The team had a gloriously sunny couple of days visiting Clerkenwell Design Week; an independent design festival held yearly in one of the most creative districts in London. We explored the many exciting exhibitions, visited showrooms and presented future design trends to visitors. Not only do we attend Clerkenwell to discover new product launches and new designers but we also pick up on trend confirmations from our previous forecasts; looking at how our colour and material prediction come into fruition.

Women make up a big majority of the visitors and we thought it might be inspiring, well received and certainly interesting, if there was a programme of talks by-women-for-women. Of course, men were welcome to join us for any of the seminars (and some did), but the speakers were all female. And what a success it was!
In searching for women to speak, content, experience, passion and purpose were our primary criteria. We found many great speakers, you can read about them here. But, one speaker in particular inspired me to think about design, buildings and some specific everyday features in an entirely different way.
