Matthew Needham is a designer and up cyclist based in London, England. A graduate of MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins supported both by the British Fashion Council and the Kering Sustainability Fund, Needham’s work reflects fashion’s yearning for radical ideas, as he utilises experimental craft that’s not only innovative but examines object value.

Up-cycling fly-tipped waste and using dead-stock from luxury fashion houses are inherent within this process, having previously honed his skills of textile innovation and construction at Maisons such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
From dressing environmental advocates such as actress, Emma Watson, to working closely with the global movement that is Fashion Revolution, Needham has been radicalising the conversation we have with clothing.

Matthew has been featured in publications such as Vogue UK, Vogue Talents, The Guardian, iD, Vice, Dazed & Confused, 10 Magazine, Hunger and Milk with collaborations including Helen Kirkum, Alice Potts, Jo Miller and Charles Jeffrey's LOVERBOY.
