FIFTY YEARS OF DESIGNERS GUILD AT THE FASHION AND TEXTILE MUSEUM

OUT OF THE BLUE: Fifty years of Designers Guild at the Fashion and Textile Museum

EXTENDED UNTIL 21 FEBRUARY 2021

The Fashion and Textile Museum is now temporarily closed.

In line with the most recent national guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fashion and Textile Museum will be closed from Thursday 5 November – Wednesday 2 December 2020.

OUT OF THE BLUE unravels Tricia Guild’s unique and creative approach, focusing in on her inspiration, her intuitive design methodology and the techniques, processes and materials used. Frustrated with the lack of truly contemporary fabrics and wallpapers for interiors, Tricia showed people how to put the different elements of a room together; how colour, pattern, texture and form can combine to create a harmonious space.
Today, the company is headed and owned by brother and sister - Tricia Guild, Founder and Creative Director; and Simon Jeffreys, Group Chief Executive.

Offering unique access to our archive, with never before displayed original designs and art work, OUT OF THE BLUE showcases the story of our fifty years, in settings that capture the changing tastes in interiors over the past five decades.


All pre-booked tickets can be amended.
