21 September 2013 – 5 January 2014
Celebrating 60 years of the iconic fashion designer who re-introduced the Pre-Raphaelite style to Modern Britain.
Laura Ashley’s romantic visions of a pastoral Britain helped transform the metropolitan woman into a floral tea-dressing country girl in the 1960s.
This exhibition examines Laura Ashley’s legacy and how her earthy designs have continued to influence the way women dress today.
