Textiles Inspiration: Leila Duly born 1977

Leila Duly studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design and then went on to do her BA (hons) in Fashion Textiles at Brighton University, where I met and befriended her in 1996. She has always been a great ‘Textiles Inspiration‘ for me. Her drawing is beautiful, technical and delicate and she has a real talent for subtle colouring. Leila has been a successful textiles designer for over 10 years, producing printed textiles designs for a wide range of the most respected fashion brands and retailers all over the world. Leila has an online shop where she is selling some of her designs in beautiful silk lampshades and pillows. I bet that we have all either worn or atleast admired one of her prints on our shopping sprees.
