daily obsession: liberty of london prints

Liberty of London was founded by Arthur Lazenby Liberty in 1875 as an oriental import emporium. In the 20th century, Liberty fabrics were used by the best known designers of each decade, from Paul Poiret to Yves Saint Laurent, from Cacharel to Jean Muir. Whenever you see a bright flower or paisley print on a vintage dress, you can bet your bottom dollar that it is a Liberty print. After my winning bid for the scarf, I became a little bit Liberty print crazed. I know what I'll be looking for at thrift stores from now on. I am hoping that I can find a short flower print tank dress or skort.
