The iconic Welsh designer Laura Ashley is being celebrated with a curated exhibition this summer. The free to enter museum at Llanidloes is showcasing some of the designers most significant objects and images. Within the display, visitors can find an extremely rare 1960s version dress alongside many other accessories and interior furnishings. A highly-successful business woman, Laura Ashley brought hundreds of jobs to the local economy and employed many more all over the world at the outlets.
The Powys location is the home of the designer, where Laura Ashley lived and designed her iconic fashion. The museum pays particular attention to the effects the artist had on the local area with influence and benefits rising from her extensive reach. Born in Merthyr Tydfil and living close-by in affluent Rhayader, the fashion icon is still well-loved and admired by her community nearly 40 years since her death in 1985.
You’ll need to visit the exhibition before the end of September, when the space is renewed for something else. The temporary showcasing will be open to all 10am to 1pm on Mondays, 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm on Wednesdays, 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm on Fridays, and 9.30am to 1pm on Saturdays.
The work of Laura Ashley is still a much-loved aspect for designers and retro-feel clothing fans. With a thriving interior design business and a fan-favourite dress-sense, eBay is choc-full of hand-me-downs and brand-new items that carry the sought-after name.
