Matthew Williamson has donated one of his designs to charity.

The British designer - whose celebrity fans include the Duchess of Cambridge - has gifted his Tokyo Blossom Crepe Dechine Utility Column bespoke print dresses to the Kids Company Mad Hatters silent auction, which will be held in London next Wednesday (02.05.12).

The star studded charity event - to be hosted by The Hub - will also feature donations including a red Saffiano lux bag from Prada and a bag from Max Mara with sponsorship from Reiss, Moet and the Morgan Hotel Group.

Guests expected to attend the exclusive auction include models David Gandy and Lily Cole, 'Contagion' star Gwyneth Paltrow, music producer Mark Ronson and fashion designer Stella Mccartney.

Funds raised will go to Kids Company which provides practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children.

Matthew recently revealed he was star struck the first time Jade Jagger called up to ask to buy one of his skirts after seeing it in Vogue magazine.

He said: ''Jade Jagger called asking if she could have the skirt, and there was [partner] Joseph Velosa on the phone to her discussing prices. I didn't know who he was talking to, then he wrote her name down on a piece of paper so I could see, and I just grabbed the phone from him and said: 'Of course, you can have the bloody skirt.' We're still like that with each today, which is probably why we're still in business.''
