30 Years of service!


One of our amazing talented and experience curtian makers and member of Livingstone Textiles Bridport staff have been with the company for 30 years this week. This is such an amazing achievement and we are so lucky to have her with us and have learnt and continue to learn from her wealth of knowledge.

This news has got us to thinking what was the fabric like back 30 years ago in October 1986 and what was in fashion.


Its the month that Top Gun come out in the cinema, and was a major hit in the cinema, a movie that was a hit for years to come!

“Don’t Leave Me This Way” by the Communards was 1st in the music charts, and was a song that we would all be humming for years tocome.

What fabrics were we selling at Livingstone Textiles and what would have Madeline been wearing on her first day to work? Laura Ashleigh and her very floral prints were in, florals, in general, were very popular both in fashion and in soft furnishings.

In fashion we see big shoulder pads and power dressing………….
