Matthew 'Dada' Williams: on working with Gaga + Kanye

Featured Posts

modern ecstasy

“She would just call me and go into a stream of consciousness on an idea or a concept. She would reference a painting or something that really inspired her and then I would riff on it and then propose ideas. We would go back and forth until it was something that she really loved.Then, I would go figure out how to make it.” -

It sounds like he was very good at taking her ideas and helping her convey them more clearly, because we know Gaga can be all over the place sometimes lol. They definitely had a special relationship, I’d love to see them work together again someday.

:giveup: I’m crying for his words, he acknowledges Gaga equal to Kanye for the great work they have done after all these years

Dada was a great part of the Haus, I agree with all of you that he helped to make the biggest Gaga iconography, I hope someday she contacts him again

The way he wrote all of that feels very wistful and nostalgic.

Now I'm feeling the same way regarding that time, oh man.

3 points in and ready for more

Wow I’m surprised this hasn’t been covered before since he was an integral part of the Haus, I’m grateful having been a fan since the beginning to see their collaborations 

Oh’ The taste of your lips I'm on a ride, You're TM06 I'm slippin' under

They worked in sync though. Nicola was her stylist and gave them in's to the big house fashion brands but Matthew basically curated all the visuals and her entire aesthetic really. with her of course.

He makes stuff with his hands starting from a crazy idea, a glue gun and some fabric. Which I really appreciate. 

Looking at his current design works and clothings it's pretty obvious which ideas were executed by Dada. He's a true designer, like Brandon (who understands designing for the female form).  Nicola is an amazing stylist, as a designer he isn't that great. 

As a team the original Haus really complemented each other. But Dada is just something else. Truly a genius.

She's never gonna call him again, and he's busy working on other stuff. I think it would be too painful for her, she was madly in love with him, Bad Romance is written about him.

It’s good to see Matt is also doing well with his label Alyx to.

I'm so happy he's doing good with Alyx. Like real good. I want him to make it big. Like Hedi Slimane/Karl big. 

He also works very closely with Kim Jones for Dior Menswear.

I agree. Except, I don't care for Brandon. I think he's a total bore, talented, but a bore. Not to be mean but just my opinion. There's no real passion that comes through his work, it's simply just well fitting female clothing. Nothing more nothing less.

Oof just got a chub. This must've been way back in the 00s, before all his tattoos. If I'm not mistaken I think he has a tattoo of gaga actually, or simply an illustration of a woman that resembles her in spirit.

I think he is passionate. His designs are not necessarily based on deconstructing ideals of what clothing is (eg Rei Kawakubo, Galliano) but rather the craft of making clothes around/for the human form. I don't think one method is better than the other. 

But they're definitely for a very specific clientele : rich white women. And for that reason his designs don't quite have the same impact as lesser talents. On the contrary having Gaga as the muse elevated his dresses, that you don't have to be demure to pull off a gown or pantsuit.
