Retrospective exhibit on Laura Ashley reaches Bowes Museum

Sep '13
After mesmerising the visitors of Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Fashion Museum, the first-ever retrospective exhibit on the late Welsh fashion designer and businesswoman Laura Ashley has reached its next destination—the Bowes Museum, located in Durham County, England.
 
Titled as ‘Laura Ashley: The Romantic Heroine’, the exhibition aims to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Laura Ashley label which is known for its printed cotton maxi-dresses in earthy colours. 
 
Slated to run through January 4, 2014, the event features more than 70 gowns, infused with the designer’s signature 19th-century style romantic feel of rural England, sourced from the Laura Ashley archive in Wales, Fashion Museum in Bath and private collections. 
 
The event offers the viewers an up and close view of the designer’s works which redefined the popular knee-length and mini dress wearing trends of the 1960s and 1970s. The design talent revolutionized the fashion world in that era by bringing chaste Victorian-style full length gowns back in vogue.
 
Died in the year 1985, Laura Ashley started her career as a furnishing materials designer in the 1950s.
