Matthew Gallagher is a Toronto-based womenswear designer who was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia and educated in Milan, Italy. After graduating from Milan's Istituto Europeo di Design in 2012, Gallagher relocated back to Canada and launched his line Maison Matthew Gallagher at World MasterCard Fashion Week in 2013.
Maison Matthew Gallagher arose from a dream and desire for a modern vision of opulence. Sophistication and enchantment run deep in the identity of the brand as polish and precision intertwine to define a contemporary idea of beauty while preserving its traditional essence. The strength of the Maison Matthew Gallagher line is that it does not simply end with cut or design, quality runs deep in textiles and hand work. Gallagher imports most of his fabrics from Italy to achieve a rooted sense of luxury and connection to one of the brands major points of inspiration.
Gallagher combines minimalism and elegance to intrigue and reveal a beautiful, unexpected harmony. The brand allure is defined by beautifully aligned contradiction which summons what is Maison Matthew Gallagher.
