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

 

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.

I attended 4 events, next year I will want to attend even more talks. 
A friend came to stay with us and she was equally impressed by the talks she attended.
