Matthew Williamson - New York Spring 2009
(NEW YORK) Matthew Williamson opened his Spring 2009 show with a sharply tailored hot pink suit—an unusual choice for a designer that built his reputation initially with flowing empire-waisted gowns. No one was disappointed, however: bevies of PYTs like Kelly Osbourne, Petra Nemcova, Julia Stiles, and Joy Bryant lined up runway-side, undoubtably to pick out their next-season party clothes. Bryant even brought her camera along to snap photos of her favorites, like a salmon strapless minidress with beaded pockets. He showed more classic-Matthew looks, like psychedelic prints, along with on-trend pieces like the now-ubiquitous jumpsuit, and closed his show with stunning dresses with bunches of chiffon flowers.
