In memoriam, Lucienne Day

Lucienne Day, dress fabric design (HC6237) for Cavendish Textiles, manufactured on behalf of the John Lewis Partnership, UK, c.1954.

As a tribute to British textile designer, Lucienne Day, we started the Slow Textiles Workshop 11: 1950s Modernist Surfaces – Taking Inspiration from British Textile Designer Lucienne Day and X-ray Crystallography – with Print, Applique & Stitch on to Upcycled Fabric,  by talking and thinking of her as an inspiration to our own textile practices and central to our design heritage.
