I’ve been extremely fortunate to have experienced both Fashion Week and Design Week in New York City this year. At the end of this month, I’ll be heading across the pond and will find myself in the midst of the London Design Festival and all because of Blog Tour 2011.
Veronika Miller of Modenus, which is a small firm built entirely on Social Media, in essence took the belief she had in the power of design bloggers and decided to create Blog Tour 2011 which would bridge the North American and UK gap and bring us all together during this incredible string of design events.
With her partners MyDeco and AD Home Design Show and alongside several distinguished sponsors such as Blanco, Samuel Heath, Victoria + Albert, Du Verre Hardware, Spirit of Sports and Wallunica, myself and 14 other design and lifestyle bloggers will head to London and attend events such as 100% Design, Tent London and Origin Contemporary Craft Fair.
I’ve stomped the grounds of several design conferences but the London Design Festival seems different in that it knows no boundaries and literally takes design to its city streets. I am extremely excited and honoured to be part of this all and with such a fabulously charged agenda, I will be sure to have so much to show and share with you.
