I have just attended Interior Lifestyle in Tokyo. This is a smart little show that majors on high end design with a strong Global section. We have exhibited here twice before and this time our constant presence at the show has really paid off. I was able to spend a little more on stand fittings with the support of the BEDG and I am sure that this extra attention to detail had a positive effect.At times we were swamped by interested potential customers and I have great hopes that the orders will come in. I do not expect immediate results but I hope that by the end of the year we will have many more faithful customers.

THE AFRICAN AND AFRICAN-CARIBBEAN DESIGN DIASPORA FESTIVAL

A point of celebration is required to demonstrate the quality of creative thinking derived from London’s and the UK’s small but significant African and African-Caribbean* design community. This should provide a positive insight into design skills, engage and inspire others and create a promotional platform for designers working in London, the UK, Africa and the Caribbean.

The African and African-Caribbean Design Diaspora is a three year initiative of the British European Design Group (BEDG) to promote the creative skills and commercial potential of ethnic minorities of African and African-Caribbean descent in the UK and their creative counterparts in Africa and the Caribbean.

Co-funded by the Arts Council England/Lottery Fund and supported by the London Design Festival, the Initiative will run alongside the London Design Festival and the 2012 Olympics, with its final in September 2013.
