Fashion designer Matthew Williamson tapped his celebrity friends to create their own version of the traditional Christmas tree ornament for a charity campaign.

Some of the celebrities and designers who contributed their designs include renowned architect Zaha Hadid, artist Mary J Blige, actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Sienna Miller, designer Polly Morgan, artist Matt Collishaw, and more.


Each ornament is different and unique. Zaha Hadid’s piece is a green 3D-printed item resembling a Christmas tree with cut holes. Polly Morgan’s ornament is a blue ball being pecked at by a woodpecker. Williamson’s own piece is covered in black and white feathers and small metal balls with beads. All pieces bear the signature of their designer on the ribbon or on the surface of the ornament.

The ornaments are on display at Aqua Shard, a restaurant located on the 31st floor of The Shard building in London, and are being auctioned off on eBay. Proceeds of the auction will be donated to children’s charity Kids Company.
