Blurring the boundaries between art, textiles and fashion.

From dying fabrics for costumes and hangings for nine touring companies of the musical Hair, in 1970, to producing an atelier collection of hand-dyed garments and accessories under her own label from 1981-2005, Marian Clayden’s unique and luxurious designs are virtuoso Bohemian chic.

This vibrant and diverse exhibition showcases examples of Clayden’s work with influences from Grand Opera, Iran, Kabuki and ethnic dance. Clayden’s trail-blazing textiles and garments blurred the boundaries between art, textiles and fashion.
