In the years after WWII three female textile designers injected new life into British Textiles. London’s Fashion and Textile Museum is currently holding an exhibition entitled Designing Women: Post-War British Textiles spotlighting these women, Lucienne Day (1917–2010), Jacqueline Groag (1903–86) and Marian Mahler (1911– 83). Their bold and colorful designs are often whimsical and sometimes deliberate. The patterns have a historic and nostalgic feeling, but their lighthearted designs also bare a certain timelessness.
