Richard Westson invited to supply Liberty of London

Following its second ‘British Open Design Call’, Professor Richard Weston has been invited to supply Liberty of London. One of a dozen or so selected from some 950 who attended the event, Richard will be making silk scarves printed with images from his digital database scanned from minerals and rocks (www.earth.uk.net). He comments:

‘Given its roots in the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau I’ve always been convinced that Liberty was the perfect outlet for my products. But it’s a huge challenge to get into such a prestigious store and I’m delighted that this “X-factor for design” event – the brainchild of their new American Director of Buying, Ed Burstell – has made it possible.’
