Liberty of London Archives

Liberty of London Archives was recently re-located to a new home at Central St Martins College of Arts and Design. St Martins College (presently undergoing redefinition and  major redevelopment), is one of The University of the Arts of London’s campuses. It offers a range of courses including Performance, Product and Furniture Design, Photography, Sculpture: Fashion, Textiles Design, Marketing, and Architecture Object and Spatial Design.

I met with Anna Baruma (Archivist of Liberty of London) on Campus at St Martins College. Anna showed me many of the old sample books from the Liberty archives as well as more contemporary works. There were unusual examples of paisley, floral and geometric designs influenced by the popularity of exotic textiles and the process of making from the East.
A dream come true! Thank you Anna and Thank you Liberty of London!
