Look Like Love aims to highlight the creative talent of young people across the UK in disciplines including furniture design, graphic design, illustration and jewellery-making. The pair work by helping each designer -whether a graduate, student of part-time creative – by helping them with the business and marketing side of things to give them a platform to start out on their own.

The show will be housed in the space of design studio TheHouseWith, which has collaborated with Brewer and Asfaha on the project. It’s hoped this will be the first of many Look Like Love shows, with the inaugural outing showing work from six designers, all of whom will be on hand at the show on selected days to have a chat and answer questions about their practices.
