Matthew WilliamsonDESIGNER NAME: Matthew Williamson
 
BACKGROUND: 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 CEO, 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.
 
SIGNATURES: "My collections are known for their print, embellishment, attention to detail and kaleidoscopic colour. The designs encapsulate a bohemian spirit and a laid back sense of glamour."

TRADEMARK: “I would say an evening dress in my signature style – combining colour, print and embellishment!”
 
IDEAL CLIENT: “Anyone who loves my clothes! I don’t design with a particular look or age in mind as it’s obvious from working in my stores that my clothes are worn by all different types of people. The Matthew Williamson woman is feminine and sexy, fun and free-spirited, with a laid-back approach to glamour.”

COLLECTION: "I was drawn to the glamorous women of the 1970s: patterns, textures and a rich palette capture the optimism and exuberant spirit of this era."

WHAT MAKES LONDON WOMENSWEAR SO EXCITING? "It's the melting pot of new talent and established brands. London is renowned for innovation in all fields, and British designers feed off this, constantly striving for the new."

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO IN YOUR STUDIO? "Chvrches and Elliphant."
