New Designers 2017 to showcase emerging design, future trends and talent

Bethany Stafford

New Designers, the exhibition for emerging design, is the place to see the latest design trends and to be the first to discover the UK’s rising stars. Now in its 32nd edition, the annual show continues to deliver new generations of brilliant talent every year, ready for businesses and the design-savvy public to snap up and set them on their creative paths.

Taking place at the Business Design Centre in London over two weeks, New Designers is divided into two parts across the spectrum of creative disciplines. The first week focuses on textiles and fashion, costume design, jewellery and precious metalwork, and ceramics and glass. While the second features furniture, product and industrial design, spatial design and interiors, graphic design, illustration and animation, motion and digital arts.

Kicking off on 28 June, highlights include The New Designers Awards, a celebration of creative excellence and innovation, with accolades presented to the year’s most talented graduate designers in partnership with leading brands and organisations.

Elsewhere, there's the popular One Year On – a showcase of entrepreneurial designers in their first year of business, returning with its largest edition to date – many of whom's work you can see featured here.
