Matty Bovan graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2015 with an MA specialising in Fashion Knitwear, his final show, exhibiting a cacophony of sculptural knits, textures and wild, handmade adornments, which earned him the L'Oréal Professionnel Creative Award, closely followed by the LVMH Graduate Prize 2015.  He has worked with brands including Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu.

His Autumn/Winter 2017 collection saw a significant focus on knit, with many of the pieces built from rectangular sections of wool; some knitted or crocheted by hand, and others produced on an old Eighties knitting machine using punch cards to create repeat motifs, often in deliberately clashing colours and textures.  Two preoccupations drove its development; one was the designer's interest in medieval history, which he ascribes to growing up in the ancient city of York, and the other was science-fiction films set in dystopian futures.
