Matthew Williamson is world-renowned for his highly recognisable signature aesthetic.
A master of print, embellishment and kaleidoscopic colour, the collections reflect a refined yet spirited sense of glamour, inspired by global and artistic influences.
Matthew Williamson was born in Manchester in 1971. He grew up and studied there until the age of 17, when he was offered a place on the fashion degree course at Central Saint Martins College, London. Matthew graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA in Fashion Design and Printed Textiles in 1994.
Matthew Williamson Ltd was founded in February 1997 by Matthew and Joseph Velosa. Matthew showed his acclaimed debut collection, ‘Electric Angels’, at London Fashion Week in September 1997.
Matthew’s debut show of only fourteen vibrantly coloured looks worn by models including Kate Moss, Helena Christensen and Jade Jagger made a huge impact on the fashion world, showcasing a taster of what was to come in the years to follow.
We have all Matthew Williamsons wallpaper collections on display, including his latest, “Durbar” which conjures up images of India with a vibrant, contemporary twist.
