  Featured Business Profile

Linda Blissett is a London-based textile/fashion designer, specialising predominantly in niche Handwoven fabrics. She graduated from Middlesex & Portsmouth University with a BA honours in Constructed Textiles and H.N.D Textiles for Fashion.

As of May 2014 Linda was shortlisted among the finalists for the John Singer Sargent Open art prize. And showcased for the first time at London Fashion week in September 2014.

Linda Blissett’s new couture collection was recently shown at London and Paris Fashion weeks for A/W 16. The designs are inspired by bold colours and flamboyance of the art from the Pre-Raphaelite era. The dresses feature an intricate architecture of modern and traditional woven fabric worked into eclectic art, transforming the wearer and turning any event into a modern Fairy-tale.
Passionately, she endeavors to create unique handcrafted pieces of wearable art from scarves, wraps and bags. Each design, an individual work, intended to create a piece of composition that delivers a distinctive mood or texture into fabric.

Much of her influences are drawn from the Art Nouveau era, particular artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Jessie M King, Margaret MacDonald, together with Celtic Mythology. Linda is also deeply influenced by the seasonal ebb and flow of the British Isles, from Autumnal woodlands, insect wings, and tree bark and the undulating patterns of seaweed left by the outgoing tide.
No two pieces of Linda's work will be identical, although themes flow from one piece to another. She has an affinity for colours and textures and likes experimenting with variety of different forms of media.

Her work incorporates a multitude of media; from silks, luxury wool fibres, cashmere, mohair, metallic yarns,ribbons,vintage lace,velvets and satins with occasional hand embroided beading (as inspiration dicates).
