Liberty used to be a haven for a sophisticated English clientele and tourists looking exquisite fabrics for dressmaking. It has transformed however, into a hot spot for designer wear and cosmetics. The building itself is of historical significance, with its striking mock-Tudor facade and a splendid galleried-oak staircase inside. The arts section is accompanied by a snug cafe serving delicious cakes. Antiques, a bridal section and homeware can be found in the basement; contemporary jewelery and Liberty specialty accessories are at ground level; and there are sections for cosmetics, gifts and unisex designer fashion labels. Liberty has become a mecca for the new as well as more established designers, including Kostas Murkudis, Martine Sitbon and Issey Miyake. The fabrics and textiles department remains second to none and the excellent home furnishings and crafts are strikingly varied.
