Escaparates Abril 2010 (Quilty pleasures at Liberty’s)

  • To coincide with the current Quilts: 1700-2010 exhibition at the V&A, we see Liberty’s windows emulating the infamously risqué art of Tracy Emin and Sarah Lucas, along with fabric interpretations of artwork by Chris Ofili
  • Bold lettering is a key statement-maker with fabric embroidered words adorning displays
  • Off-cuts of Liberty print fabrics are strewn in bin-bags to reiterate the trashy nature of the display
  • Challenging the spinsterish associations of quilting, Liberty’s visual merchandising shows the female form in compromising and provocative situations to bring her more up to date, emphasising quilting as a playful pastime accessible to a modern audience
