Favorite Liberty Fabric Quotes

At the beginning of this year, we shared some quotes from famous people about Liberty Fabric. Here are our favorites!

Arthur Liberty - “I was determined not to follow existing fashion but to create new ones.”

Catherine B - “Liberty is a symbol of chic."

Christopher Kane - “I just love Liberty; I love the history and the whole experience, it’s a one stop shop.”

Ed Burstell, Managing Director - “Liberty is one of the last great emporiums of its kind left on earth…it’s the most unique store that I have ever come across.”  

Jamie Oliver - “Liberty is one of those lovely places that has hardly changed in generations and that’s what I love about it – the carved staircase, the beams and the maze of rooms, it’s all unmistakably Liberty.”

Manolo Blahnik - “I have known about Liberty since I was a young boy. My mother used to order Tana Lawn fabric and make us outfits. The store is so beautiful and its history is so rich.”

Markus Lupfer - “I’m still fascinated by the magnificent architecture of the historic building as well as the quality of all the beautifully designed products. Liberty is always inspiring and I still love going to shop there.”
