Saturday 6th October : London Design Festival - Design Junction talk by FranklinTill Studio

 On the Friday of London Design Festival I took part in a panel discussion exploring the role of colour in design, curated by FranklinTill Studio (Editor of Viewpoint Colour Magazine).  It began with an introduction to colour trend forecasting by Caro Till who then handed over to guest speakers DVTK who create immersive digital experiences and the food designer Arabeschi di Latte.  Each presentation perfectly complemented the group from such different disciplines but all glued together and guided by colour practice.  Here are snaps of my spectrum outfit lent by Kitty Joseph, Warstylist who attended wearing one of my necklaces and the colourful cocktails concocted for the event by Sweetdram.

Saturday 6th October : London Design Festival - Lubna Chowdhary

When I see something so good, it makes me emosh = Lubna Chowdhary, artist in residence at The V & A Museum.  The ceramicist opened up her studio during London Design Festival for visitors to have a poke around the paraphernalia of her process.  It was the BEST THING I'd seen for very long time and I've seen ALOT!!!!

Saturday 6th October : London Design Festival - Yinka Llori

Out of the four works that Yinka Ilori exhibited for London Design Festival I only managed to get to two!  In addition to installations at The Africa Centre and The Restoration Station, here are snaps from his "Estate Playground" sculpture park at Citizen M Hotel and the Design Salon setting for his symposium at the Now Gallery.  I wish I had more time to have seen them all but there will be another chance to experience his up-cycled cosmic vision at the 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair this weekend at Somerset House.

Friday 6th October: LFW SS18 - Ops & Ops

Thanks so much to Ops & Ops for gifting these magic silver 60s-inspired day-to-night shoes for me to wear at Fashion Week so I could go straight from the shows to the parties.  Perfect!  And with a lightly cushioned sole these slip-ons couldn't be more comfortable.  It's very rare that I step out of sneakers so I'm really chuffed to now own a proper stylish pair of flats.  I paired them with my silver foil trousers for the ultimate platinum effect!!

Friday 6th October: LFW SS18 - MM6 Maison Margiela

For SS18 MM6 Maison Margiela took over an empty premises on Floral Street and white-washed the entire thing......... even the bollards outside on the street!  Guests to the event could enter and view the collection in an installation or live photoshoot whilst the public could watch models on rotation in the windows.  I love how the lettering of the print is carried across the jacket onto the bare skin of the chest.
