There was so much to share from my visit to the Horrocks Exhibition.
This is a follow on to a previous post showcasing the stunning dresses from the collection.
Horrocks, Textiles and Print
After World War 2, the demand for colourful textiles prints was such, that leading artists and illustrators, including Warhol, Joan Miro and Picasso, were approached to create textile versions of their art.
The garments and prints are delightful – if you get a opportunity to visit the exhibition at The Fashion & Textile Museum then jump at the chance.
Some of the textiles started life as art work, before being transformed into printed cloth.
Please excuse the dark images – it was very dimly lit.

When I left the exhibition my head was buzzing. Only a strong cup of tea and a slice of cake could settle me own.
My girlfriend and I sat, opened our journals and started doodling. Making notes on our thoughts and how we could incorporate the shape, form, colour, lines and textures into our future work.
A debrief always helps me sleep at night, otherwise my head buzzes and keeps me awake.
