Florence Broadhurst: The Enigmatic Design Legend
With her designs gracing the walls of hip nightclubs, homewares, travel goods and fashion, Florence Broadhurst has become a global phenomenon. Her vibrant wallpaper designs had all but been forgotten until her original silk printing screens were discovered by design company Signature Prints, languishing in a dusty warehouse. During her life she was the queen of reinvention, hiding her humble beginnings and passing herself off as a French couturier and an English aristocrat. She returned home to Australia to revolutionise the design industry of Sydney in the 60s and 70s, only to have it all come to a terrible end. Join Claudia Chan Shaw for a look at Florence Broadhurst’s fascinating life and the design legacy she left behind.
Date: Tuesday 9 August 2022, 6.30pm.
Venue: Scone Arts & Crafts Centre, Kingdon St, Scone
