David McGovern grew up in rural Ireland, making his way to London after years in Dublin and more recently New York. He began his M.A. in Fashion Media Production at London College of Fashion in late 2012.

McGovern has written for and assisted at Visionaire, V Magazine and Dossier, and worked for American Apparel in various roles, including visual merchandising and press.

Upon starting his M.A, McGovern finally found a love for filmmaking. His first foray into fashion film, 'Someone Who Needs Something', was selected for the London Short Film Festival 2013 in the Fashion Popcorn category.

Currently McGovern is interning at Nowness while working on a series of fashion films entitled 'Things Find You'.
