A special exhibition to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Laura Ashley clothing brand.

When the designer started her line back in 1953, she was unknown, making textiles from a printing press in her kitchen. Laura Ashley gave the world the chaste cotton print maxi-dress in earth-hewn natural colours and a notion of life in a golden age; a pastoral idyll far away from the mad city life.
