Collier & Campbell and vintage Liberty prints

As promised here are some photos from the Collier & Campbell exhibition we took last weekend down at the South Bank. As I'm a print designer myself this was a "must see" exhibition for me... and Ross really enjoyed it too. The exhibition was to celebrate 50 years of their wonderful textile designs. These two talented ladies designed iconic prints for the likes of Jaeger, Yves St Laurent, Cacherel, Habitat and Liberty of London prints.

My favourite designs were the earliest prints from the 60s and 70s... very much like some of my own dresses from that period :)
Below: Amazing colour palette's and birds designed in the 70s for Habitat.

I will be leaving Ross this weekend to visit my Sister, Mark and my sweet sweet nephew Louie in Nottingham and monday we have a big buying trip scheduled so expect lots of new vintage soon at The Attic People Vintage soon. Better go pack now!

Have a great weekend my lovely readers :)
