Celia Birtwell

Celia Birtwell started out studying a textile design course at Salford School of Art in 1956 before meeting fashion designer Ossie Clark with whom she lived and worked, dressing the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix and Twiggy amongst others. She has recently designed new collections for Topshop and John Lewis, in clothing and homewares. Most excitingly, she was the subject of many David Hockney paintings!
