On the blog we will include photos and ideas we have taken out and about or seen that inspire our work, so you can see where the ideas come from for the collections. We are always seeking inspiration in new places, nature, architecture and things!

Love the light in the ceiling as you come into the V&A. Went to a superb talk tonight on Chloe. Friday nights in the V&A are so busy and fun with drinks and a DJ playing.

Loved our stay in Cascais . A really special place near Lisbon. Lots of inspiration with colours, patterns and textures all around. A great place to cycle along the coast and inspiration included the lighthouse with its use of white tiles, The Museum of Stories by the Portugese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura with it's orange concrete, our Hotel Pousada Cascais with the mix of modern architecture by the Brazilian Architect Jaime Morais with the 16th Century Old Fort and the Picasso exhibition.

What an amazing inspiring fun city Lisbon is. Loved all the tiles used on the outside of buildings. A city of pattern inspiration….

I had a superb day today visiting the new Clothworkers' Centre for the study of conservation of Textiles and Fashion at the V&A. It is an amazing new set up and resource so I look forward to visiting again with us all in the studio to study a specific period of textiles or design style at the start of new projects.
