It’s really exciting here at the moment.
Darren, my work placement student from Stoke on Trent, has come up with some stunning designs for a screen and for a shelving
unit that I will be able to take to 100% Design and other trade show. I’m working on the swatches for the wall panels and for the fabric for a chaise longue that Darren is also designing. (See Darren’s centre piece table on the left)
My International Trade student from France is doing a grand job. We have a possible collaboration with a designer in Provence and a possible bedroom refurb in a hotel in Paris.
I’ve finally updated my interiors portfolio and am about to start the update of my fashion/apparel portfolio, which is such a relief as I was worried just in case I got a call to visit a designer and hadn’t done it!
I’ve also been to the Graduate Show’s for Textile Design at Derby University and Nottingham Trent over the past two evening and have been very impressed with the quality of design at both universities.
