garde avatar Matty Bovan just snagged a spot on the London fashion map at premier incubator Fashion East. He’s known for fronting fierce transgressive looks as well as starring in a few Marc Jacobs campaigns alongside gal pal and sexy songstress Sky Ferreira. Matty debuted his razzle dazzle gear last year at CSM tapping into a punk-cum-Warholian-DIY aesthetic. While countless offbeat designers describe their work as “artisanal” or “alt beauty,” Matty exemplifies both. Gaining a rep for his fantastical weirdness, smart experimentation and sculptural tricks, he has been boggling fashion brains with his bang up colorways, exotic textures combined with clay; neon and lurex combos and outré knitwear. This September he will showcase his jazzy get-ups in conjunction with Fashion East’s SS17 showcase. “I’m super thrilled to be showing my new collection with Fashion East,” Matty told VIVISXN. I’m proud to be part of an amazing platform that has nurtured countless talents like Meadham Kirchhoff, J.W.Anderson, Craig Green, Jonathan Saunders, Simone Rocha, Claire Barrow, Ashley Williams, Wales Bonner, etc. It’s an honor.” Since graduating from CSM, Matty has won the LVMH prize, worked on the design team at Louis Vuitton, made prints with Marc Jacobs, collaborated Miu Miu and won the L’Oreal Proffessionnel Creative Award. Whoa! Along with Richard Malone, AV Robertson, and Mimi Wade, Matty will show at Old Spitalfields Market in London’s East End on September 17. We can’t wait!  Congrats, Matty! 😛
