The Liberty Christmas Story sees the Liberty animals that are intricately carved in to the panels and pillars of the iconic building come to life via print, verse and display. Liberty Fabric print designer, Ffion Griffith and emerging poet, Gabrielle Djanogly worked closely together to create the enchanted world of our yule-tide creatures. Hand drawn by Ffion in Liberty’s London based design studio, the animals have been reimagined to create a series of Christmas prints, whilst Gabrielle’s ‘A Liberty Christmas’joyously describes the antics of our magical friends at night and how they help and hinder Christmas preparations.
Taken straight from the Christmas print itself, the Liberty animals spring in to action within the store’s ten Great Marlborough Street windows. The black and white 2-D animals are displayed against richly decorated home-scenes surrounded by an assortment of gifts. Cheeky monkeys are seen swinging from the ceiling, guffawing elephants sit at the head of dinner tables and lions relax by the fireside.
