Last week @ New Designers

New designers was definitely an eye opener! The place was just as amazing as last year if not better. I couldn't quite believe the competition i was going to be dealing with. Most of the work was stunning particularly the jewellery in "one year on"... if i had the money i would have bought it all!

My stand was nice and easy to put up as i only had 2 metres of wall to work with...


Janice Webb who also studied with me at Farnham had a lot of attention particularly from the judges... we are all very excited to see where her work takes her in the future and if you get a chance to take a look at her work, I'm sure you'd agree with me that the colour and shape is just beautifully designed...  https://twitter.com/janiceewebb


In all honesty, New designers probably wasn't the best experience for me professionally as i felt it was too commercial based. I didn't feel that i was getting the right attention to my work, however this has encouraged me to look for a variety of pathways to introduce my work to. It has been an exciting week, an exciting year too and am still excited to whatever the life in design may bring...



As for the rest of the textile girls, I'd like to wish them all the best of luck for the future and I look forward to hearing about all the amazing jobs we're (fingers crossed) going to get from all this hard work!
