Royal College of Art Diploma Show, Lucienne Day, 1940

The fabrics in Lucienne’s Diploma Show were hand block printed and screen printed by the designer in the craft workshops at the Royal College of Art. They were stylishly displayed on a stand designed by Robin, who also created the chair upholstered with Lucienne’s Bushmen design.
