"Liberty In Fashion" At The Fashion & Textile Museum Opens Tomorrow

i was invited to preview the wonderful exhibition
at the 
this past monday.

i fell in love

it's a story of the legendary shop liberty. a store found by arthur lasenby liberty 140 years ago. arthur's ambition was to create new fashion rather than follow the existing styles. the development of liberty "art colours" and the production of its own fabrics in great britian ensured that his vision would become reality. 

such an entrepreneur 

 if you are in london anytime from tomorrow to february 28th 2016, go devour:))) 

such inspirations! such millions to learn from a visionary.

here are some amazing inspirations i captured (with not the best functioning iphone) at this beautifully curated exhibition.  for my own use/ inspiration for later use in regards to various projects i am working on. 

my fave spot was at the top floor. i met with the wonderfully talented sarah campbell whom has created this space called "the art of pattern" which features the work she did together with her sister susan collier ( 1937-2011) during the years 1961-77 for liberty in london prints.
