A MEMORIAL fund has been launched at the V&A Museum of Design Dundee to commemorate the life and work of Scots designer Moira Gemmill, who was killed in a cycling accident in London earlier this year.

Ms Gemmill, who worked at the V&A in London for more than ten years, is to be commemorated in a gallery in the new museum, the development of which she had supported from the beginning.

A memorial will also be created in her memory as part of the V&A’s annual Illustration Awards, with the prize for the overall winner given in her name.

Philip Long, director of V&A Dundee said: “Moira was a proud Scot, with a love of design and a belief in its power to create change.”
