Liberty Lounging


My favourite piece! – The rainbow sofa-seat-thing with mismatching textured buttons – only Β£2,500 – Wahaay!
I’m sure if you follow me on Twitter, you will have heard lots about me working at the famous Liberty for a 5 week internship in Visual Merchandising. In a floral-decorated nutshell: It has been brilliantly insightful, physically hard work but also fun and relaxed! I have lots of things that I would love to show you. Certainly for me, I yearn to see behind the scenes peeks of how the fashion business works so I will try to show you what I’ve learnt and how I’ve contributed. Firstly, my new found love – Homeware! Oh my goodness, I think I’m being converted to interiors. The brilliant thing about the luxury emporium that is Liberty, is that all pieces of furniture in Home are one off, unique pieces. All quirky, both modern + playful and vintage + serious at the same time. It has been so much fun making ‘rooms’ with my lovely colleague Paul. With the arrival of new stock, we’ve spent afternoons pushing huge sofas from one end of the room to the other, knocking our shins, picking out soft furnishings and matching colourways. I know it doesn’t look all that difficult but when you have a million possible combinations of what sofa could go with what table, the process takes hours. It’s like furnishing a new house but lots of times! More to come!

    >Eee I'm excited to hear what you have to say about LFW, most bloggers suddenly get so straight laced and serious about the whole thing. It's like a collective sense of humour failure. So here's to keeping it funs! xx

    >What an interesting internship to have. I have always wanted an internship either in fashion or design, but most of those are in London, and i never wanted to live in London so I didnt really invest my time into trying it out. How amazing must it be to see all the inside scoop at Liberty (Heck yea!) πŸ™‚ Have fun at LFW! πŸ™‚
