Last Saturday I went down to London to The Best of British Open Call at Liberty. This is a rare opportunity for designers to go to the store to meet the buyers face to face and show them their work.
People start queuing early with boxes, cases, furniture, clothing and all sorts and everyone is full of nervous excitement! When I arrived at 7.30 am there were already about 200 people before me. When the shop doors open at 9 am the queue filters up and up the spiral stairs to the top floor where the buyers are waiting.
It was lovely feeling like a part of this beautiful shop. It is so polished and old and utterly beautiful, full of quality and craftsmanship. I visited the day before to have a look at the wallpaper department and I was happy that I thought my book would nestle in quite comfortably.
The buyers were so lovely and they liked my wallpapers a lot. I'm ever so happy about that as you can imagine :)
I'm looking forward to hearing from them again soon.
