For 4 days in September The Truman Brewery in Brick Lane became the venue for the must see show of The London design Festival. TentLondon [only 4 years old]gathered together an exciting and eclectic mix of exhibitors. From lights made from scurrying rats [they were dead]to a giant Knitting Nancy, the range of textiles, furniture, ceramics, lighting and interior products was awe inspiring. With queues around the block to get in, Tent had more buzz than a beehive.
I kept expecting the soup dragon to appear from
Tomomi Sayuda's weird and wonderful light.
Ben Murdock's eccentric ceramics
Hand-blown glass jewels from Curiousa & Curiousa

Jessica Light Trims and Tassels had a fantastic show. Our new collections were received really well with half our stand all ready gone to press both here in the U.K and America. We also had a couple of the big guns in the interiors market wanting us  to design trimmings ranges for them.
