My new blog for the FT's How To Spend It is on silk scarves. I interview designer Vicki Murdoch, who sells her beautiful bespoke scarves in Liberty, and Natasha Chambers, who sells hers through e-boutique Avenue 32. You can read the full blog here.

Whenever I write a blog for the FT so many images come to mind. This post is a kind of overspill.. feel free to add suggestions for other scarf designers in the comments.
