Patternbank were excited to explore Orla Kiely’s iconic print archive last week, at the first ever exhibition of her work, products, and patterns. Orla Kiely is one of the UK and Ireland’s most successful designers. Her stylized graphic patterns are innovative, influential and instantly recognisable. With a global audience in thrall to the rhythms and repeats of her designs, this exhibition explores the power of decoration to transform the way we feel. The Exhibition opens from the 25th May – 23rd Sept at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum. The Patternbank team were lucky enough to walk the show with Orla, and ask some questions at the launch event last Wednesday.

In your opinion what makes a timeless textile pattern?

I think something that is well designed, there are lots of different styles and lots of different textiles that are timeless classics in their own right. It’s about the quality of the design work. Also the consideration of colour and not overworking the design.

Your designs take inspiration from the 50s & 60s, as well as Scandinavian modern design. What draws you to this era and design aesthetic?

I grew up in those times (the 60s & 70s) and when you’re a child you are absorbing. Things become comforting or familiar. My family had funny interior quirks. Lots of people say that my designs are comforting and remind them of their childhood.

Today Patternbank are featuring the work of  Luiza Cazal Print Studio in our ongoing series highlighting our fantastic designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. The studio is based in Sydney, Australia and joined Patternbank last year. We asked about what inspires their designs and a little but about how the patterns are produced, “we are inspired by how digital and traditional techniques and methods together create beautiful designs. We are proficient in both the digital space ( photoshop and illustrator ) As well as traditional painting and drawing, which is something are proud to offer. We like to let the trends Inspire our design but we never design to a trend, which we think keeps our work fresh. To stay on top of trends we like to go window shopping weekly just to see what is current”.
