A dedicated follower of fashion from Chester has been taking London Fashion Week by storm in a new role as judge and ambassador.

Matthew O’Brien, 23, was on Britain’s Top Designer in last week’s London Fashion week.

The final was held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Holborn, London, with a VIP  after-show party at the glamorous  Buddha-Bar Restaurant London, in Knightsbridge.

Matthew took to the catwalk with a special runway show of his autumn winter collection.

Entering fashion at the young age of 15,  Matthew started his first clothing label being dubbed The Boy in the Bedroom.

The clothing label, called mang, started  from a bedroom and was an instant success, bringing in sponsorship deals with international pro wakeboarders to exclusive nightclubs along with the Cheshire Jets.

Focusing on menswear, he was able to develop his design aesthetic leading him into womenswear where he was able to excel.
