Liberty Best of British Open Call

Picture 21

Picture 22 Just wanted to give you a heads-up about Liberty's open call for new British designers and creative talent. They're holding an open call on Saturday 6 February, where designer-makers can present their ideas to a panel of experts including the Liberty buying team (and they promise it won't be anything like Dragon's Den!). The best ideas and designs will have their wares snapped up and sold at Liberty. For more info, including registration details, click here. Good luck, everyone!

In other Liberty news, the store is returning to its Arts & Crafts heritage with a new dedicated department on the fourth floor. Curated by Arts & Crafts expert Patch Rogers, the department will feature original furniture, metalwork and textiles. Look out for a full Wee Birdy report…

    I am so excited about the Arts and Crafts department- I don’t know why they didn’t do it ages ago. Of course I won’t really be able to go in because i will want everything but nevermind…

    What a lovely idea! Can’t wait to see what these designers come up with and who makes it into Liberty… truly exciting for them!
    Also, did you see Liberty is launching a collection for USA-based Target? Am not sure how I feel about that…

    Great idea to have a dedicated arts and crafts floor, even more of an excuse to go to Liberty’s (not that I need another one really!)
