I've recently returned from exhibiting a selection of my work at Top Drawer trade show after being selected by Charlotte Abrahams to be part of the Spotted section with other handpicked small design based businesses. Everyone was really friendly and I met lots of lovely people (no dragon's den types which i thought I might encounter!) It was really relaxed and apart from being on your feet all day it was really inspirational to be part of something so established and huge!! It was invaluable for me to make contacts and get my work in new places. Here are some pictures!
