A celebration of the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland at Alice Caroline
A brand new Liberty of London collection is being released in January - but at Alice Caroline they have a sneak preview and pre-selling offer for customers before they go out on general sale.
This new collection is a special one as it is inspired by the 150th anniversary of the first release of the classic book ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, due to be celebrated in 2015. The collection is called ‘Pictures and Conversations’ and has so many lovely memories of the amazing book – from images of the riverbank where Lewis Carroll first told the story and the mad hatters tea party to stunning roses reminiscent of the garden of the Queen of Hearts. Well-known designers such as Lauren Child (of Charlie and Lola fame) and Alex Monroe (established traditional jewellery designer) have been instrumental in the new collection, which has a huge range of wonderful prints including beautiful florals, lovely tea party patterns as well as having a great sense of fun in some of the designs. One of the fabric designs was even selected by Kathryn Beaumont, the English actress who provided the voice of Alice in the Disney production.
Alice Caroline specialises in selecting fabrics from the main Liberty of London collection and putting the right designs and colours together to form their own unique brand. These are packaged together to give customers a wonderful choice of colours for their sewing projects.
Alice at Alice Caroline said “We are delighted to be able to pre-sell such a wonderful collection of Tana Lawn fabrics from Liberty of London. All of the fabrics are inspired by Alice in Wonderland, which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2015. I remember reading the book as a child and being entranced by a whole new world – Liberty of London has perfectly captured the wonderful imagery and sentiment of the book. I am excited to say that I think this is one of their best collections yet.”
