Matthew Williamson - Three Cities with Three Muses

British Fashion Designer Matthew Williamson made time to party with his favourite muses in London , LA and New York.

He celebrated his recent ‘Designer of the Year’ award at the Genlux Brit Week in LA with US-based presenter Cat Deeley, who stepped in to present the designer and long time friend with his award. Wearing a signature printed cocktail dress from his new A/W range, Matthew commented that ‘Cat epitomises the laid back glamour that is quintessentially LA’

He moved swiftly onto New York, where he celebrated the launch of an exclusive caftan, created especially for premium vodka brand Belvedere, with the hot model of the campaign and NY DJ Leigh Lezark (who happens to be gracing the cover of Turkish Vogue this month).

Next, in celebration of Pink Grapefruit, the newest addition to the popular Belvedere Maceration range, Leigh sported a limited-edition piece was ‘inspired by sultry summer evenings.
"... who I choose as the campaign model because of her unique style which I have admired ever since we met"

Finally, Williamson touched down in London, where he spent the night with his original muse, Sienna Miller.   Sienna wore the beautiful Gold foiled twist dress (right) from the A/W10 runway collection. The evening started with an intimate party in his Mayfair flagship store. They were later joined by the actresses’ sister Savannah where the trio partied on at Sketch ... there was even some dancing on tables until the early hours.
