Matthew Williamson's Global Collections
Matthew Williamson's collections are inspired by "global cultural references".
The British designer - who recently created a new line for high street store Debenhams - is influenced by art he has seen across the world and based his latest work on a piece by an artist who mixed manmade materials with nature.
He said: "One reoccurring feature - that clearly defines my brand is the use of global cultural references. For my last mainline collection I was inspired by a Russian artist, Francisco Infante-Arana, who created mirrored sculptures in wilderness landscapes.
"I love the combination of nature and synthetics and I tend to play with this juxtaposition in my colour palette, fabrics and embellishments."
Matthew - who has also recently supported children's charity NSPCC by designing T-Shirts for children to raise funds - is glad to be able to bring his creations to the high street so everyone can afford to wear his clothes.
He told Britain's OK! magazine: "I support the underlying concept behind Debenhams designer collections, which is to make high-end fashion accessible to style-conscious shoppers, no matter what their budget might be."
