Description
Against the background of designer Laura Ashley's life—from her birth in South Wales in 1925 to her sudden death in 1985—Martin Wood tells the story of the iconic brand she and her husband Bernard created. Beginning with the textiles they designed and printed at home in their three-room flat in the 1950s, Wood looks at how "Laura Ashley style" became a phenomenon after the pair began designing and selling dresses, blouses, and other clothes, followed by a range of household textiles and furnishings. The story is illustrated with more than 200 photographs and drawings from the company's archives and the Ashley family.

"A beautifully compiled record of the life and inspirations behind the legend that is Laura Ashley. Drawn from first-hand accounts, Martin Wood skillfully documents the history of what has become a highly successful and influential brand."—Easy Living
