There is a new exhibition opening this week at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London featuring the work of leading post-war female designers, Lucienne Day, Jacqueline Groag and Marian Mahler.
Designing Women: Post-war British textiles showcases their work beginning with Lucienne Day’s ‘Calyx’ pattern of 1951, featured at the Festival of Britain, and moving through textile commissions of the 1960s and 70s. The exhibition features more than 100 works.
This exhibition runs from 16th March 2012 until 16th June 2012. The entry price of £7 (£5 for eligible concessions) also allows access to some other displays including The Printed Square – Vintage Handkerchiefs which I would be very interested to see as well.
