Linda Blissett is a Textile /fashion designer, specialising in niche items constructed from fabrics, which she designs and hand weaves herself. She studied at Middlesex & Portsmouth Universities, graduating with a BA honours in Constructed Textiles and H.N.D Textiles for Fashion. In August 2013, she founded Bliss Studio Textiles for her handwoven accessories brand.
Stylistically, Linda's work is a blend of her own handwoven multi-textural fabric designs incorporated with her avant garde couture evening dress designs. Using various textures from antique lace, sheer silks, dense wools, crystals, feathers and twisted fine wires, with woven in ribbons to create A-symmetrical finishes and breathing new life into antique fabrics by upcycling them into her creations.
Linda's major recent showing was her 2nd couture collection AW 16/17 'Bellisama: Lakes, Rivers, Fire and craft , A study in Fabric', This was exhibited at the London & Paris Fashion week for emerging designers, with Fashions Finest and Oxford Fashion Studio for A/W 16. The collection takes its’ inspiration from Celtic mythology, the ambience & tome of the pre Raphaelites and the mood and style of the Edwardian avant garde. As a weaver, Linda is deeply stirred by the sensual textures of Margaret Macdonald and the assertive symmetry of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Her intention is to echo these powerful elements while creating something fresh and new. In doing so Linda draws on a palette of natural and bolder hues of crimsons, teals, emerald greens, Amethyst with pastel greens & blues and lilacs, gold and silver complimented with natural hues from the sea and rivers and pebbles and rocks, to weave these inspirations together. The Avalon Collection built these into an intricate architecture of modern and traditional woven fabric worked into eclectic art, transforming the wearer and turning any event into a modern Fairy-tale.
