"It is an incredible opportunity to be working with H&M, creating a 'Matthew Williamson for H&M' capsule collection. I love the fact that H&M have created a new phenomenon in fashion through the pioneering concept of collaborating with high-end designers to create one-off limited edition capsule collections. I am thrilled that my creations for H&M will be accessible to and hopefully enjoyed by so many people around the world," says Matthew Williamson.
Since his first collection launched in 1997, Matthew Williamson has brought the party lifestyle of the global traveler to the catwalk, an Ibizan spirit of colour and freedom that he now shows at New York Fashion Week. Celebrities such as Sienna Miller, Keira Knightley, Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow wear his clothes regularly. Last year he was honoured with an exhibition at the Design Museum in London, "Matthew Williamson - 10 Years in Fashion". For his 10th anniversary, he brought his collection back to Britain and showcased his pieces with a live performance by Prince.
