This is my first work with silk from the legendary British house Liberty, which is over 140 years old.
Today, Liberty London is a historic landmark and one of London's most iconic stores. It is also under this brand that original prints are produced on fabrics. I was lucky to work with their high quality silk.
There is a tradition that the British royal family is not allowed to wear colorful floral dresses to receptions. The exception is only made for Liberty fabric products.
Like their prints, the brand has a rich and colorful history. Fabrics, art, interior items, and antiques were traded at Liberty House. Many curiosities were brought to London from the East. For its collection, the Victoria and Albert Museum purchased oriental embroidery and carpets from Liberty. Oscar Wilde called Liberty "the chosen resort of the artistic shopper."
But it all started with one bright personality. Founder of the brand, Arthur Liberty, said: “I was determined not to follow existing fashions but to create new ones.”
The Liberty shawl is my freedom song. Freedom to be yourself, freedom to express your individuality vividly.
Bright personalities carry many people away with them as they pass by. People are drawn to those who are bright, just as flowers turn their heads towards the sun. Listen, imitate, follow. An individual simply goes his own way, leaving a trail behind him, like a comet's tail.
She is free, because her actions and judgments are not dependent on society's choices and current trends.
This shawl was created for such a person.
Dry clean. Or hand wash.
How to wash: gently wash by hand in warm water with shampoo or with a detergent for wool, then gently rinse in water at the same temperature. Stretch in a wet state to a rectangular shape and steam it with an iron. Hang to dry, after drying completely iron again.
