London Design Festival has earned a reputation as a key calendar moment in London’s autumn creative season. Alongside London Fashion Week, Frieze Art Fair and the London Film Festival, the event attracts the greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators to the capital.
London Design Festival celebrates its fifteenth year in 2017, with an inspiring programme of events and installations, which will see the city transformed throughout 16-24 September.
The Festival returns to the V&A as its main hub, with iconic spaces within the Museum being transformed by an extraordinary collection of specially-commissioned installations and displays by some of the world’s most exciting designers.
To celebrate 15 years, the Festival, along with headline partner, British Land, will launch a series of commissions and installations, including a landmark project at Broadgate Circus with renowned textile designer Camille Walala.
As a citywide event, London Design Festival provides a platform for the capital’s major tradeshows including: 100% Design, Decorex International, designjunction, Focus/17 and The London Design Fair (including Tent London & Super Brands). These shows feature work from a local and international network of both new and established exhibitors.

The Districts include Bankside Design District, Brompton Design District, Brixton Design Trail, Chelsea Design Quarter, Clerkenwell Design Quarter, Islington Design District, Mayfair Design District, and Shoreditch Design Triangle.
