Design Collection at ‘London Collections: Men’ fashion event
To launch our new-look Design Collection, we are holding a special lunchtime event exploring how historical prints are relevant to contemporary designers. The event, part of London Collections: Men and held in partnership with the British Fashion Council, will be held on Monday 15 June.
The Design Collection is a portfolio of rarely seen heritage designs that provides inspiration for today’s designers. The online subscription service gives access to more than 1,000 heritage designs which users can browse by pattern, theme, colour and date range to find the designs that appeal to them the most. Subscribers can download an unlimited number with more designs being added to the collection on a regular basis.
Our digital service for designers draws on some of the most visual treasures in our collection and allows artists to look for inspiration and fashion designers to create new ranges inspired by and rooted in heritage.
Interior design brands can see original, bygone styles and give them a contemporary twist for modern homes, while subscribing art colleges can provide their students with access to an accurate record of design and manufacturing history.
