Thandie helps king of boho celebrate ten years in fashion

17 OCTOBER 2007

British beauty and Hollywood star Thandie Newton was on hand this week to honour Matthew Williamson at Londonís Design Museum, which is hosting a retrospective of the designer's work. The Ten Years In Fashion exhibition shows examples of the signature eclectic-ethnic style which over the last decade has won him an A-list fan base that includes Sienna Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Keira Knightley and Demi Moore.

Manchester-born Matthew launched himself on the fashion scene in 1997, with no financial backing, shortly after graduating from Central St Martins. He achieved a major coup by having Kate Moss and Jade Jagger model at his London Fashion Week debut and now has a globally-recognised label, a store in Mayfair and another soon to open in Manhattan.

The designer Ė who recently returned to the British capital after five years in New York Ė feels his work is perfectly suited to a museum. "What I do is an art form," he says. "There is the same integrity involved as in any other art discipline. You start with a blank page and an open mind."
