  • Orla Kiely A Life in Pattern

Popular designer Orla Kiely is celebrated for her plant based patterns that pack a powerful graphic punch on everyday life. Her flat graphic style and choice of colour palette have chimed with recent nostalgia for vintage style and interiors, this exhibition explores why the rhythms and repeats of her designs have such wide and enduring appeal.

With unique access to the company archives, the exhibition offers a privileged insight into the designer’s world. Revisiting the work of other twentieth century luminaries in pattern design, this exhibition explores the story of pattern and how some designs can come to epitomise the style of their time.

Exhibition organised by the Fashion & Textile Museum, London
