Shop windows - Liberty's of London

From 1992, I worked at a small company in London, designing and manufacturing high quality ladies wear for the First Traditions label which exported to Europe and Japan. I also worked closely with buyers to develop ranges for stores with their own labels, Liberty, Swaine Adeney, Scotch House, J&M Davidson, John Lewis, Mitsukoshi and Isetan.

This shop window is from Liberty's with their own label range.
