Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Colin McDowell's Matthew Williamson offers an inside look at the British designer's colorful creations, with a foreword by longtime fan and friend Sienna Miller" ~Harper's Bazaar

"His bold, beautiful, and subtly bohemian designs have made him a favorite of boho chic icons like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss, and Sienna Miller (who penned the book's foreword), and his first monograph captures the design darling's energy with shots of his runway shows, fittings, advertising photos, and behind-the-scenes imagery." ~OUT

"From his outrageously decorated teenage bedroom, to an innovative and international multi-million dollar empire, Matthew Williamson by Colin McDowell offers a unique insight into the life of one of the most original and exciting designers working today.  Each chapter opens with a note from industry style setters and key players.  Matthew Williamson is a must-have for fashion forward women everywhere and anyone interested in fashion design and contemporary fashion culture." ~All the Best blog

“Perhaps the mind of a creative genius is best revealed through the eyes of another. That appears to be the case for the new book Matthew Williamson, which explores the life and career of the British designer through the lens of fashion historian Colin McDowell.” ~CITY Magazine
 
“Matthew Williamson is one of the greatest designers of our generation.” ~Haute Miami
