The Lizzie Derriey Design Studio was a Parisian textile and wallpaper design house that created works between 1928 and 1994 for some of the world’s best known fashion designers.
The studio’s signature style being the embodiment of colour and creativity.
Over this period with up to 25 artists and designers working at any one time in the creative co-operative, there were a vast number of original artworks created — each by hand, each unique, each original.
To this date very little is known of the studio that was located on Rue du Faubourg, Saint-Honoré, Paris (known as one of the most fashionable streets in the world), and even less about Lizzie Derriey herself. Nothing has been produced since, and nearly 70 years worth of design classics are unaccounted for.
In late 2010, part of the collection was rediscovered in the south of France. Following the thrill of the discovery, the current owners chose to bring a small number of the highly collectable and unique artworks into the public domain. Liberty London, synonymous with textile print, design and creativity, was the only place for the collection to be exclusively revealed.
This Lizzie Derriey Collection is diverse, each piece is handmade, rare, beautiful and entirely original. Better still — they’re now available to purchase, so you can own a piece of 20th century Parisian history — one that unites art, design and fashion.
Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is a street in Paris, cited as one of the most fashionable streets in the world. This is due to the presence of virtually every major fashion house.
