Shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, Little’s work entered the permanent collections of the Vitra Design Museum in Basel and Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris; a remarkable honor for a woman still in her twenties. But, it wasn’t until a few years later, with magazine cover stories describing her first collection, “….the quality of which make them appropriate as art objects…”, that Little established her reputation as an accomplished designer, who at heart is an artist. The critics’ stories detailed the new language she had created, her couture craftsmanship and the imaginative characters she had shaped in the collection.
Her commissions and gallery pieces have been acquired for private collections in Europe and North America, as well as public collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
Mary Little lives and works in Downtown, Los Angeles.
