For the love of Liberty

This year Liberty is turning the ripe old age of 140 and to celebrate the occasion the Fashion and Textile Museum are hosting an exhibition, Liberty in Fashion.  The exhibition charts Liberty’s evolution throughout the years and explores how their style became so iconic, with their distinctive textile prints and instantly recognisable floral patterns.

Liberty in Fashion opens today and runs until 28th February, but we were lucky enough to get a sneaky preview earlier this week. The exhibition is made up of nine key sections, showcasing fashion from their humble beginnings selling imported exotic silks from the Far East, to the infamous swinging sixties in London, as well as their modern collaborations with designers such as Anna Sui, Acne and Nike to name a few.
