Join Liberty’s Alison Lewis for a headwrap styling event celebrating the magnificent designs of Althea McNish.

Alison Lewis was born in England to Trinidadian parents. She was raised in Trinidad and returned to London in 1986 to study at the London College of Fashion. After university, Alison’s love of fabrics led her to her career as Senior Fabric Sales Consultant at Liberty, the iconic department store located on Regent Street, where she has been working for over 30 years. Alison is known for making her own garments from the Liberty Fabrics collections - mixing prints and colour together in a joyful and beautiful way. These often come to life in her headwraps, which she’ll be showing participants how to make in the 'true Alison way!'

The event will begin with a drinks reception and tour of the Althea McNish: Colour is Mine exhibition. Alison will then lead the styling session. Liberty will be providing samples of the recently re-issued Althea McNish fabric for participants to take away and continue to style into headwraps at home.

This will be an intimate event with 12 participants in total - relaxed, fun and simple to follow, no experience is required.
