The London Design FestivalA true celebration of the capital's all-encompassing design industry, The London Design Festival takes in sectors as diverse as fashion, architecture, retail, typography, photography and textiles in an ambitious city-wide project. In 2015 highlights include Frida Escobedo's installation in the V&A's John Madejski Garden, the museum also has Faye Toogood's two-part installation, The Cloakroom, which makes visitors temporary custodians of the V&A. There's a special installation marking the centenary of the birth of Robin Day, Barnaby Barford's Tower of Babel - made of 3,000 bone china London shop facades - and designers Laetitia de Allegri and Matteo Fogale create a colourful installation on the bridge over the Medieval and Renaissance Galleries. Somerset House hosts '10 Designers in the West Wing', and artist Alex Chinneck erects an inverted 35-metre high electricity pylon for 'A Bullet From A Shooting Star' in the Greenwich Peninsula. Dividing the city into seven official Design Districts - with Bankside as a new zone for 2015 - there are hubs in Brompton, Chelsea, Clerkenwell, Islington, Queens Park and Shoreditch. Events within each come in all shapes and sizes whether it's lunch at Lyle's, product launches in tiny boutiques or massive trade shows including designjunction and 100% Design which moves to Olympia this year. A fun, fascinating exploration of cutting edge design across the city.
