Against the background of designer Laura Ashley's life-from her birth in South Wales in 1925 to her sudden death in 1985-Martin Wood tells the story of the iconic brand she and her husband Bernard created. Beginning with the textiles they designed and printed at home in their three-room flat in the 1950s, Wood looks at how "Laura Ashley style" became a phenomenon after the pair began designing and selling dresses, blouses, and other clothes, followed by a range of household textiles and furnishings. The story is illustrated with more than 200 photographs and drawings from the company's archives and the Ashley family.
