Above is an image of my entry pass and just some of the colourful business cards I picked up, as I walked around the exhibition.

 

Just about a month ago, I was at the New Designers 2016 exhibition, in London. I saw some outstanding pieces of work on display, and I want to share some of those with you, in this post. Students from all around the UK were demonstrating the best of their degree work and I must say that I was pretty impressed with the quality of the work and the capability of the students!

I remember, towards the end of my degree, my fellow students and I were asked by the tutor if a group of us wanted to take some of our work to New Designers. Most of us were very keen, although we didn’t actually go. I’m not too sure why, but I suspect that it wasn’t properly organised. After visiting at the beginning of this month, I really wish we had been there!

Therefore, this was my first time to New Designers and it was very busy indeed. I was suprised at how big the venue was and by the professionalism of the work. There was so much talent and here, I share with you a selection of the textile and pattern designs which caught my eye; for their use of colour, drawing skills, creativity and trend awareness.
