Laura Ashley Celebrates 65th Anniversary

May 7, 2018

Fort Mill, SC (May 1, 2018) - Laura Ashley, the British lifestyle brand known worldwide for its classic prints, fashion and home furnishings, is celebrating its 65th anniversary.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    To commemorate over six decades in fashion and home decor, the company will be launching collections that reflect the 65-year history throughout 2018. Sticking to its own house signatures, Laura Ashley will offer a nod to those who see the brand through a nostalgic lens with popular prints that feature an heirloom feel which is part of the brand’s DNA as well as a look through a modern and fresh lense showcasing the brand’s iconic take on florals and colour.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Recognized across the globe for its cheerful, colourful take on fashion and decor, Laura Ashley came from humble beginnings as a small family-owned company to become a major player on the international stage.                                                                                                                                                              Inspired by a handiworks exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Laura Ashley and her husband Bernard Ashley started printing scarves in their kitchen in 1953. The brand expanded from a range of small accessories to become a lifestyle brand before the term was even in use, with a range of products to outfit customers and their homes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      In that same pioneering spirit, Laura Ashley kept expanding, adding iconic fragrances to the line and bringing its trademark look to shoppers all over the world.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Always looking ahead, the company is already preparing for the next major milestone: 70 years in business. The 65th anniversary year will give loyalists a prelude of what’s to come for the label’s platinum anniversary and introduce a whole new customer to the enchanting and enduring world of Laura Ashley.
