The London Design FestivalCelebrating London as the gateway to international design, the London Design Festival celebrates is 15th anniversary in 2017 with hundreds of events and landmark projects. The annual festival takes in sectors as diverse as fashion, architecture, retail, typography, photography and textiles in an ambitious city-wide project. Over nine days in September, cultural institutions like the V&A, Somerset House and the Design Museum take part and the city is divided into eight design districts - there are hubs in Brompton, Chelsea, Clerkenwell, Islington, Queens Park and Shoreditch. Events vary from product launches in tiny boutiques to massive trade shows including designjunction and 100% Design. Look out for this year's landmark projects: Camille Walala's colourful architectural playground in the middle of Broadgate, Ross Lovegrove's Transmission, 'While We Wait' by Elias and Yousef Anastas, and Reflection Room by Flynn Talbot, an immersive coloured light experience housed in the new Prince Consort Gallery, all at the V&A.
