Part three from the Liberty in Fashion exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum on Bermondsey Street. For part one see here. For part two see here. The Art of Pattern is an accompanying exhibition to the main Liberty in Fashion display and is in it's own space. It features the work of Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell. Susan became design consultant after Bernard Neville, and her sister Sarah Campbell who assisted Susan and went on to Chelsea College of art.
You may recognise the Modflowers dolls in the sea of Tana lawn prints.
Working sketch books are always a huge pleasure to peer in to.
Lots of these massive collage mood boards showed Liberty in collaboration. The board below was a set of fabrics developed from a Liberty print and customised for Yves Saint Laurent as part of a Rive Gauche collection.
I left totally inspired to use more colour in my sewing and my wardrobe. You can find out more about the exhibitions here.
