Matthew Williamson was born in England, just up north of London in Manchester. He studied at the world famous Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design after finishing college in his home town. The college has spewed out great talents since its formation, some of which include, Phoebe Philo, Paloma Faith, Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. Following in the footsteps of these very famous predecessors Matthew was able to launch his eponymous fashion brand after graduating in February of 1997.
He has shown his collections at both the London and New York fashion weeks and even went on to become the creative director at Emilio Pucci. His career has been critically acclaimed as he also won the “Red Carpet” designer award at the British Fashion Awards in 2008. A lot of famous faces have also been spotted in his designs include the multi-talented award winning singer, actress and mother of one Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.
Matthew Williamson is also on the list of designers who have lent their collections to be marketed under the Linda Farrow brand and name. This has been a good move on his part as he has joined other designer like Dries Van Noten on the journey to rebrand their eyewear collections. His eyewear is uniquely stunning and comes in a wide range of styles, colours and materials. Just browsing the catalogue is enough to make anyone see why he is so successful at what he does as well as how he has managed to earn a legion of loyal fans.
