Alison Willoughby

Alison Willoughby is an established and innovative textile designer, selling and exhibiting her work both in Britain and abroad. For Alison, a skirt is more than just a garment – it is a work of art in it’s own right. Made without darts, they are flat, unaffected, timeless, classic and simple; they are the canvas on which she works. Much of the inspiration for her pieces comes from the depths of the inner city: lanes, alleys, passages, streets and terraces – places that are neglected, ever-changing, disintegrating and subsiding. Crumbling walls, fly posters laid one on top of the other, weathered peeling paint, marks and stains, the kaleidoscope of colour, texture, tone, scale, shape, proportion, pattern, line and placement.
