Award-winning textile designer Alison Yule will be starting the New Year in style when she exhibits at a prestigious event in Paris.
She will be showcasing some of her key work, which brings fabric to life, to a truly international audience at the Maison & Objet Show in January.
It is a huge accolade to be selected to exhibit at the trade show, which targets professionals from the field of home fashion and design and attracts top buyers and suppliers worldwide.
Derbyshire-based Alison is delighted to have the opportunity to show some of the most influential people in the business her unique hand woven products that fuse contemporary design with traditional fibres.
She has been selected to attend the show along with 5 members of Design Factory, the premier organisation supporting Designer Makers in the East Midlands. They have been selected to exhibit by Alelier d’Art de France, their equivalent of the Crafts Council.
Alison, whose business is Alison Yule Textiles and who has been weaving, spinning and dyeing for over 30 years, creates richly textured fabrics with simple, effective designs.
Hallmarks of her work, which include wall panels, rugs, cushions and window hangings, are unusual colour combinations and original textiles that are inspired by her surroundings.
Alison is hoping her work will catch the eye of key international buyers and influencers at the Maison & Objet Show in January. She will be exhibiting in L’Espace, Hall 4, Stand E56
She said: “Exhibiting at such a high-profile event and to leaders of the international home fashion and design world is a great achievement.
“I’m very much looking forward to going to Paris and it is a great honour to have been selected to exhibit at such a prestigious event.”
