Mathieu’s passion for confection and design started at a very early age thanks to his Grandmother who was a seamstress. Little Mathieu grew up looking at the needle go through the fabric and, when he turned seven he had already created his first designs.


Born in French Provence, he is among the few designers who, to this day, have cultivated the most and the best mentors in the fashion world. He had a one of a kind privilege to study as an apprentice for Azzedine Alaïa and to work in his "Atelier Couture Flou". Later, he worked at Maison John Galliano where he learnt the most delicate techniques of French couture.


Graduated from the "Académie Internationale de Coupe de París" with a Fashion Design Degree, nowadays Mathieu Matachaga works in the creation of his own brand which is proudly named after himself.
