LONDON, June 8, 2011 -

- This Season House of Fraser Celebrates a new and Exclusive Design
Collaboration With Renowned Designer Sue Timney.

Best known for her distinctive black and white designs, Sue Timney's work
flows effortlessly between fashion and interiors. Her exclusive collection
with House of Fraser marks an exciting new chapter in the designer's history,
and adds another exclusive label to the department store's ever-expanding
portfolio. Streets ahead of other retailers, with a diverse range of fashion,
one of the best shoe shops
(www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Shoes/319,default,sc.html) and an assortment
of interior and home ware, House of Fraser have everything under one roof.

Timney at House of Fraser encapsulates Sue's iconic designs, with a
collection of women's fashion and home product. Graphic and striking, her
signature monochrome designs are seen on bed linen, china and home
accessories, as well as a capsule collection of swimwear, beachwear and
fashion accessories.


Eclecticism has become a buzzword for British style and is at the heart
of Timney's signature designs. Nowhere is this more evident than across the
variety of graphic print silk scarves created exclusively for House of
Fraser. The 'Clock Face' design, synonymous with Timney, has been recreated
along with a range of beautiful animal and classical prints.

Monochrome stripes and beach-inspired Ammonite patterns appear on a range
of beach bags, women's swimwear and small leather accessories. Cosmetic bags
and passport holders with subtle interior-trims complement the collection,
which includes holiday essentials such as beach towels and 1950s-inspired
sunglasses. Matching graphic-print bikinis, swimming costumes and relaxed
women's dresses provide elegant and stylish beachwear and cover-up solutions.


With a distinctly neo-Classical feel, the Timney home collection is
predominantly black and white. Colour is introduced on a striking 'Menagerie'
design which features brightly-coloured exotic animals, on a black and white
Rococo-style background. Elsewhere, colour is used to highlight fine bone
china, whilst 'Cathedral' features monochrome twisted columns on a
contrasting pink background with a stylish black and white stripe rim.

The rest of the collection caters for monochrome purists. Timney's
signature 'Regency' stripe livens up homeware, with this iconic detail also
forming the background of the chic 'Fleur de Lys' print. A Fornasetti-style
cameo embellishment is used on a cushion and cake stand, whilst Timney's
iconic 'Clock Face' works perfectly on a cushion and across dinnerware.

House of Fraser has 61 stores in the United Kingdom and Ireland, offering
luxurious items and a premium shopping experience. From the latest men's,
women's and children's clothing to beauty essentials and must-have home
accessories, House of Fraser continues to expand its much-loved collections,
from House of Fraser dresses online (
) to interior designing, both online at houseoffraser.co.uk and in stores
across the country.
