Creative Director for Matthew Adams Dolan

New York City


  • Dolan was born in an old town in Massachusetts.

  • Dolan went to high school in rural japan, studied French literature in Switzerland and got his undergraduate degree in Australian – I think it is safe to say he has a worldly side to him.

  • After studying around the world, Dolan came back to the US where he enrolled in Parson’s Master of Fine Arts program.

  • Dolans first collection was spring summer 2015.

  • One of Dolan’s biggest fans is Badgalriri herself who often sports Dolan’s denim frocks.

  • According to Dolan, he likes to pay tribute to his New England roots in his collections by including “archetypes of American style” and it’s development throughout time.

  • Dolan takes his ode to American style one step further by questioning it, and what it represents.

  • Adams most recent collection is intended to be unisex –forward-thinking and versatile!
