Liberty, sham tudor landmark asian goods retailer.
Location: Regent Street, London, W1B 5AH
Description: Arthur Lasenby Liberty, inspired by his 10 years of service, started a business of his own, believing that he could change the look of homewares and fashion.
With a 2000 loan from his future father-in-law, Arthur Liberty took on the lease of half a shop at 218a Regent Street opposite Farmers and Rogers. Liberty could only afford to employ a young girl of 16 and a Japanese boy. But on the day of opening William Judd a colleague of Liberty from Farmers and Rogers decided to follow him in his new venture.
The buildings are considered landmarks and stand out in the London's architectural landscape. Liberty specialized in selling goods imported from Asia. Everything from textiles to objects d'art.
Liberty's Tudor shop is built of wood from the HMS Impregnable and the HMS Hindustan.
