What/who inspires you in your work and why? Other designers and artists; I really appreciate the time, talent, and thought process that goes into making great work - whether it’s an illustration, a piece of furniture or a dress. I often look to the past for inspiration, both in traditional technique and design. I love everything about the mid-century period and the way it influences the things we’re seeing made today by designers like Orla Kiely. It goes without saying that Liberty prints and their heritage also provides a great jumping-off point for me too.


What is your main goal for the next 6 - 12 months? My biggest goal is to expand my range. I have a lot of ideas in the prototype and road test stage and I can’t wait to have them available for sale! I want to focus on getting Cherish Me “out there” and would definitely like to exhibit at a trade show later on in the year.


Is “handmade” a lifestyle choice for you and if so why? Handmade is certainly a lifestyle choice. There is a noticeable difference in quality and longevity when an item can be produced small scale. It’s great to know I’m supporting like-minded individuals when I’m buying handmade.


Liberty Moore’s work is available from her online shop Cherish Me or in store at Liberty of London.
