I have just returned home from a 6 day trip to London where I was showcasing my graduate collection at New Designers. Industry showed interest in my prints and I have subsequently gained valuable contacts and internship offers which I will be following up. Below is a picture of my display.
I also had a little bit of free time in the city, so I visited a few places of interest. Of course a visit to Liberty was essential, as it never dissapoints. The beautiful interiors company 'House Of Hackney' had a room display setting with their fabric adorning sofa's, lampshades and cushions. Truly stunning.
As New Designers takes place in Islington, I finally got the chance to have a look in 'Cass Art' which is located nearby. This fantastic art shop has 3 floors of specialist art and craft supplies including: various drawing media, sketchbooks, paints and portfolios, with many items on offer or in the sale. It can be found on Colebrooke Row, near Upper Street. This is the flagship store, but there is also 4 other outlets in London.
