On Wednesday, the whole Textiles cohort went on a trip down to London. I took the opportunity to use this as research for Making Connections, by visiting shops of companies I am researching, with a few other people from my year.
We visited Liberty first, which gave me the chance to see Needle & Thread’s garments in person, and feel the texture of the embroidery (I wasn’t allowed to take photos of any products). The shop is an incredible building, and even though I have been before, I was still amazed by that space in the middle where all the floors are visible.
We then went to Anthropologie, because it is one of the companies that I am researching, as well as a couple of the others I was with. I have always loved Anthropologie, having lived quite close to the Bath store, so I felt like it would be silly not to include it in my research!
