I visited New Designers at the Business Design Centre in Islington on Wednesday and can highly recommend this year’s exhibition. This showcase of graduate talent from the year’s creative arts students is an annual treat for fashionistas, enthusiasts and designers alike.
Seeing (and trying on!) the fruits of three years hard study and creative work from the hundreds of students who exhibit there is a privilege and even more so to be able to meet the student designers and hear about their design process and inspirations.
Hallmark Salon 2014 opens soon at Somerset House, one of the major arts and cultural centres in the heart of London from Tuesday 24 – Saturday 28 June 2014. 86 of Britain’s most prominent designer jewellers and silversmiths will offer jewellery and precious objects using a glittering array of gold, silver, diamonds and precious stones and the key is that every piece has been hallmarked in the United Kingdom.
Time to get ready for a day out! The New Designers exhibition is being held once again at the Business Design Centre in Islington, later this month on 25 - 28 June. As in previous years, the event showcases the work of thousands of creative arts students in the UK, showing off the brightest and best talent in each graduating year: the real joy of the exhibition is knowing that you will see some absolutely exceptional work but not knowing where it will come from or what the style will be.

Trends for SS14 carry many themes from seasons past: sizeable statement pieces, heavy chains and mixed media jewellery to name a few. What sets this season’s look apart is the detail.
There has been a special emphasis on marrying various patterns, colours and textures alongside each other in this season’s clothing ranges that would not ordinarily hang comfortably together, somewhat reminiscent of the manner in which traditional Japanese artists elegantly depict disparate patterns alongside each other.
A new book has just arrived on the marketplace that promises to become a staple on every silverworker's bookshelf.
