Reuel Matthew (suit designer) started "Egami" in 2016 by launching a private fall fashion week event at Capsule studio in NYC showcasing his Spring/Summer SS'16 couture suit line. His inaugural private event, aimed at engaging his community, ended up attracting musicians, wealthy buyers, athletes, and celebrities who Matthew would take on as private clients and would be the start of a lucrative custom tailoring business.
Matthew continues to dress professionals, politicians, athletes, and celebrities mainly in New York, but is steadily developing an overseas demand for his suit designs with plans of doing shows in London, Tokyo and Dubai in the near future. Matthew is known as the "master of the bespoke women's suit" being one of the only tailors offering custom women's suits, working with the best tailors internationally, having apprenticed at a young age under his mother who is a career seamstress and piano teacher from Trinidad and Tobago and being mentored by the likes of fashion and entertainment icons such as Henry Picardo, Malena Belafonte, John Thomas "JT" and Carline D. Reed.
