London Design Festival is only a hop, skip and a jump away and I’m delighted to be taking part this year. My Imperial Mono fabric will be exhibited at DesignJunction, on the Design Event stand F52. It will feature alongside a collection of innovative, contemporary homeware by new designers from the North (detailed here).
In preparation for the event, I thought I’d share the story behind Imperial…
As a Manchester based designer I didn’t have to travel far in search of inspiration for this geometric pattern, which is influenced by the Media City Swing Bridge in Salford. I was keen to document some of Media City’s development in a textile design and was particularly fascinated with the structure of this footbridge. So after lots of sketching and compositional experimentation, Imperial was created. The design now comes in three colours: Monochrome, green and more recently vintage mustard. It is available on fabric by the metre, cushions, lampshades and tea towels.
I hope that’s enough to tempt you to visit DesignJunction and see the Imperial Mono fabric in all its glory. I’ll also be there with my new swatch book bursting with fabrics from every collection, including the latest Prism range (out on Monday 1st September). Do pop by and say hello!
If you fancy seeing what else London Design Festival has to offer, stay tuned for my top picks next week.
