While Eduardo Paolozzi is best known as a sculptor, he also
made a distinctive and perhaps surprising contribution
to the worlds of fashion and mid-century design. In the
1950s he created bold textile designs that applied his
collage aesthetic to modern dress and furnishing fabrics
for companies such as Horrockses and David Whitehead.
Geoff Raynor and Richard Chamberlain of Target Gallery
and Dennis Northdruft, Director of the Fashion and Textile
Museum, will discuss this little-known aspect of his work.
