LIBERTY Art Fabrics & Fashion

Exhibition Tour & Drinks Reception
Enjoy a glamourous behind-the-scenes tour of LIBERTY Art Fabrics & Fashion in this special evening hosted by Dovecot’s Director, Celia Joicey. Discover the origins of Liberty & Co as an importer of exotic goods, as well as the company’s unique contribution to British art, craft and design. From Japanese silks to ‘Umritzur’ Cashmere and high profile brand collaborations, textiles have been at the heart of Liberty’s success for over 140 years. Oscar Wilde said, “Liberty is the chosen resort of the artistic shopper” and the company has since grown from a department store into a major wholesale business through its long-standing association with Art Nouveau pattern.
