There was an exhibition Located just near the Golden Lane campus for Footwear (where I studied Shoe Design and Making) – which was hidden away in an old building on a side street. It exhibited some of Britain and Korea’s, new up and coming designers. The designs varied between clothing, home appliances, art, furniture, lighting, cards, sculptures and even fireplaces. This exhibit was a great accidental find and a huge eye opener into the talent that the design culture that London possesses; The exhibition is on St John’s street, near Farringdon station.
