From May until November, Liberty is commemorating its founder and his creative talents with a series of events, exhibitions and a new Liberty 140 print, the Mayflower (pictured) whose name represents both Liberty's May birthday and also the ship which can be seen atop of the store, the famous Liberty weathervane. The famous London store is also playing host to a larger-than-life maypole, festooned with Liberty ribbons that has been erected in the centre of shop.
Among the events, Liberty will be partaking in this year's Vogue Fashion's Night Out on the 23 September, known this year as Vogue Loves Regent Street, and celebrating with high street brands and designers in central London for the very first time.
Most of our excitement, however, is reserved for the launch of the new fashion exhibition, Liberty in Fashion at the Design and Textile Museum, exploring Liberty’s impact on British fashion; from Orientalism and Aesthetic dress in the 19th century, to Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the Arts and Crafts movement in the early 20th century, and the revival of these styles since the 1950s.
