I was listening to BBC Radio London 94.9 this morning as usual and it was great to hear the interview with Ben Evans, Director of the London Design Festival, which is about to start this week, and after the Olympics and Paralympics, let the party continue. It’s been a fantastic time in London this year!!!!
The London Design Festival is in its 10th year, and there are lots of exciting design works to see, I just love this time of year……it’s so inspiring, and it’s a great time for me to meet-up with other fellow designers, and meet new ones. I won’t be exhibiting this year, I thought I’d take a break and visit the shows instead and I can’t wait.
I thought I’d introduce you to a couple of events, with links, to whet your appetite, here are just a few:
Craft Central’s One Day Designers Sale – Interior Products: Products for the London Design Festival starts on Monday 17th September. There will be lots of interesting goodies from designers to kickstart the festival, and you will also get a chance to meet the designers.
I was kindly asked by Craft Central to decorate their window space for this event, so please look out for our wallpapers from the “All Things British” collection, also available on our new online shop.
Here are a few links to other exciting shows happening in London, visit:
- 100 Percent Design
- Design Junction
- Super Brands London
- Tent London
- African & African Caribbean Design Diaspora (AACDD)
You can also checkout the London Design Festival website for more shows and information about what’s happening around London.
Also, I really like The Icon Design Trail 2012 book, a useful guide to the best events and shows during the festival. The guide is free and you can usually pick them up from various design shops and at the above events. Please visit ICONEYE of Icon Magazine for more information and you can also download their app.
Enjoy the festival.
