Tana Lawn - Chelsea Chaconia
An abstract representation of the majestic Chaconia flower, Chelsea Chaconia is an overlapping design of leaves and petals, produced using multiple layers of bright colour in Althea’s trademark style. Created in 1958, it was originally included in the seasonal 1960-1961 furnishing ranges.
This collection celebrates the designs of Althea McNish, showcasing the Trinidadian designer’s unique eye for graphic, multi-layered prints in vividly tropical-infused shades. Hailing from Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, she moved to England in the 1950’s and subsequently revolutionized the world of post-war British textile design with her bold and beautiful prints – starting with her very first collection, created as a freelance commission for Liberty Fabrics in 1958. Recreated from Althea’s designs in the Liberty Archive the collection exhibits her vibrant florals and textural patterns in exciting new colorways.
