So September heralds the start of the new school year, a new season (although it’s been feeling very Autumnal for some time now) and the kick off to the Autumn design shows. The coming months are packed to the gunwales with exciting, fun and sometimes plain silly (I tend to like those the most) events, shows, openings and launches.
So time to sharpen my pencils and get out my sketch book as I’ll be sourcing, blogging and looking for inspiration at some of the coming shows.
