The collection features sequinned mini dresses in tones of blush, pink and lilac, as well as layered low-high midi dresses. It also includes a floor sweeping nude sequined gown with Aztec neon accents, and a botanical print split front maxi dress in bold purple and fuchsia pink.

Williamson says: "I have always enjoyed dressing women for events – dressing women who are going out to have fun and dance the night away is something I love. With this collection of dresses I wanted to inject a powerful femininity, as well as fun, into women’s wardrobes. Collaborating with Debenhams is a really exciting opportunity for me as I can now dress women up and down the country for special events and memorable occasions."

Williamson has been a part of Designers at Debenhams since 2002. The new collection retails from £110, and will be available in stores and online from May 15.

The designer recently also teamed up with fashion e-tailer Lyst on an exclusive capsule collection inspired by Morocco.
