Marian Clayden was born in Preston, England, and attended the Nottingham School of Art. In the late 1960s, she moved to California’s Bay Area where she abandoned painting and began a new career as a textile designer, using the dyeing technique of shibori. In 1981, she launched her own brand, Clayden Inc. She is best known for hand- dyeing her garments, printed silk, cut-velvet and lace fabrics. Her label, which closed in 2005, designed evening wear for high profile clients.
