Emily works as a senior designer at the very prestigious Derek Rose (http://www.derek-rose.com/), who amongst other things are famed for their beautifully designed silk pyjamas (as seen on Benedict Cumberbatch in the Sherlock Holmes series!). Being another designer within fashion retail, I know that Emily understands why I was desperate to explore Liberty of London for a bit of inspiration. If you have never been to to Liberty's it is definitely worth a look. The building itself dates back to the 1920's and was built during the Tudor revival, parts of it's reconstruction incorporated timber taken from two ships - which gives Liberty's interior a grand feel.
Aside from it's famous architecture, Liberty's is famed for it's classic prints which were an absolute joy to look at.
