Founder of Luminary Colour, Anna Starmer

At Camira’s showroom in London, on the 21st May and 22nd May 2024, during Clerkenwell Design Week, creative director and founder of Luminary Colour, Anna Starmer, will reveal how Luminary turns global research into the concepts and stories that inspire brands to rethink their approach to colour.

Camira’s head of creative, Lynn Kingdon said:

“We’re incredibly excited to collaborate with Anna Starmer during our 50th year; colour plays a huge part in the design process of our products, and Anna’s expertise has been inspirational in the colouration of several new fabric ranges this year.”

Luminary Colour is a future research studio and has created design insight and colour inspiration for global brands for more than 20 years. During the presentations, Anna will also provide a preview of the six future stories inside her latest colour publication ‘LOVE’ with Luminary Colour books and colour swatches available for guests to be inspired by.

Anna Starmer commented:

“The key to beautiful design starts with a deep love for colour and materials; Camira is an expert in textile design and colour and I’m really looking forward to celebrating their 50th anniversary at Clerkenwell Design Week. During the discussion we’ll unveil four key colour directions created for Camira, inspired by colour storytelling and bought to life through beautiful photography.”

The news follows the launch of several new fabric launches for Camira; iconic wool felt Blazer has recently seen an injection of 36 new colourways and new worsted wool fabric Penta, explores polychromatic colour through combining five different warp and weft yarn colours

Launching during Clerkenwell Design Week, Patternmaker showcases digitally printed colour on a carefully curated woven felt base to bring new dimensions to both colour and pattern.
