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.
The East London Design Show runs from 1 – 4 December at Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street, London EC1V, Friday from 12 to 8pm and on Saturday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
Admission costs £5 for adults, concessions £3 and accompanied children 15 and under are free.
