Today Matt Kasin’s much anticipated new GaudyGod.com website is launching. You’ll be able to find all things Gaudy God here, but don’t forget to follow him on his Tumblr to see what inspires him. Matt has been one of my favorite street-style subjects since the very beginning of this website. I was super excited to  photograph his nail designs for the Refinery29 story, “14 Nail Art Snaps that Give Us Major Envy because I knew it’d give me an excuse to photograph his street style too. Several of the nail designs featured were painted by him. Although Matt is best known for selling vintage clothes and original designs under the Gaudy God label, he’s also a manicurist at the Strange Beauty Show salon just south of Division on Ashland.
