Against the background of Laura Ashley’ s life – from her birth in South Wales in 1925 to her sudden death in 1985 – Martin Wood tells the story of the iconic brand she and her husband, Bernard, created. Beginning with the textiles they designed and printed at home in their three-room flat in the 1950s, Wood looks at how, when they began designing and selling dresses, blouses and other clothes, and launched a range of household textiles and furnishings, ‘ Laura Ashley style’ became a phenomenon.
The story is richly illustrated with more than 200 photographs and drawings, many never previously published, from the company’ s archives and the Ashley family’ s private records.
