New Love: Imogen Heath

Whilst flicking through the latest issue of Elle Decoration, I found a small piece on one of the Style News pages talking about a new textile designer named Imogen Heath.

The designs really caught my eye and I fell in love with the fantastic colours she used. Imogen has a great variety of prints ranging from gorgeous geometric to cute ditsy florals.

On Imogen's website it says: 
"Imogen Heath has been a textile designer since 2004, starting up her own design studio with the support of the Princes Trust in June 2011.

The business has progressed rapidly since the launch; her colourful and elegant work has already caught the eye ofnational and international press, as well as prestigious UK retailers such as Heal’s and Liberty, who have been the first to stock Imogen’s cushions and fabrics.
Imogen combines traditional artistry with digital technology to create print designs, which are rich with both geometric and organic motifs.  A strong sense of nostalgia underpins all of Imogens work; influenced in part by her fine art background and training as a weave designer, but also by her own everyday life and frequent  journeys between her home in Brighton and the countryside."
