Friday's Fabulous Woman: Tricia Guild

Long long ago before I even contemplated working with fabric, I used to visit Designers Guild on Kings Road in London and take swatches from the little drawers and I have been a huge fan ever since. Tricia Guild is a dynamic, creative and inspirational designer.  Back in 1970 she founded Designers Guild which is now a global enterprise celebrating the use of bold design and color in fabric and wallpaper.

Per the cover of her latest book, Pattern: "Taking traditional motifs and giving them a modern twist; finding surprising contemporary used for forgotten techniques such as flock printing and stencilling; reinterpreting the ikats, crewelwork, quilting, and other techniques seen on travels everywhere from Italy to India; all these are vital to Tricia Guild's original designs."
