Liberty in Fashion Exhibition

This Saturday, I went to visit the “Liberty In Fashion” exhibition at the Fashion and Textiles Museum  in London. Being a big fan of vintage and antique products, it was great to see some of their oldest pieces from the 1950’s. I saw how detailed and beautiful the embroidery on the dresses were and simply fell in love with the craft work put into it.  Arthur Lazenby Liberty, the founder of Liberties was greatly influenced by the Aesthetic movement,  a movement that ran between the 1860’s and the 1880’s. This movement grew during the Industrialisation era and highly promoted craftsmanship and quality, exactly what I believe in. Many turned their attention towards the decorative arts, they looked back at Classical Greece and current Japanese art. My new project this term is to create quality embroidery samples for fashion, Interior and Art Textiles whiles studying one specific artist and an archive piece of work. This visit turned out to be exactly what I needed to get some inspiration and motivation.

Turns out I arrive half an hour before the museum actually opened, talk about being over organised… So to pass the time I walked into a few galleries that were on the same street and had a coffee in this little tea room. Cute decor don’t you think!

The Museum, as you can guess from the name, specialises in Textiles and Fashion and holds about 3 exhibitions a year. So for Fashion and Textiles students, this is defiantly a museum to keep up to date with. They also do talks by current designers and historians which are always great, I haven’t attended one of their’s yet but I am definitely planning on doing so soon.

This exhibition finishes on the 28th of February, so with plenty of time ahead to plan, there is no reason why you should miss it! I’m also very exited for the next exhibition that will be opening on March the 11th on artist and designer Marian Clayden.
