Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell for Liberty 1961–77
Display Dates: 9 October 2015 – 28 February 2016
Design duo Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell energised Liberty’s textile collections for over 15 years. From scarves to fashion and furnishing fabrics, their painterly patterns paved the way for a vibrant new aesthetic in Liberty prints, including the hugely successful ‘Bauhaus’ range in 1972. This display showcases original painted designs, sketches, printed swatches, lengths and objects from their collection. Accompanies the exhibition Liberty in Fashion.
