When I step into one of Matthew's dresses I feel like I am stepping into his world, which is colourful, ethereal and dreamlike.
- Sienna Miller
Somerset House hosted a display of Matthew Williamson's work, to coincide with the publication of his book. The display animated aspects of the book and featured photographs and key quotes from contributors, offering a unique insight into the life of one of the most original and exciting fashion designers working today.
The book, published by Rizzoli, celebrates Williamson's colour-drenched creations embellished with exquisite embroidery and beading. Photographs of Williamson's textile designs, celebrity fashion shoots, and mood boards, sketches and scrapbooks reveal his influences and inspirations. Key players such as Sir Paul Smith, Diane Von Furstenburg, Zandra Rhodes, Anna Wintour, Editor of US Vogue and Lucy Yeomans, editor of Harpers Bazaar provide comment on the success of the brand.
