She is one of the most important designer in Uk and she loves being considered the queen of the pattern kingdom. If you like both the 1960's and 1970's-style you can not resist to the visionary brand of Orla Kieley. Orla grew up in Ireland and after a degree in design at Dublin's Nationa College of Art and Design she entered in the Esprit Maison. Then she founded her own brand and now the store in London's Covent Garden is the epicentre of her empire.
I have read this book immediately: it is so inspiring and it has delighted my eyes, really!
Traditional florals, sprigged prints and powerful colours are the essential ingredients of patterns.
