The design houses of ‘Celia Birtwell’ and ‘Blendworth Interiors’ have come together to re-launch Celia Birtwell’s ‘Classic’ designs.
A true bohemian and one of the most important and iconic textile designers of her generation, Celia ‘is the face that launched a thousand prints, enchanting and inspiring her fans across the globe for the past five decades’. Designing with a desire to amuse herself and her audience, her unique, innovative and witty style is timeless, yet like many true artists she sought to find a mentor who could help her realise her vision and goal, bringing her ‘Classic’ designs to a wider audience, hence the creative synergy with Blendworth began.
CBE, muse of David Hockney and partner of the pioneering fashion designer Ossie Clark, Celia’s bold, romantic and feminine style has had a major influence on both the fashion and interior scenes. Her iconic designs have featured in both British and International exclusive hotels as well as catwalks for couture brands such as Valentino, who have called upon her design expertise to create seminal and exclusive prints.
Drawing inspiration from the life around her, the V&A, Kew Gardens, life in Notting Hill and more recently the Shropshire countryside that she retreats to, Celia has created amongst many others, the prints which form the Celia Birtwell ‘Classic’ Collection in collaboration with Blendworth.
