Matthew Williamson Book
By Colin McDowell with foreword by Sienna Miller
Introduction by Matthew Williamson
“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
The forthcoming Matthew Williamson book will cover the designers work, life and achievements in a definitive volume published by internationally renowned publisher Rizzoli. This lavishly illustrated monograph celebrates the collaborations Matthew has executed over the years with seminal artists, photographers, architects and designers, and features word and image contributions from luminaries of the fashion world, including Alexandra Shulman, Anna Wintour, Zandra Rhodes, Joan Burstein and Sir Paul Smith.
Written by fashion historian Colin McDowell, the book offers an overview of Matthew’s personal journey along side that of the brand. Chapters included also explore the design process, the application of Matthew’s design aesthetic within interiors and revisits iconic garments from the archive.
The book will be sold internationally from Monday 18th October and will be accompanied by a display at the recently reinvigorated centre for visual arts, Somerset House, in London.
