Congratulations Matthew Conmy

Dean Stadel, presenting the YMA Scholarship Program $5000 each. Winners: Julie Anderson, Matthew Comny

Some designers get it all, and Matthew Conmy seems to have it all right now! He is as talented as it comes and is getting the recognition he deserves. He recently won not one but THREE significant awards:  first a $5,000 YMA Scholarship award, then he was selected to represent Parsons in competition for one of four $25,000 Geoffrey Beene awards. And in addition to those he also won the Saga Furs, Furnovation Contest, which includes a one week trip to the Saga Design Center in Denmark to study Fur technique for one week in August.
Congratulations Matt! Now here is a sneak peek into his menswear collection and a short interview with the budding star!
