As part of his appearances at MBFWA I was lucky enough to dress former reality star and IMG talent Matty J for his front row seating at Justin Cassin’s showcase in the coveted designer himself. After doing some research on the talented model turned television star and seeing his unique sense of style I worked through some of the designers archives to pull a vintage look that both had him looking Fashion Week ready and fit with his ultra cool sense of style. After working with a few different looks I was left to a fitting with the man himself where we finalised just what he would wear to the event.
Once meeting Matty and sizing him up for the fitting we played around with a few looks that offered different tailored-meets -street aesthetics and sort after a new and different looks that would elevate his current look and fit in with the uber-creative guests that would also be attending the show. We finally decided on a look that saw the newly bronzed young star wear a pair of tailored black pants and plain white tee layered with a vintage never-before-seen customed oversized wool jacket that added a textured layer to his plainly tailored look. Teaming his look with a simple pair of loafers, a plain belt and a smart Fossil watch we secured a look that ticked all the boxes and kept his sense of style while taking it to a new and unique place that offered him in a new light.
If you’re yet to see what the fabulous Matty J wore to the Justin Cassin show during MBFWA then take a look below as he was snapped behind the scenes by the amazingly talented Jayden Ostwald wearing the look as he sneaked a peak through the new range before he got to see it walk the catwalk.
