We’ve been out and about taking in the sights and stories at LDF recently and one of the most interesting recurring themes was sketching. The Moleskine event V&A offered had both interesting insights and a chance for visitors to get involved with ‘sketch relay’. There were dozens of notebooks on display and lots of ‘off-the-cuff’ pages on site featuring the sketches, ponderings and design ideas of more than 70 London designers including Benjamin Hubert, Tracey Neuls and David Lupton.

We also spotted some lovely new fabric designs by Emma Lonsdale on display at the Skandium store in the Brompton Quarter. Her playful yet chic ‘Sunday Stroll’ is sure to put a smile on any face and her delicate sketches showed the design process from start to finish.
