East London Design Show

It seems like only yesterday we brought you news of the East London Design Show 2010 – and now it’s back, bringing a host of designers and designer-makers together to battle their way through the cast of The Only Way is Dalston to Shoreditch town hall.

With more than 38 new designers joining the ranks, the show will once again play host to a vast selection of glass, ceramics, jewellery, women’s and men’s fashion and accessories, children’s clothing and toys, stationery, home-wares and furniture.

Louise Salmon certainly saw the pun-hungry Design Week newsdesk coming with her brilliantly titled range of T-shirts and illustrations, Just for the Halibut; while People Will Always Need Plates will present their ever-lovely homeware designs.

We’re also rather taken with the works of Twisted Twee (perhaps, admittedly, because of the name); as well as the Mary Poppins-esque Made of Carpet, er, carpet bags.

Ever-attuned to the cash-strapped amongst us, the event will also be hosting some D.I.Y. gift making workshops, with tips on hat and corsage making and creating your own Christmas cards and decorations.
