Raised on an Iowa pig farm, Matthew Christopher was more likely to pick corn than pick fine Italian silk to create couture gowns. But, enthralled by fashion, Matthew began grabbing glamour magazines in the local grocery store. Inspired by what he saw, he began to sew with his grandmothers. After studying fashion design at what is now the Art Institute of Chicago, he struck out to make a name for himself in New York City. In 2002, with his wealth of experience at various bridal companies, he founded his own label. For the past 13 years, Matthew's gowns have featured modern elegance combined with classic glamour. From hand-drawn, organic beading to show stopping silhouettes, Matthew creates drama in every detail.
