New Designers, One Year On 2016
We’re delighted to announce applications for New Designers, One Year On 2016 are now open.
One Year On is a high profile, exclusively curated feature within New Designers, showcasing designers with an entrepreneurial flair in their first year of business. Those who are chosen to exhibit are selected by a panel of industry specialists on the strength and ambition demonstrated through their work.
One Year On is a fantastic chance to get your work in front of press, buyers and industry trend setters. We welcome applications from all design fields - from jewellery and fashion, to furniture and film. In each part, our sponsors and partners demonstrate their support for emerging UK design talent and creativity by presenting a New Designers One Year On Award at the prestigious VIP Awards Evening to the year's most talented designer. These awards are industry recognised, and present a huge recognition to your work.
As a new business, One Year On gives you the awareness, confidence and direction to succeed. Benefits of the show are like no other, and being part of the event gives you the guidance and support you need. Benefits include:
· Preparation day to show you the space, and give hints and tips to exhibiting before the event
· Webinars giving you vital skills when entering the commercial world
· Access to our PR team and the opportunity to gain priceless exposure
Previous One Year On exhibitors include Paul Cummins, the ceramics designers behind ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’, the ceramic Poppy memorial at the Tower of London, David Irwin, the contemporary Product and Furniture Designer who now designs for Habitat and Deadgood and jeweller, Imogen Belfield.
