Linda is a London-based 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 

As of May 2014 Linda was shortlisted among the finalists for the John Singer Sargent Open art prize. And showcased for the first time at London Fashion week with fashions finest for new designers in September 2014. Since then has shown in London/Paris fashion weeks for new designers twice.

Linda Blissett’s 2nd couture collection AW 16/17 Bellisama: Lakes, Rivers, Fire and craft , A study in Fabric   was shown at London and Paris Fashion weeks for emerging designers with Fashions Finest and Oxford Fashion Studio for A/W 16. The collection takes its’ inspiration from Celtic mythology 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.

Her designs are inspired by bold colours and flamboyance of the art from the Pre-Raphaelite era. The dresses from her Avalon Collection  AW15/16 featured 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.
Passionately, she endeavors to create unique handcrafted pieces of wearable art from scarves, wraps and bags. Each design, an individual work, intended to create a piece of composition that delivers a distinctive mood or texture into fabric.

Much of her influences are drawn from the Art Nouveau era, particular artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Jessie M King, Margaret MacDonald, together with Celtic Mythology. Linda is also deeply influenced by the seasonal ebb and flow of the British Isles, from Autumnal woodlands, insect wings, and tree bark and the undulating patterns of seaweed left by the outgoing tide.
No two pieces of Linda's work will be identical, although themes flow from one piece to another. She has an affinity for colours and textures and likes experimenting with variety of different forms of media.

Her work incorporates a multitude of media; from silks, luxury wool fibres, cashmere, mohair, metallic yarns,ribbons,vintage lace,velvets and satins with occasional hand embroided beading (as inspiration dicates).Please contact for orders or special orders
