New Designers means New Ideas
Taking place throughout June and July, New Designers at Business Design Centre in Islington, London is the UK’s highly respected graduate design show at which students present the fruits of their three year’s of research and study.
Full of innovation and thinking ‘outside the box’, the show is a great pull for industry leaders, talent spotters and fashion thinkers as future art/design/fashion talent spring forth into one of the world’s leading creative centres.
One Year On is a key part of the show since it exhibits the work of successful graduates, showing what they have achieved since graduation, the businesses that they have established and how they have achieved this. Linking graduates with those graduating creates a connection between the past present and future for all to see as well as flagging up the need to be innovative and entrepreneurial to be successful. The show will see over 3,000 talented design graduates come together from throughout the UK to showcase the future of design and creativity. The event is divided into eight design zones including Textiles, Fashion and Accessories.
Look out for our exclusive feature in COVER 31 where we reveal exclusive previews of the New Designers show and the One Year On show as well as the COVER stand at Part 1, 26-29 June.
