Kaffe Fassett: a life in colour

A few evenings ago I visited the preview of Kaffe Fassett: a life in colour, the new exhibition from the Fashion and Textile Museum. It was such a delightful evening and as you can see above I got to chat with the curator Sue Timney. You can read a full review of the exhibition on my other blog but I wanted to share some pictures here as it was a hugely inspirational night for me. I love Fassett's needlepoint cushions especially the Buddha and these little Victorian children. My other favourites are his interiors, his book Glorious Interiors is a must buy; it has inspired my life and aesthetic in so many ways. I am now after a full cabbage dinner set so I can recreate Kaffe's amazing garden table scene.

Below are some delights from glorious interiors
