Published to coincide with the exhibition, Orla Kiely: A Life in Pattern at The Fashion and Textile Museum, London, 25 May – 23 September 2018.
Orla Kiely has opened her archives to explore a life dedicated to print. From her earliest and most iconic pattern, Stem, to the evolution of her print design encompassing the worlds of fashion, homewares and beyond, Orla shares the full range of patterns and designs that she has produced since establishing her brand in 1995.
This is a celebration of Orla’s entire body of work – of colour, of print and of a handbag loved by women all over the world.
Foreword written by Leith Clark, founder of The Violet Book and previously Lula magazine.
