Bernard Nevill, one of Britain's most important textile designers, was the youngest student to attend London's St, Martin's College of Art shortly after turning fifteen.  Fashion illustrator, costume designer, interior decorator and professor in fashion and textile design, Nevill was a forerunner in the design of "Shabby chic." In 1960, Nevill was hired as consultant designer of textiles for Liberty London where he created prints that revitalized the traditional Liberty textiles. The prints he created strongly influenced the mod fashion designers of London during the sixties.
