'ARTIST TEXTILES Picasso to Warhol' at the Fashion and Textile Museum
A splash of colour in Bermondsey, close to London Bridge - this is the Fashion and Textile Museum, designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta.
It's a cutting edge centre for contemporary fashion, textiles and jewellery and has a programme of changing exhibitions and offers courses too.
Just opened is a really exciting exhibition 'ARTIST TEXTILES Picasso to Warhol' which traces the history of 20th century art in textiles. I'm delighted that a selection of my silk scarves have been selected to be sold in the museum shop to compliment this exhibition. How exciting to be mentioned in the same paragraph as some of the artists featured - George Braque, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Sonia Delaunay, Raoul Dufy, Barbara Hepworth, Fernand Leger, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, Ben Nicholson and Andy Warhol!
