Spring Fair 2016 - Birmingham NEC
The Spring Fair is a prestigious trade fair showcasing companies work, products and designs for bulk buying. The show consisted of interiors, giftware, lighting, kitchen, outdoors, beauty and much more. Being at the trade show as a student really opened my mind into how some industries work and their process behind showcasing and selling products and designs.
It was of great value to speak to industry professionals on what they look for in student portfolios and how the as a company try to expand on ideas. Getting first hand information and advice from companies such as Voyage, Clarke & Clarke and M.Y.B Textiles has influenced me and my practice and what I want to consider after graduation. Gaining the knowledge and contacts will be extremely helpful for my future in the textiles industry.
