Recently I attended a fashion show by the designer Matt Gyde – he is a new up and coming designer and definitely one to watch.
About The Designer
Matt Gyde is an aspirational designer based in the midlands who creates collections around a very powerful and direct message. His brand ‘creates genderless fashion pieces that allows you to express your personality through the clothes you wear’.
He established his fashion brand in 2016 but has been working on it for a lot longer, since then he has been creating professional garments that relates to his image and persona. Matt Gyde, the designer himself has mentioned how proud he is of his fashion brand and he is very delighted he can use the way of fashion to prove everyone is truly equal!
In my opinion I can really relate to Matt as I have always been someone who has been very determined to fight for equality, it has been something that I always have and always will thrive for! I find Matt Gyde such an inspiration as all by himself his has created this fabulous collection which has such passion and power behind the meaning of the fashion brand alone.
Over the past few days I have been speaking to Matt Gyde to get behind the real passion behind his fashion brand, here’s what he had to say;
‘I’m taking away labels so nothing will be gender categorised. We only perceive clothes to be gender specific because that’s what we learn but if you look back in history and cultures throughout the world, things we class as feminine are worn by men! So it’s all about fashion being fun and wearing what we feel defines our personality and makes us feel comfortable’
“CLOTHING THAT LETS YOU BE WHO YOU ARE”
His inspiration behind his fashion brand is to be able to ‘remove the stigma of gender labelling in fashion!’
The fashion show was incredible, Matt Gyde’s collection was so good it really proved clothes should be devoted to menswear or womenswear, everyone should feel comfortable in whatever you wear. The show overall was very successful, the audience was so engaging and clearly loved the show. The entertainment was incredible too!
How amazing is Matt Gyde’s Genderless Collection, He is defiantly one to watch for the future. He has spent years producing such a powerful collection and he should be so proud of himself!
Throughout the show, there was the gorgeous Kelly singing for us and we displayed some of our last year garments which we created.
Here is Kelly during the entertainment wearing one of Matt Gyde’s garments.
Here is a few pictures from the supporting collection that students from Stafford College created last year. These collections include; First Years Earthy Minerals Outfit from last year alongside Foundation Degree’s Corsets Collection from last year.
