As part of the Althea McNish: Colour is Mine programme and with the support of our sponsor Liberty FabricsWilliam Morris Gallery commissioned 3 designers - Simone Brewster, Yemi Awosile and Rita Keegan - to reimagine and reinterpret Althea’s original designs.

To take her aesthetic, her creative essence, her inspirations and make bold new designs to be incorporated into a product. Inspired by Althea McNish is a wonderful celebration of, and tribute to, McNish’s work. The new products created will help to present McNish’s story and legacy as a way of inspiring and motivating a new generation of young designers from under-represented backgrounds.
