Liberty windows

LOOK! at Liberty's beautiful new windows for their furniture and lighting department! Once again making brilliant use of the small space available, they've been able to completely tile one in updated Delft blue tiles, and flood another with sunflower seeds. Very simple and beautiful and for the new homo-wners amongst us some lovely furniture porn on display. Windows in conjunction with amongst others the V&A's Cult of Beauty exhibition which opens April 2.

Corrie Neilsen at the Design Museum

Hats, dresses and everything else off to Corrie Neilsen, winner of the 2010 Fashion Fringe competition, who has just launched an installation in conjunction with Fashion Fringe,and the Design Museum at the Design Museum tank and Atrium spaces down by the Thames. Designed and built by the Selfridges window display department, some of Corries more beautiful pieces are shown alongside some of her patterns, fabric, sketches and inspirational images, as well as some of your more basic tools of the trade. We were on hand to get a few pictures of the work as it happened. We really enjoyed Corrie's presentation at Fashion Week a fortnight earlier, and it's great to get a glimpse into her creative process- it'll be in the tank until 15 May.
