Orla Kiely:  A Life in Pattern - and how it can make you happy without you even noticing

We are sorry to inform you that this event has been cancelled

The world of Orla Kiely is one where pattern reigns. Immediately recognisable, her unique design language and sure sense of graphic control has seen her label become a hugely successful global brand. From her early signature bags, the collection has grown to include a complete womenswear line, accessories, travel and homeware, sold in shops and outlets worldwide. Her flagship store in London's Covent Garden is the epicentre of a global business that has won four prestigious UK Fashion export awards. Her work is presented at London Fashion Week and encompasses luggage, stationery, gardening and homeware and her design studio has collaborated with leading brands such as Heal's, Clarks, Apple and Uniqlo.

A Life in Pattern is Orla's lavishly illustrated exploration of design evolution published to coincide with a major exhibition: Orla Kiely: a Life in Pattern at the Fashion and Textile Museum.

Orla will be in conversation with fashion and design specialist and writer Ana-Cecilia Guzman.

Event sponsored by Humphries Kirk

This Year's Events

Feedback

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...

Feedback From 2015 Festival

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

A really enjoyable and unusual event. I got a good feeling from it. And am so glad the Festival in general has gone well.
