about

Matthew Williamson Company was founded in February 1997 by designer, Matthew Williamson and CEO, Joseph Velosa.

In September 1997 Matthew Williamson showed his infamous debut collection, ‘Electric Angels’, during London Fashion Week. Bias cut dresses and separates in exotic shades of tangerine, fuchsia and magenta were worn by models Kate Moss, Helena Christensen and Jade Jagger. This unique collection of bright, intricately detailed pieces defined and set the pace for the highly recognisable Matthew Williamson signature aesthetic.

Following his first show, Matthew Williamson’s collections have continued to grow and gather momentum, cementing his reputation as one of the UK’s leading designer talents. In February 2002, Matthew showed his first collection during New York Fashion Week. This transition expanded opportunities within the press and attracted a wider audience commercially. The company now produces 4 women’s wear collections annually. Matthew Williamson is sold in approximately 150 stores worldwide and also has an award-winning flagship store on Bruton Street, London.

In April 2005 Matthew Williamson unveiled his first fragrance with great success. This has been followed by 4 individual fragrances. Collectively labelled as “The Collection”, these individual fragrances launched in February 2007.

In 2005, in recognition of his talent with colour and print, Matthew Williamson was appointed Creative director of Emilio Pucci, the luxury Italian fashion house, now owned by LVMH.

2007 marks the 10 year anniversary for Matthew Williamson.
