Inspirational day for designers

Block 4 designers recently set out on a day trip to London. First stop was the Design Museum to look at the Designs of the Year exhibition. The Fashion award went to the Pop Art inspired collection designed by Miuccia Prada, which included large scale printed faces and brightly coloured gem stones. We also visited the Paul Smith exhibition, giving us an insight into his design philosophy, and a look around his quirky office and great examples of some his iconic designs. Our second stop, the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at The Barbican for me was the most exciting. The exhibition was a unique display of innovative garments, with projected talking faces onto mannequins. All-in-all, a very inspirational day!
