Row over Williamson's African fashion imprints

Jan '08
Matthew Williamson, the British celebrity designer, whose achievement have been recognized by the fashion industry consistently for several years, is disappointed as Ethiopia's Intellectual Property Office conveyed their annoyance over replication of their traditional prints in his creations.

The designer has imprinted these African-inspired designs in his Spring Summer 2008 collection. The Ethiopian Government launched an inquiry against him to protect their national costume.

In order to defend Matthew Williamson, his spokesperson, in a statement, said, “Historically, Matthew Williamson bases his collections on the idea of a modern girl who is a global traveler. Her style is in part defined by incorporating many different cultures, traditions and customs."

It was further stressed, "The spring-summer 2008 season was particularly inspired by the idea of modernizing and celebrating certain traditional African fabrics and costumes.”
