For nearly fifty years, sisters Susan Collier and Sarah Campbell have been at the forefront of textile design. Collections for London’s Liberty department store made their name. Their work at this point included prints, furnishing and dress textiles, and famously Liberty’s noted scarves, and many of their designs were widely licensed and became ubiquitous.
By the late 1970s, they had added wallpaper designs to their repertoire, and in 1979 established themselves as an independent partnership. Their client list includes names like Yves St Laurent, habitat, and Marks & Spencer, and the quality of their work has been recognized by the V&A Museum in London (where 33 of their designs are held in the permanent collection). A long-term US association with Martex saw their patterns grace designer bedding—which even made an appearance in Seinfeld.
Staggering in its scale (over 25,000 patterns to date) the Collier-Campbell Archive is the permanent record of this astonishingly fruitful collaboration.
