Antonio Vattev, founder of av vattev, established his eponymous brand in 2020 following his graduation from Central Saint Martins. 

With a distinguished background in the fashion industry, Antonio previously worked as a designer for Saint Laurent and gained valuable experience through internships with Lanvin and Wales Bonner.

Currently serving as an artist in residence for

SARABANDE 2023 - 2024,

Antonio is committed to elevating fashion into a storytelling medium.

av vattev's creative ethos revolves around exploring the intersections of culture, history, and style to craft timeless pieces that both captivate and inspire. Originating from the heart of Bulgaria and influenced by the dynamic streets of London, the brand's essence reflects a

harmonious blend of Antonio's homeland heritage and the eclectic culture of the British capital.

This unique fusion of cultural elements intertwines seamlessly with Antonio's commitment to community and his profound interest in the interplay of artistic

expressions such as music, performance, and the visual arts.

av vattev celebrates the modern, urban man, embodying a distinctive style that resonates with contemporary sensibilities.

Recognizing the responsibility of fashion as an art form, av vattev actively incorporates extensive use of alternative low-impact materials for both finished products and packaging.

Each season, the brand strives to utilize more than 70% deadstock, recycled, and organic materials.
