Thom Murphy is an artist, stylist, designer and consultant. Murphy made his name in the nineties as an innovative menswear stylist. He met the photographer Jason Evans whilst assisting on a Diesel show, who later introduced him to Terry Jones at i-D magazine. He created shoots for the title for years afterwards, collaborating with Evans and Alasdair McLellan in particular, as well as for Sleaze Nation and Second Generation. During this time, he was also working closely with David Sims for Arena Homme Plus.
In 2009, Murphy launched menswear label New Power Studio. Using street cast models and a DIY approach which included hand painted Reebok Classics and second-hand clothes, the label merged tailoring with sportswear and streetwear. Murphy closed down New Power Studio in 2012 to pursue a degree in fine art at Goldsmiths.
In 2018, Murphy was named the Fashion Design Menswear Pathway Leader at Central Saint Martins.
