Matthew Williamson Launches New Site
The fashion designer’s website has gotten a makeover! It will feature five news stories per week under the tab MW Daily, where the designer will include sections on favorite items from the line, key pieces from the season and more. “The day has come when you can create your own voice, your own press, and not have to rely on reacting to the press,” said Williamson. “And it’s a way for customers to learn about the brand — even if they’re not shopping.” Check out the cool, new site for yourself!
