Robert Cary-Williams is an avant-garde British fashion designer.

Robert Cary-Williams studied fashion design at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, and set up his own-name label in 1998. In 1999, he won the British Fashion Council's New Generation Award.[1]

His clothes have been described as experimental, severe, "yet surprisingly wearable."[1] In 2001 he was invited to present designs from his Spring/Summer 2002 collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum for their regular "Fashion In Motion" live shows. This event, held several times a year since 1999, showcases the work of leading current fashion designers. For his presentation at the Museum, Cary-Williams showed historically inspired garments made from antique fabrics combined with leather and rusted metal.[1]
