Fashion historian Colin McDowell is to write a new book on designer Matthew Williamson with contributions from a range of celebrities
Matthew Williamson is to be the subject of a new book.
'Matthew Williamson' will follow the British-born fashion designer's journey from his debut collection in 1997 up to his present day global success.
Written by fashion historian Colin McDowell the book will be lavishly decorated in Williamson's trademark vibrant colours and patterns.
Released in October, the tome will be accompanied by an exhibition at Somerset House in central London, which will run until January 2011.
The exhibition will launch with a party on October 12 where the central courtyard of Somerset House will be made over in a Matthew Williamson theme.
