Liberty In Fashion at Fashion And Textile Museum

About

Celebrate the 140th anniversary of one of London's most famous and stylish stores with Liberty in Fashion at the Fashion and Textile Museum.

Liberty has been at the forefront of design and the decorative arts since its opening in 1875, gaining a reputation for (along with many other things) its highly distinctive textile prints.

Following Liberty's role in setting key trends, the exhibition has drawn together a wide range of unique and fascinating exhibits. From Art Deco to the work of Vivienne Westwood and Yves Saint Laurent, there are more than 150 stunning pieces on display, the largest collection of Liberty ensembles and artefacts since the centenary celebration in 1975.

Highlights include a cape from the 1890s that was made from Chinese shawls, a late 1960s Macedonia print dress, a Paul Poiret silk robe from the 1930s and even some rare items from trainer manufacturer Nike.
