The Festival of Britain: Print and Pattern

Next week London’s Southbank Centre celebrates the 60th anniversary of The Festival of Britain – the largest celebration of British culture the 20th century had seen. Stylus takes inspiration from prints and patterns seen at the original 1951 Festival and looks at contemporary launches from British designers.

Designed to help raise the nation’s sprits and celebrate its recovery after World War II, The Festival of Britain promoted the very best in British art, design and industry – paving the way for a vibrant 1950s Britain.
