Matthew Williamson Book

British Fashion Designer Matthew Williamson is the subject of a new book by internationally renowned publishing house Rizzoli which was released on the 18th October 2010.

The book is a definitive volume, exploring Matthew’s life, work and achievements. It is a wholly absorbing experience of riotous colour.

Dean’s contribution to the book is a picture of Matthew in his home. Matthew sits amongst his interesting bright and colourful study, it’s clear to see all his influences, including the Indian inspired colour pallet that permeates into his work for the likes of Pucci and his own eponymous label.

The Book comprises of numerous photographs by the worlds top fashion photographers. Images of shows, collections, and even personal snapshots and sketches by Matthew himself are contained within its pages. Colin McDowell; the author of the book, chronicles Matthews career, from his debut collection, ‘Electric Angels’ to his 10-year anniversary show giving a unique insight into the life of one of Britain’s most celebrated designers.

Dean was kindly invited along to the book’s launch on Tuesday 12th October at Somerset house. A concurrent exhibition is being held there until January 2011, featuring images from the book. Here’s what Matthew Williamson said about the night:

"This book feels like a new chapter in my life, it was so personal to me. It is amazing to be here with all my close friends.”
