Library Shelf Location 25a.COLL
Publication Date 2012

For more than fifty years, sisters Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell have been at the forefront of textile design with their vibrant hand-painted patterns. Launching their careers in London during the Swinging Sixties, they made their names with stunning collections for Liberty of London Prints, and their renowned patterns, with a painterly aesthetic, marked a significant turning point in textile design. Endlessly inventive, their work has been taken up by fashion leaders including Liberty, Yves Saint Laurent and Jaeger and major homeware producers, like Habitat, Martex, JP Stevens, Fischbacher and P Kaufmann. Inspiring a new generation of textile designers, their prints and patterns are in great demand on the vintage markets. In 2011, the National Theatre, London, celebrated fifty years of their exuberant designs to great acclaim. Important examples of their work are held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York.
