Women designers have made an immense contribution to our shared material culture and built environment. However, in the narrative of design history, all too often their successes have been overshadowed by the achievements of their male counterparts. Women in Design redresses this balance, celebrating over a century of female creativity and ingenuity within all areas of design, including fashion, textiles, furniture, lighting, product, automotive, industrial, graphic and interactive as well as architecture.



Featuring over 100 profiles of pioneering women designers, some who have achieved global recognition such as Ray Eames, Charlotte Perriand and Zaha Hadid, it also introduces the fascinating and often untold stories of lesser-known designers, who have similarly shaped and enriched the story of design.
