Orla Kiely on BBC Radio 4 Front Row




As a fan of surface and pattern design, I was interested to listen to Thursday's edition of Front Row on BBC Radio 4. On the eve of the opening of the first exhibition dedicated to designer Orla Kiely, she was interviewed by Shahidha Bari. Orla Kiely discussed the origins of her work at a kitchen table in Ireland and why she thinks that pattern can make you happy without even noticing.



The exhibition is at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London and is said to "explore all aspects of Orla’s creative output, from lifestyle and fashion ranges to use of colour and detail and the geometry of pattern." 


The exhibition draws "on an archive of over 20 years of work, offering visitors unparalleled insight into her methods and concepts, exploring sketches, mood boards, samples and a range of making techniques."
