The book Celia Birtwell, takes a loose walk along the timeline of Birtwell’s life and career. It is part autobiography, part free flowing conversation with the designer herself and therefore very easy to read.
Celia Birtwell’s textile design career took off in the early 60’s when she began her decade-long collaboration with Ossie Clark, an up and coming fashion designer. Immediately they were the darlings of the high fashion industry with clients such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Paloma Picasso and Talitha Getty.
"Most textile designers don't think about where the print will end up, how it will work in three dimensions, but Celia always does." --Linda Watson
