Lucy Clive draws inspiration from sea and landscapes
Chiswick designer Lucy Clive has launched her first range of furnishing fabric.
Lucy, who trained at the Central School of Art and Design initally established herself running a fashion business, Hyper Hyper, on Kensington High Street selling clothes made from her printed fabrics.
Now her studio Clivework, has branched out into fabrics. Centred on three intricate and unique designs, Arbeit, Entente and Prima – each printed in three colourways on a linen union ( see pic below) – the collection has been developed through Lucy’s drawing and screenprinting work, which draws inspiration from seascapes, landscapes and architecture.
She said: “In designing these fabrics my aim was to create something visually exciting that does more than just cover windows but adds drama and depth to a room. These designs are a culmination of long process of refining a wide range of references to produce fabrics that work in both contemporary and traditional setting. They have been designed to work individually or alongside each other to create interesting and exciting juxtapositions.”
All fabrics and cushions are printed and made in England. The prints are 125 cm wide, retailing at £55 per metre. Fabrics can be ordered directly from the Clivework studio, through www.clivework.com or via its distributors.
